Vans Announce Metallica Skate Shoes
Shoes were just shoes until today.

Metallica have teamed up with Vans for a special limited edition run of shoes to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album "Kill 'Em All" - and they look pretty sweet.

Vans say the special pack, which is available in October, will include two pairs of shoes. One is a slip on, the other a skate shoe, as far as we can tell. Both shoes will be coloured in red, white and black and will include the hand and hammer design from the original album artwork.

"Kill 'Em All" was released in 1983 and proved to be one of the most authentic thrash metal records of all time. It featured heavily in their new and ambitious live show where props from their early tours appear in the new stage show.

Metal Hammer highlight an interview from a few years back where the band talk through their memories of the debut album, which you can see in the player below the images.

Check out the skate shoes here (images via Blacklist). Would you buy them?
