We couldn’t think of a better music and fashion collab if we triedVans and Iron Maiden (yes, as in the heavy metal band) have teamed up once again to create some badass sneakers based off their The Number of the Beast album from 1982. Whoaaa. This is the fifth collab between Iron Maiden and Vans—the other projects included the albums Killers in 2007, Piece of Mind in 2007, Powerslave in 2008, and Trooper in 2008. The kicks, which come in the classic Vans slip-on style and Sk8-Hi (seen above), are totally decked out in art straight from the album cover. The iconic Iron Maiden mascot (Eddie) is depicted using satan like puppet along the side of the sneaks. On the sole, you can see the name of the album etched into the side in red ink, and there’s also an embroidered Iron Maiden logo on the heel. AWESOME.

The slip-ons are equally as killer with the album artwork along the top of the shoe and embroidery along the back. These bad boys cost $60, while the high-tops come in at $70. Both shoes are available to purchase online right this second (!!!) or you can find them at a retailer near you. Welp, we know what we’re adding to our Christmas lists. m/ Are you excited for Iron Maiden’s latest Vans collab? Let us know in the comments below!
