Led Zeppelin Celebrates 50th Anniversary With Vans Collaboration

2019 marks 50 years since the debut of Led Zeppelin’s iconic self-titled debut album, and Vans is paying homage to the impact of that historic introduction with a special capsule collection of footwear and apparel. The London-based rock band’s initial effort changed the world of popular music with generation-spanning hits like “Good Times, Bad Times,” and is widely considered one of the most influential bodies of rock music ever, so Vans has called upon a duo of their most iconic silhouettes in tribute: the Vans Sk8-Hi and Era.

Each shoe pays homage to the band in a unique way. The Era features an all-over print that utilizes each band member’s individual symbol, while the symbols and a large Led Zeppelin text hit appear embossed on the midsole. The Sk8-Hi features the album’s classic cover — the burning Hindenburg Airship — printed across the lateral and medial quarters, while red Led Zeppelin text branding and a red tongue patch add a little colorful contrast. More Zeppelin branding can also be found hidden on the inside of the tongue, and the same printed symbols from the Era also return on the Sk8-Hi’s midsole. Both shoes are packaged in a custom box, and the collection is rounded off by a collaborative trucker hat and long-sleeve tee. Zeppelin fans can expect the complete capsule to release at the retailers listed below and on the Led Zeppelin webstore on February 22nd.
