For all you heavy metal fans out there, we have a new release that might be of interest to you! To celebrate the band’s 30th birthday, Metallica have teamed up with footwear giant Vans, who just so happen to be celebrating their own milestone – the 20th anniversary of their iconic half cab silhouette.
Giving the popular silhouette a metal inspired makeover, the special edition Half Cab features a ‘black to the floor’ black suede/toughened canvas upper and all black foxing.
Entitled “KILL ‘EM ALL”, Metallica fans will instantly recognise the name: it’s the same title given to the band’s debut album back in 1983.
The highlight of the design is located on the sole. Not only does the trainer feature lyrics from Metallica’s “Motorbreath” subtlety embossed around the side, but on the underside a splash of colour has also been incorporated – with a transparent rubber section showcasing the “Kill ‘Em All” album artwork!
By making sure the rubber has been toughened, along with the design incorporating the pro skate impactsorb gel sole unit, it means that not only are these iconic trainers stylish and comfortable but they’re also built to last.
Die hard fans will of course bask in the glory of these trainers, and if this is you, you will be glad to know that you can get your hands on a pair next week over at Slam City Skates.
