Reebok Alien Stompers, the shoes worn by Sigourney Weaver in the 1980s classic Aliens, are coming back to planet Earth.

As part of Alien Day, which is intended to be akin to Back to the Future Day and Star Wars’ May the 4th, Fox is unveiling a slew of Alien-related merchandise coinciding with April 26. (The date is connected to the planet known as LV-426, which is key to Alien lore.)

Reebok is releasing an exact replica of the Alien high-top Stompers worn by Weaver as Ellen RipleyAlso being released is the mid-top version worn by Lance Henriksen as the android Bishop. The movie sneakers will be available beginning April 26 at Reebok.com and select Reebok stores worldwide.

The Stompers hold a unique place in the movies. The shoes were made by the company specifically for the James Cameron film and became, along with Back to the Future’s Nike Air Mag, some of cinema’s most famous footwear.

Reebok released a version of the shoe a year after the movie opened, but only for a limited time. The shoes have enjoyed a revival in recent years, with cosplayers making their own versions and certain shops creating custom versions.

Most iterations were not the high-top model but the mid-top, making the new shoes faithful to what was seen onscreen.

As part of Alien Day, certain Alamo theater locations are showing a double feature of Alien and Aliens, and Amazon’s Audible will be release a brand-new audio drama, Alien: Out of the Shadows, starring Rutger Hauer, the '80s actor best known for starring in Blade Runner. Among other activities planned is an online trivia challenge in which movie fans can win prizes every 42.6 minutes on Twitter.

According to source, the shoes will be available on Reebok.com next month.
