Sad but Shoe: Metallica announces 'Black Album'-themed Vans collaboration

Metallica's 30th anniversary Black Album celebration will include a collaboration with Vans.

The famed footwear company is launching a new collaboration with the metal legends inspired by the famed "Sad but True" design by artist Pushead. The shoe will come in two styles: the Sk8-Hi, and the Classic Slip-On.

You can order a pair of your own starting July 26 at noon ET. For more info, visit Metallica.com.

Metallica has worked with Vans several times in the past on signature designs, and in 2016, the band performed at the House of Vans venue in London.

Meanwhile, Metallica is releasing a 30th anniversary Black Album deluxe reissue, as well as the 53-track all-star The Metallica Blacklist tribute compilation, on September 10.
