WhoÂ didn’t grow up shrieking along to the raging sounds of Metallica during their angst ridden years? Before the dawn of MP3s teenager boys (and girls) bought every album or bootleg cassette to head bang to in their rooms. The band’s posters hung from walls and patches were adhered to school bags like a badge of brotherhood and belonging. And next to ‘StairwayÂ To Heaven’, if you had the good fortune to pickÂ up a guitar, you’d want to masterÂ a few key chords fromÂ ‘Nothing Else Matters’ or ‘Fade To Black’. Now you can show your love for Metallica with Converse’s new Fall 2009 All Star Chucks.
Alongside AC/DC, Converse’s Metallica collab is forms part of the shoe brand’s AW09 music inspired line. High-tops serve as the perfect backdrop for some of the most classic graphics and logos in music history. Ride The Lightning album graphics look simple and clean with appliquÃ© embossed patch graphics on the classic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker. Subtle details like logo tongue patches and midsole graphics take the band’s iconography a step beyond.
Available in High Top and Oxford versions in black, black/multi, white/black, black/white and cobblestone print canvas colourways, get your Metallica Chuck Taylor All Star shoes at your nearest Converse store.
