If you find you can't get enough of the Lars Ulrich's raspy heavy metal vocals, you probably can't wait to slip you feet into a pair of these Metallica Sneakers.

No one really knows why Metallica has decided to put out a line of shoes -- perhaps they're still feeling the pinch from that nasty Napster file sharing service that robbed them of all their would-be riches. Or maybe the band is just looking for new ways to get the word out about their music. Either way, the shoes are a limited edition Vans that are all black and made from heavy-duty canvas and suede -- perfect for skateboarding or stomping around in a mosh pit. Best of all, they feature lyrics on the sides so you'll never forget the words to your favorite Metallica tunes.

Van will be releasing the Metallica Sneakers in three tiers featuring a version for each of the band members. Stats for Heavy Metal Fan Footwear Trending: Older & Chilly
