Reebok's reissues of their Alien Stompers tie-in with Aliens are like a shoebox time capsule from 1986. Sneakerheads and fans of the series are going to be clamoring for these. And sweetening the deal is that packaging. The box features the big, bold Weyland-Yutani Corp logo on top of an iridescent finish. I'm a sucker for in-universe merch, and keeping that theme from the actual product to the packaging shows how much a brand cares about a collaboration. Now I'm just wondering how big the box will be for Ripley's hi-top version of the Alien Stompers.
