Reebok made the announcement last month that they would be releasing Alien Stompers, the shoes worn by Sigourney Weaver in the 80s classic Aliens. We now have more photos and details on the release of these boots. Scroll down to view them and read the Note section below.
ALIEN DAY is on Tuesday, April 26 (the date is in reference to the planet LV-426 from the film) and this year is the 30th Anniversary of Aliens, which was released on July 18, 1986.
Reebok will be releasing 1,986 pairs of the retro mid-cut form Alien Stomper Mid, and 426 limited edition pairs of the original high-tops Alien Stomper High. The high-top Stompers were worn by Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and the mid-top Stompers were worn by the android Bishop (Lance Henriksen).
Both shoes will be available for $174.99 at reebok.com and at select retailers around the world on April 26.
Though some stores may end up selling them early on, the shoes will officially go up for sale on the website reebok.com at 9:00 AM PST, 12:00 PM (Noon) EST, 5:00 PM UK.
NOTE: Make sure you are already registered on the US site with your shipping address details.
Here is the direct product page for the high-tops.The site won't ship outside US, so international fans need to have a US address or have them shipped to a US friend.
As confirmed below, the high-tops are impossible to get due to the extreme low quantity being allocated for the US site. So you are better off trying for the mid-tops instead.
They are already listed on some international sites. Check the following links:

UPDATE: Well US fans shouldn't even bother to order a pair, as there will be only 36 pairs of the high-tops on the US website. It's quite the joke.

The checkout button on the site isn't currently working. Here is an update from the Reebok Twitter account.
We are working to resolve the checkout issues with #AlienStomper. They are not sold out. Bare with us please!— Reebok Classic (@ReebokClassics) April 26, 2016
Never mind on what I said about buying the mid-tops. They are not being sold in the US. Check the tweet below. (Thanks to Nathan in the comments for bringing this to our attention).
Here is the cast photo where you can see Ripley and Bishop wearing the Reebok shoes.
