Reebok's Alien Stomper: Eat Your Heart Out Marty McFly

On October 21, 2015, back to the future fans were moping around that there were only a few self-fitting Nike's in existence. However on Alien day, Ripley fans can kick the life out of squirming facehuggers with special edition replica ALIEN STOMPER's!

However, unless you were one of a VERY select few to pick these instant classic kicks, you will be paying upwards of $800 on the resale market. But when it comes to crushing a xenomorph's skull into a steel grate, you may not want to be worried about price.

While reselling at $800 now, within a year, sneaker heads and cosplayers alike will happily be paying double the current market price.

Nostalgia is a powerful motivator. It’s easy to tie emotion into the tangible things that were once so important to us. There was never a decade which put more importance on “things” than did the 80’s. There is a trend in pop culture right now to hook audiences with the personal nostalgia we associate with that decade so obsessed with stuff: THE GOLDBERGS, COMIC BOOK MEN, the whole concept of retro gaming, etc. And while I just listed two of my favorite television shows – and you better believe I own the HD-remastings of DUCKTALES and STREET FIGHTER II, the aforementioned pieces of popular culture aren’t ground-breaking new concepts.
