Metallica and Vans have once again joined forces to release a new range of merchandise which is on general sale from 16 February.
It’s the third time the thrash giants have collaborated with the US manufacturer, with the new collection featuring a selection of 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 and through Metallica’s website from February 16.
