Reebok Aliens Bug Stomper Shoes
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.
You’ll notice on the back of the shoes that there are some extra details for the hardcore Aliens fans out there. On the left strap on the back, there’s the red, white and blue design from the USMC patch the soldiers wear. Meanwhile, the right strap on the back says “We endanger species.” Not only is it a reference to the movie, but it’s also accurate of all humans. Social commentary!
But the best touch is the googly eyes that can be seen on the armor worn by Bill Paxton’s character Private Hudson.
So how can you get these Reebok Aliens Bug Stomper shoes? They go on sale at the Reebok UK website on April 25, just before Alien Day on April 26.
