Metallica Launch Their Own Shoes? Lame.

Metallica are launching their own pair of Vans.  Really? At least Metallica‘s Robert Trujillo is excited:

“I’ve been wearing Vans on stage my whole freakin’ career (and way before that!). Whether I’m walking the streets of Venice or San Francisco, Vans provides the funk in my stride!”

The release, as to appeal to ‘diehard’ Metallica fans, celebrates Kill ‘Em All. Details over at: http://www.vans.com/microsites/halfcab – here’s an excerpt from the press release:

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.
