Great news for rock fans; two iconic brands are teaming up for a special collaboration fit for the Rock Hall of Fame. Every rocker’s favourite sneaker, Vans has announced a collaboration with Led Zeppelin which will see the brand drop a limited-edition collection of footwear and apparel this month, to mark the 50th anniversary of the British band’s self-titled debut album. The ultimate collection for rock ‘n roll fans, the Vans X Led Zeppelin collection is sure to become iconic.
Released in January 1969, Led Zeppelin was produced by Jimmy Page, and although it wasn’t an immediate hit, the nine-track LP would go on to become a classic rock album lauded by both fans and critics alike. Now, 50 years later the album is being celebrated by one of the most loved rock brands of our time, Vans. Both Vans and Led Zeppelin were seen as game-changers in their respective industries, making this collaboration even more fitting.
Showcasing original album artwork, the four-piece Vans X Led Zeppelin collection offers fans a four-piece capsule including two pairs of limited-edition sneakers, along with an album art-inspired T-shirt and an adjustable trucker hat. On the sneaker front, the classic Vans Era sneakers are re-imagined with the band members’ individual logos and motifs stamped on the black leather upper, while the Sk8-Hi features Zeppelin album art printed along the side panels of suede and leather high-tops. The shoe also features “hidden” band symbols on the woven label of the shoe’s tongue. Both pairs of shoes come with a custom Vans x Led Zeppelin shoebox.
