Vans has struck another power chord collab with heavy metal icons Metallica. The exclusive Vans x Metallica collection of footwear, apparel and accessories 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, debuted at No. 1 around the world, selling over 800,000 copies in its first week and garnering the band Grammy nominations for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album.
