Foo Fighters celebrates 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut with a special edition of VANS Sk8-Hi!
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, 12-time Grammy award winners American rock band Foo Fighters and the original action sports brand and global icon of creative expression VANS, join forces to drop a special, limited-edition of the legendary boots Sk8-Hi.
The 1995 release of self-titled debut record Foo Fighters was the first major step in the ascent of Dave Grohl (vocals/guitar), Taylor Hawkins (drums), Nate Mendel (bass), Chris Shiflett (guitar), Pat Smear (guitar) and Rami Jaffee (keybords) to their esteemed position as the last great American stadium rock band.
VANS have been a go-to favorite throughout the Foo Fighters’ career, worn from the studio to stages all around the world. A high rotation style among its members, the band chose the VANS Classic Sk8-Hi for its timeless form, maintaining the iconic appearance of the silhouette and enhancing it with Foo Fighters’ signature emblem.
The Sk8-Hi features black uppers with red contrast stitching, the Foo Fighters’ double F logo in white on the medial and lateral sides, and “Foo” and “Fighters” in red on the heel. A 25th anniversary edition embroidery tag is found on the tongue, and the Sk8-Hi’s traditional sidestripe is only hinted at, with its shape outlined in contrast stitching – a nod to Foo Fighters’ stripped-down musician style.
The black, white and red details naturally lend to a perfect collaboration for both VANS and Foo Fighters. This special, limited-edition of VANS / FF Sk8-Hi will come on January 29th, just a days ahead of the February 5th release of the bands 10th full-length, Medicine at Midnight (available to pre-order here).
