Metallica - Metallica Team Up With Vans For Skate Shoe Line

Heavy rockers Metallica have teamed up with bosses at skateboard attire firm Vans to create a new line of footwear.

Each member of the band will create a new Passion Project skate shoe to mark the joint anniversary of the firm and the band.

The Vans x Metallica 20th Anniversary Half Cab Pro shoe will be available next year (13).

Announcing the collaboration, bassist Rob Trujillo says, "I've been wearing Vans on stage my whole freakin' career... Whether I'm walking the streets of Venice (California) or San Francisco, Vans provides the funk in my stride!"

Meanwhile Vans boss and skateboard legend Steve Caballero is thrilled to have Metallica on board: "To have Metallica, my all-time favourite metal band, collaborating with me on this 20th anniversary Half Cab shoe is an honour and a dream come true.

"I'm very stoked that Vans is working with such a legendary band and the Half Cab is just the beginning."
