Slayer's Album Inspires Sneakers
Who knew that when Slayer's legendary album Reign In Blood was released that it would go on to inspire a pair of shoes? That's right, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of that thrash classic, Nike SB, in collaboration with Brooklyn Projects, is releasing official Slayer sneakers. The Reign in Blood Dunk shoes will be available starting June 6 in select skate shops, according to BraveWords.com. Meanwhile, Slayer are in the midst of a European tour and have a run of Big Four dates scheduled for summer. Right now, the metal band are without guitarist Jeff Hanneman (who's recovering from an infection thought to be caused by a spider bite), and have tapped Exodus' Gary Holt to fill in. Holt will leave Slayer after the April 4 show, and Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O'Brien will take over from there. Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com.
