It looks like Reebok is releasing a version of Ripley's shoes from the Aliens movie...
Not to be outdone by Nike’s shameless cashing in on the prop sneakers it created for Back to the Future II, Reebok is releasing the high-top alien-stomping sneakers that Sigourney Weaver wore in Aliens.
They’re available April 26.
The release is timed to coincide with the upcoming ‘Alien Day’ celebrations being held on April 26, because everything needs an official holiday now. Reebok previously released a mid-top version of the shoe, but this will be the first time collectors will be able to get the high-top iteration seen in the film.
My first thought was....who even knew she was wearing shoes in that movie?!
I was too busy squinting at the movie screen through my fingers and trying not to wet myself from fear to notice what she was wearing on her feet.
That being said, they do seem like pretty cool shoes.
