Metallica love skate culture and in the past have teamed up with Vans for some pretty cool collections. They released limited edition Kill 'Em All designs in 2012 with the album art, and then a shoe with custom art. In 2013, each member of the band designed their own Vans shoe. Five years later, Metallica is teaming up with Vans again for a new collection.
These designs are a much more simpler black background, white Metallica logo design. "The Vans x Metallica collection highlights the newly designed Metallica logo for a heavy metal rendition of Vans classic silhouettes," reads the press release.
These designs look pretty sleek. Here's the official description from Vans.
Dressed in full grain leather upper and tonal deco-stitched Sidestripe, the Sk8-Hi Reissue showcases an etched Metallica logo on the sidewall with a wrapped version on the quarter panels. The Classic Slip-On features an all-over logo print across the vamp and is finished with the same engraved Metallica logo on the sidewalls. A short sleeve t-shirt and trucker hat round out the offering using a Vans x Metallica logo lock-up.
These sneakers go on sale tomorrow at Vans.com and Metallica.com Update: These items are now on sale at the Vans shop. You can grab the slip-on sneakers for $65, hi-tops for $95, both the trucker hat and t-shirt are $26 each. Pick 'em up here.
