Metallica vs Vans collab shoes

Skateboards and metal are certainly the flavour of the 80’s but the fad still rolls and the classics still appeal to many. This week Metallica’s members have all designed and released a collab shoe on Vans following their classic ‘Kill ‘Em All’ half cab last year, again in celebration of their milestone sussecc of their epic debut album.

Bass player Robert Trujillo chose to add his own take on the Escuela shoe with an Aztec design, James Hetfield picked a Sk8-Hi and added his own skull and crossbones, drummer Lars Ulrich has an Era Laceless with added twill/diamond pattern from his snare drum, and guitarist Kirk Hammett has rolled out a hemp based Slip-On that features a Ouija guitar pick in the heel.

These should be available this month.

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 www.slamcity.com
