On “Alien Day” which was this past Wednesday Reebok announced the Alien Stomper “Final Battle” pack.
The “Final Battle” pack will have two shoes which designs were inspired by James Cameron’s “Aliens”. The Yellow shoe aka “The Powerloader” was inspired by Ripley’s battle-ready cargo suit, is an impressive work of art. Icy orange outsoles complement the striking ‘safety yellow’ leather upper, while red arrows reference the suit’s hydraulic movement. Debossed ‘PWL’ heel graphics and call-outs clarify the model’s identity, including the P-5000 serial number. As a nod to the canopy that protects Ripley during the final showdown, mesh panels overlay the Reebok logo, while quilting on the tongue and insoles evokes the industrial mechanoid’s upholstery.
The Black color-way aka “Queen” Alien Stomper was inspired by the gloss finish of the Xenomorph exoskeleton. A tribute to the deadly matriarchal villain, the shoes are assembled using high-sheen black patent leather and a toxic green glow that pulses beneath the translucent midsole as a nod to the Queen’s corrosive blood. To complete the ensemble, the Stomper’s signature forefoot strap is embroidered with ‘XX121’, the code designation given to the extraterrestrial species.
The Alien Stomper “Final Battle” pack is set to release on July 18th, 2017. You can pre-order the shoe right now by visiting the Union Square Reebok (NYC) FitHub to register for the ‘Final Battle’ pack in advance of the July release. You can also visit here. This pack is retailed at $325.
