April 26th has been dubbed Alien Day and 20th Century Fox is going all out in a 24-hour social media event, complete with prizes and special events. First and foremost, Alien & Aliens will return to theaters in over 20 cities at participating Alamo Drafthouse locations and other partnering theaters. They’re also releasing lots of new Alien merchandise made by companies like NECA, Dark Horse, Medicom, Sideshow, and more.

But one item, in particular, jumped out at me and while they’re going to releasing a lot of cool stuff, I want these so bad I could spit acid.

These Reebok Alien Stomper Sneakers are an exact replica of the Alien High-Top Stompers worn by Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley. They’re also releasing a mid-top version as worn by Lance Henrikson aka Bishop. Both pairs will be available in limited quantities on April 26th at and select Reebok stores worldwide.

You can check out the full press release below for all the details. (I love the giveaways every 42.6 minutes).

Crocs may not be for everyone, but if comfort and Star Wars takes precedent over style, then these should be right up your alley.

Even I might rock those Boba Fett versions.

cinderella flip flops

Will these Cinderella comic flip flops fit? Yes, I’m pretty sure they will—you know, because they come in different sizes. Plus, wearing glass slippers to the beach is just a recipe for disaster.

nike hyperadapt

You may recall that Michael J. Fox was gifted a pair of Nike Mags with power laces for Back to the Future Day. As promised, Nike has begun the process of incorporating the technology into mass produced sneakers with the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0.

Functional simplicity reduces a typical athlete concern, distraction. “When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,” explains Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator, NIKE, Inc., and the project’s technical lead. “Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.”

Daniel and Josh of “Damn, Daniel” fame birthed a meme that exploded overnight. Suddenly, these two Inland Empire teens were famous. That fame, and Daniel’s appreciation for white Vans, led to an appearance on Ellen where Daniel was given a lifetime supply of Vans among other things.

However, it seems that Daniel and Josh aren’t the kind of kids to take fame and exploit it solely for personal gain. The teens partnered with Vans and Loma Linda Children’s Hospital to visit sick kids there and give away a hundred pairs of shoes.

It’s nice to see stuff like this, especially the smiling faces of everyone involved. Check out more pics below.

Since Deadpool seems to lose his limbs pretty frequently, I’d imagine he must go through a whole mess of shoes. He’ll have to be extra careful with these sneakers. They’re his favorite pair, right next to his custom Golden Girls-themed kicks.

The shoes feature Deadpool comic art, and they’re currently available in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes.

light up unicorn slippers 4

Unicorns are cool. Unicorn slippers are super cool. Unicorn slippers that light up? Awesome.

These unicorn slippers are made of cotton and polyester and they’re one size fits most up to a women’s size 12. The batteries last 4 – 6 months unless you wear them all the time which, let’s face it, you totally would do.
