I’m seeing mixed info about tomorrows release of the Alien Stompers, with some reports (Sneaker Freaker) suggesting there will be just 100 of the irradescent box packaging -shown above- released, but I’m unclear whether that will just be for the Mids (as shown) or the High-Tops.
But I am hearing reports that Reebok Classics in Harajuku Tokyo will have limited availability, which is a positive after seeing the shoes only pre-listed on European Reebok sites, and US boutiques.
Additionally I’m noticing that some stores may have been requested not to divulge quantities of their Stomper’ stock, although the plus side to this is there maybe a wider global spread of the stock than originally thought. But I believe the High-Top is still running at just 426 pairs globally, with the Mid at 1,986.
Apologies I can’t offer further clarity at this stage. —BokOne
As a continued build-up to the release of these long-sought-after Reeboks, and to clarify one of my recent posts about release quantities – check out the official announcement via Reebok PR. If you’re really needing those high-tops, you’re going to have to move fast. Hit the
ground jump, soldier. -BokOne Read the rest of this entry
Thought these curio’s would be worth posting, as sent to Retroboks’ Facebook page by Aamon in the US. Read on for more pics. Read the rest of this entry
A little re-highlighting of one of Retroboks‘ most extensive Field-Guides (although to be honest they’re all pretty extensive). And probably the only place on the internet featuring 4 decades of Alien Stomper-porn. —BokOne
Some superb retro illustrations of the legendary LX8500, BB6600, ACT600 and Freestyle Low (courtesy of DefyNewYork) showing their requirements for their respective sports. I think we’re all looking squarely at Reebok to (properly) retro the LX8500 about now – jump through to see all images. ~BokOne
