2011 has seen a marked increase in animal print sneaker designs, and especially over the last month-plus, we’ve seen this trend distilled down to where one particular motif now stands out above the rest. The combination of black leather and leopard spots has been done on a couple of Japanese stores’ collaborations with Puma, Big Seans’ upcoming adidas Originals Superstar shelltoes that match a pair of Forums released in early October, and now this new atmos x Reebok Alien Stomper joins the list. Compared to the Toyko retailer’s Puma Clydes, these offer a lighter range of brown tones, and this model’s laceless dual-strapped design is sure to attract a bunch of attention, even compared to the other designs with which we categorized them. Check them out in more images after the jump and stick with Sneaker News in case they happen to make it stateside.
