Sportswear label Reebok introduces the new Alien Fighter Bishop sneakers to honor Ridley Scott's classic film 'Alien.' It turns 40 years old this May and the label reworks its signature 'Alien Stomper' to commemorate the classic movie. The Alien Stomper was work by Bishop in the movie, the U.S.S. Sulaco executive officer. It boasts a mid-cut structure and goes towards a more contemporary angle, spotlighting the Reebok BB 5600.

The original laces are replaced with velcro straps and it also features an ankle wrap. The color palette nods to retro themes, showcasing hits of dark gray, red, and white. There are also branding details on the tongue made from neoprene, the heel, and the ankle strap. To accompany the sneakers are special tags, a 'Stomping Guide,' and custom dustbags.
