With Metallica’s success in touring ticket sales and album soaring following the release of their newest album, the band is continuing to make themselves known in the world of not only music, but fashion as well. In the past, various bands including the likes of Iron Maiden and Slipknot have joined the movement to create shoes that bestowed their name front and center on them.
In a new collaboration with famous skateboard shoe company Vans, Metallica is making news in fashion once again with a new line of footwear that will play well in any shoe collectors collection.
With two new styles coming into fruition, the shoes will be a very simple design with the Sk8-Hi Reissue series, and the classic slip on version. Both styles will include a simple black canvas with the Metallica logo etched on.
These shoes will be available for sale both on the Metallica online store, as well as Vans retailers on Friday, February 16th.
