Sure, Alien Day may have come and gone back in April but this year still marks the 30th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s iconic sci-fi epic, Aliens. Always one to create its own interpretation of iconic footwear silhouettes, Japanese brand Hender Scheme has decided to produce an inspired and elevated take of the Reebok Alien Stompers worn by the movie’s main character, Ellen Ripley. These upscale versions of the combat-ready shoes are made with luxurious leather and designed with a pared down look – a signature calling card for the artisanal label. Additionally, the clean and deconstructed appearance of this model is perfect for developing a unique patina through age and numerous wears. Also named the Manual Industrial Products 06, this pair is a beautiful option for those looking to add character to their sneaker lineup.

The cinema-inspired kicks are available now at END for $969 USD—here’s hoping they didn’t forget to stock women’s sizes like Reebok did.
