Vans and Metallica have introduced the limited edition Vans x Metallica 20th Anniversary Half Cab Pro available this month in better skate shops everywhere. In early October, skate shops around the world will receive the latest release in the year-long celebration marking 20 years of the most popular skate shoe of all-time, Steve Caballero’s signature Half Cab. The heavy-duty canvas and suede “black to the floor” Metallica edition of the Half Cab Pro features classic band lyrics embossed in the side, exclusive Vans x Metallica x Steve Caballero labeling and a unique clear rubber sole with Kill ’Em All album artwork showing through.
“To have Metallica, my all-time favorite metal band, collaborating with me on this 20th anniversary Half Cab shoe is an honor and a dream come true,” said Vans’ skate legend Steve Caballero. “I’m very stoked that Vans is working with such a legendary band and the Half Cab is just the beginning.”
The Vans and Metallica partnership will continue in Spring 2013 with two product drops: a four-piece “Passion Project” collection designed by each member of Metallica coming in February and a two-shoe salute to the band’s debut album, Kill ’Em All, delivering in March.
