If you visited us at Orion in June or have been watching the skate magazines, you know that we are super psyched to be working with Vans to create some really cool Metalli-shoes with the first one hitting the streets yesterday.
On deck now is the limited edition Vans x Metallica 20th Anniversary Half Cab Pro, part of a year long celebration of the 20th anniversary of our friend Steve Caballero's signature shoe with touches of Kill 'Em All art and lyrics on the black classic shoe. You can pick 'em up in skate shops or here, at the Metallica.com Store.
In 2013 look for a collection of four shoes, each one designed by a band member and released first to Met Club members in January. Later down the road in March, we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Kill 'Em All with two new shoes, the classic Vans slip-on and the SK8-Hi, each covered with the KEA album graphics.
We look forward to many more projects down the road with Vans . . . as Robert says "I've been wearing Vans on stage my whole freakin' career (and way before that!). Whether I'm walking the streets of Venice or San Francisco, Vans provides the funk in my stride!"
