A three-and-a-half-minute clip in which new Vans

created for Vans
In a continuing creative partnership, Vans
have introduced a four-piece signature collection designed by each band member delivering to stores in February. Each METALLICA
member — James Hetfield
, Lars Ulrich
, Kirk Hammett
and Robert Trujillo
— had free rein to choose any iconic Vans
shoe style and make it their own while drawing from their favorite influences in the worlds of music, action sports and art to create Vans
shoes reflecting their personal style.
For his Vans
shoe (see photo below), Ulrich updated the Era Laceless design with brushed twill materials and a print taken from the diamond plate pattern on his snare drum. He also added a Dirty Donny character on the inside heel of the shoe.
The shoe is available at the Metallica x Vans
In March, METALLICA
will introduce the "Kill 'Em All"
-themed shoes featuring the classic Slip-On and Sk8-Hi styles, each emblazoned with artwork commemorating the album's 30th anniversary.
