Combine rock n’ roll legends and a beloved skate board company and the outcome unleashes the Vans x Metallica mid-sole sneaker. For Metallica’s 30th anniversary of its iconic album 'Kill ‘Em All,' Vans extended the offer to produce limited-edition kicks titled the name of the album. The all-black sneaker comes in suede with special tags on the side panel and tongue. Special lyrics line the rim of the heel with a red tagged "Kill ‘Em All" on the inner shoe.

This shoe is exclusively sold at Atlas stores across the globe. This item is perfect for the rock star lover or the skater with a rock n’ roll vibe. The sneakers feature a beige and red tie-dye sole which gives the black a special surprise. Stats for Heavy Metal-Inspired Sneakers Trending: Older & Warm
