On April 26, sci-fi fans the world over celebrated Alien Day, a reference to LV-426, the moon from 1986’s Aliens. There were all sorts of special events — I caught a big screen showing of the original film — but what got us most excited was Reebok’s reveal of the Alien Stomper “Final Battle” Pack.
Featuring two pairs of sneakers — the Queen Alien Stomper inspired by the glossy skeleton of a Xenomorph and the Powerloader Alien Stomper reminiscent or Ripley’s iconic cargo suit — the $325 “Final Battle” Pack officially hits Reebok.com and all Reebok Certified Network and Affiliate Accounts on Tuesday, July 18 at 12pm in honor of the original release date of Aliens. But New York sneakerheads will be able to get theirs a day early.
Reebok has revealed that on Monday, July 17, the Reebok FitHub in Union Square (1 Union Square West, NY, NY 10003) will be selling 50 of the Alien Stomper “Final Battle” packs while supplies last. Available in unisex sizes 4-13 with a one pack per customer limit, those lucky enough to snag a pack between 10am and 9pm will also get custom Alien-inspired pins as a gift with purchase. In addition to the pack, limited edition, numbered unisex T-shirts — seven designs total — inspired by the Alien Stomper will also be for sale.
