Metallica, masters of merchandising and business in the metal world, have just released a collaborative shirt and skate deck with Dogtown Skateboards. Both are available through the Metallica website. It should be noted that the skateboard, while costing $140, is only the board deck and nothing else.
Here's a little more information on the collaboration.
Inspired by ‘80s Dogtown & Metallica styles, the board shape and airbrush paint were designed by Jim “Red Dog” Muir and produced by Professor Schmitt at PS STIX. The graphic art was perfectly blended by Sean Cliver. The graphic was silk screened the old-fashioned way by Chicken at Screaming Squeegees.
