Reebok Announces New Colonial Marines Themed Bug Stompers For Alien Day 2020!

With 2020’s Alien Day fast approaching that means we’re in store for another spin on Aliens classic Bug Stomper shoes! And for 2020 Reebok is going Colonial Marines themed with camouflage!

Stomp aliens in style. These futuristic shoes are inspired by the ones worn in a legendary 1986 science fiction movie. The iconic strap made them easy to slip on and off quickly for quick scene changes. Camouflage graphics and a “Bug Stomper” label give them an authentic vibe. The upper is made of a supple, full-grain leather.

I’m not expert enough to say they expertly replicate the pattern used for the camouflage in Aliens, but they certainly look similar to my eyes! They also come with the motto “We endanger species” and the two eyes from the back of Hudson’s armor!

In previous years Reebok has released both Bishops (mid-top) and Ripley’s (high-top) versions of the Bug Stompers actually featured in Aliens. They’ve also released custom versions inspired by the Power-Loader and the Alien Queen. These tend to sell out pretty quickly and are considered something of a collector’s item. The new USCM Bug Stompers are due to go on sale at the Reebok website on Saturday, April 25th at 11:00 pm for a cool £169.95.

    Can't wait to see what else they have coming ;D

    Very little unfortunately. Just had the email with everything. The only new products are the shoes, and 2 new Reebok shirts. There's also going to be some discounts for Aliens vs. Pinball and Alien: Blackout. Oterhwise its pimping existing releases like the Mega Construx eggs, the Lanard figures and some release dates for the other books out this year.

    The shoes also come with a fancy pants holographic box.

    Correction, Blackout will be free to download on Alien Day. And a sweepstakes for Isolation on the Switch.

    Sorry, it looks like another sweepstakes for the Isolation comics, not a copy of the game.

    I'm not keen on the new trainers - if I'm gonna get a pair of ridiculous retro movie-inspired shoes, I'd rather they just looked like the ones in the movie - but I'm glad they're doing at least something for Alien Day this year. I imagine stuff like physical merch is probably too far along in development and production to really cancel anyway. I wouldn't be surprised if the event's a bit more low-key though.

    And going back to the shoes, I hope for anyone interested they don't get scalped as bad as the last few releases have.

    Thanks for the news, keep it up in these boredom killing times.

    That said, they look like your bog standard camouflage trainers found at any Sports Direct. In other words chavvy! Except Sport Directs one are £25-£45 rather than 5p short of £170.

    These Reeboks just added novelty Weyland Yutani patch and Looney Tunes! eyes.


    Apologies if we have any chav ALIENS fans on the forum whose other past-times are McDonalds and generally being a mallrat.

    Safariflage was a commercial camo pattern that came out well after the movie was made. In the early days of USCM costumes, many people decided to use it since the colors were similar to the ones used in the movie.

    Thanks for clearing up Aaron! I've removed the reference to Safariflage from the post.

    I've got Bishop's mid-tops, but I actually kind like these! I wasn't a fan of the Power-Loader or Queen ones from 2018(?) but these ones work for me.

    Safariflage was a commercial camo pattern that came out well after the movie was made. In the early days of USCM costumes, many people decided to use it since the colors were similar to the ones used in the movie. Years later 'Men At Arms' made screen accurate camoflauge, and he had 3 different versions. His 2nd Pattern was the most accurate - of which I have a set. He then seemingly disappeared.

    Since then, I had taken on the task to reproduce the camo, and I drew it up in AutoCAD over a period of months. The camo that was used in the movie, was made specifically for the movie. It did not exist anywhere else - even though there are some similarities to various camo such as EDRL. My own brand of camo, I called HORPAT. Unknown to me, Spat Cave Studios was also working on reproducing the camo, and sometime later Chef's Creations also got into the game. Screen accurate camo is available to people that want to buy it. It's not safariflage.
