Metallica’s ‘Black Album’ 30th Anniversary Celebration Now Includes Its Own Shoe

Metallica is pulling out all the stops to mark the 30th anniversary of The Black Album.  We’re getting box sets, tribute albums, whiskey… and now shoes.

The band has teamed up with Vans for the ‘Vans x Metallica’ collection, featuring custom artwork by Pushead – the artist whose work has appeared on Metallica album covers, t-shirts, and posters.

The shoes go on sale July 25th exclusively on the Vans Family website.

What’s your favorite piece of rock’n’roll merch?  Is Metallica overdoing the Black Album hype?
