Reebok Is Bringing Back the Lance Bishop-Approved Alien Stomper

Quote
Ridley Scott's 1979 film Alien is praised as one of the best sci-fi films ever made. To celebrate the film's 40th anniversary, Reebok is bringing back a special edition of the mid-top Alien Stomper famously worn by one of the film's protagonists Lance Bishop in the 1986 sequel Aliens.

Not quite as extravagant as the ultra high-cut pair worn by main hero Ellen Ripley in the film, this pair is a much more wearable height. The shoe maintains its OG appearance with a cream leather upper, grey suede on the heel and strap, large midfoot strap, and red detailing. Reebok branding can be seen on the lateral and medial portion of the strap, ankle strap, and heel.

Insta buy! I got the queen vs power loader shoe set and people always take notice when I (sparingly) wear them.

I hear you brother, and I guess I couldn't pass up an opportunity to be nitpicky, but "Bishop" and "40th Anniversary" do both appear in the name of the shoe:

Reebok Alien Stomper Bishop Edition "40th Anniversary"
Release Date: 04/26/19
Color: Scarlet/Snowy Grey/Castle
Style #: DV8578
Price: $180

Hey, maybe they will release Brett's shoewear in 2026!  ;D

Sure, but the actual post about the shoes -- from the makers -- specifically mentions that it's in honour of the 40th anniversary of Alien.

Like yeah, Alien Day is for the series as a whole, but they'e specifically jumping onto the 40th anniversary of the original film for the release. That's different.

Maybe they'll release Marty's back to the future shoes for the 40th anniversary of Terminator.

I'd buy those!

Well then they have to release Kyle Reece's trench-coat for the 58th anniversary of Short Circuit

I'd buy that too!

It looks like I'm buying me some Alien 40th Anniversary Bishop sneakers! ;D
