Reebok has brought two of its most iconic silhouettes — the Classic Leather and the Alien Stomper — together to create the new Classic Leather Stomper. Although one may be a mainstream lifestyle favorite while the other is a memorable movie prop worn by Sigourney Weaver's Lieutenant Ellen Ripley in Aliens, here they exist in near-perfect synthesis.
The sculpted leather upper and EVA foam midsole of the Classic Leather are used as a base, then dressed in the Stomper's original cream, gray and red color scheme. Cream serves as the primary tone, while red adds flair to tongues, branded embellishments, heel trim and outsoles. Meanwhile, gray graces on the heel and collar liner. Signature Stomper stylings are most notable on the throat and heel. The former features a large Velcro-secured overlay that sits atop a ridged red tongue, while the latter adds a duo of dashing stripes on its gray base.
This isn't the first time the Stomper has been fused with other memorable Reebok silhouettes. 2019 saw nanamica mash Ripley's signature kicks together with the Club C to create the new Club C Stomper, but this altered Classic Leather is the first widely available Stomper hybrid.
Alien Day may not be till April 26, but this Classic Leather Stomper is available now at the Reebok webstore for $120 USD.
