Metallica join forces with Vans for new range of merchandise

Metallica and Vans

Metallica and Vans have once again joined forces to release a new range of merchandise.

It’s the third time the thrash giants have collaborated with the US manufacturer, with the new collection featuring footwear, apparel and accessories.

A statement on the partnership reads: “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.”

The collection will be available in Vans retail stores, online (opens in new tab) and through Metallica’s website from tomorrow (February 16). See some of the product shots below.
