Reebok Is Bringing Back Ripley’s Futuristic Sneakers for Alien Day
— GeekTyrant (@GeekTyrant) March 29, 2016
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Aliens, Twentieth Century Fox has partnered with Reebok to release a limited number of high-top Alien Stompers, the futuristic sneakers Sigourney Weaver’s character, Ellen Ripley, wore in James Cameron’s classic sci-fi sequel. The mid-top kicks that Lance Henriksen’s android Bishop wore will also make a comeback, and both will be available for sale in select Reebok stores and at Reebok.com on April 26, a.k.a. Alien Day.
In addition to throwback footwear, expect Alien Day to bring nationwide screenings, limited edition action figures, new comic books and novels, and an ultimate trivia challenge during which fans will get a chance to win Alien memorabilia and prizes every 42.6 minutes on Twitter.
