Got some pretty wicked news.. two of the most legendary forces of all time will be collaborating with Steve Caballero to celebrate his signature half cab being the most popular skate shoe of all time.
This October, skate shops all over the world will receive their shipments of the Vans x Metallica 20th Anniversary Half Cab Pro. If you aren't sure which pair I'm referring to, Half Cabs are the Vans with the heavy duty canvas that just seems to last longer, the mid tops that offer the perfect amount of give and support, the padded tongue that has just the right amount of cushioning and not to mention the classic waffle sole. No surprise that they're the most popular shoe at the park.
The Metallica edition of the half cab will feature band lyrics embossed on the side as well as exclusive Vans x Metallica x Caballero labelling and a unique clear rubber sole with album cover artwork showing through. Find out where to find a pair of your own here.
The Vans and Metallica partnership will continue through Spring 2013. A four piece clothing collection called "Passion Project" will be released in February, each piece is designed by a member of the band, as well as another two pairs of shoes saluting the bands Debut Album, Kill 'Em All, which will be out in March.
In the words of Metallica "You know our fans are insane, We are gonna blow this place away"
