Here they are: the most ridiculous sneakers to ever appear in a movie. The hi-tops version of Reebok's Alien Stompers were famously worn by Ripley in Aliens, and over the years have become a major collectable. Reebok will be re-releasing them tomorrow as part of Alien Day, along with their mid-top versions. It's definitely cool that these are getting retro'd, but I don't think I could wear these in public unless I were actually planning on stomping some aliens.
