Vans, the leading youth culture brand and icon of creative expression, joins forces with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and multiple-Grammy® Award winning band Metallica, to release an exclusive collection of footwear, apparel and accessories.
The latest installment from the long-time Vans x Metallica partnership marks the third collaboration between the storied brand and band.
The Vans x Metallica collection highlights the newly designed Metallica logo for a heavy metal rendition of Vans classic silhouettes. 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.
Metallica's most recent album, Hardwired...To Self Destruct, was released on November 18, 2016 on Metallica's own Blackened Recordings record label and debuted at No. 1 around the world, selling over 800,000 copies worldwide in its first week and garnering the band Grammy® nominations for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album.
The Vans x Metallica collection will be available to shop in Vans retail stores and online at Vans.eu and through the bands official website, Metallica.com beginning February 16th.
