Vans Unveil Surprise Collab With Heavy Metal Legends Metallica
Fade to black.
Excuse us while we break out our air guitar and vent our undying love for everyone's dad's favorite heavy metal band...
TAKE MY HAND
WE'RE OFF TO NEVER-NEVER LAND
Yes, it is indeed Metallica, and guess what, in one of 2018's most (pleasantly) surprising collabs so far, the multiple-Grammy® Award winning band is teaming up with Vans to release an exclusive collection of footwear, apparel and accessories. Time to shelf that moth-eaten merch, metal kids.
Imbuing Vans' signature coolness with Metallica's lightning-bolt logo, the black and white collection features a deco-stitched full-grain-leather Sk8-Hi Reissue and the Classic Slip-On, as well as a T-shirt and trucker hat.
The collaboration is the perfect response to the dad-inspired trends of the moment, and arrives just over a year after Metallica's new Hardwired...To Self Destruct album.
Next up, join our FIZZY GIRL GANG and become one of our global ambassadors.
