Incoming — Alien Stomper “Final Battle” Pack, July 18

reebok-alien-stomper-final-battle-pack-01

I must be honest: if somebody had told me Reebok were releasing another set of Alien Stompers for Alien Day; but with completely new makeups that were not accurate to the original movie props, I’d have groaned quite loudly. But these… these are just a lot of fun.

Clearly a ridiculous amount of effort has gone into the details here; one pair represents Ripley in her bright yellow Caterpillar P-5000 Work Loader (notice the subtle P5000 debossed on the strap), and the other representing ‘the Alien’ – more officially known as Xenomorph XX121.

So many details I’ll leave you to discover for yourself (although one I want to share is Weyland-Yutani corporation earning itself a new HQ location; that of Canton – the current Reebok global HQ).

Available July 18th (Alien Day) slated at $325, which I believe includes 2 pairs of shoes in the presentation box (but I will need to confirm).

Hit the jump for more photos, and curious teaser video.  —BokOne Read the rest of this entry

DEAL x Instapump Fury “Tai Chi”

http-hypebeast.comimage201704reebok-instapump-fury-deal-tai-chi-2

The Instapump Fury has never shyed away from bold colourways; but with more recent applications of block colours (the 2013 SNS ‘Popsicle’ springs to mind) and asymmetry, a new turf war on ‘most memorable Fury makeup’ seems to be on the cards.

These Yin-Yang inspired Furys by China-based DEAL will certainly be right up there, aided by what looks like a China-only release on 6th May (check out DEAL retailers and Shanghai-based WZK). Rather keen on these. Hit the jump for more images! -BokOne Read the rest of this entry
