Metallica Vans ‘Kill ‘Em All’ Half Cabs


In the lead up to Metallica’s 30th birthday party celebrating the legendary ‘Kill Em All’ album, Vans have put together a special, limited edition Half Cab as a tribute.

Featuring ‘black to the floor’ black suede and toughened canvas upper, this exclusive pair of Vans goodness should be a must have for all Metallica fans. The sole even hosts the ‘Kill Em All’ album artwork encased in a clear rubber vulcanised sole! It also has the lyrics to classic track ‘Motorbreath’ etched onto the sole too.

When can you get a pair of these on your feet? Well, Slam City will have them in from Monday 22nd October, so if Nothing Else Matters, get some over at
