After its recent release of a premium line of woven checkerboard slip-ons, Vans has unveiled its latest collaboration with storied rock n’ roll band Led Zeppelin. The California-based brand is set to drop a limited-edition capsule collection this month, which will pay homage to the English group’s 50th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.

Within the collection is a four-piece mix of apparel and footwear, with each style incorporating a tie to notable Led Zeppelin imagery. The long-sleeved T-shirt comes in all-black and features a focal back-graphic of the band’s eponymous album cover, which depicts Germany’s crashing Hindenburg airship. On the front of the shirt, Vans branding is located underneath of the band members’ four respective emblems, which were originally created to represent the group’s fourth and untitled studio album (commercially referred to as Led Zeppelin IV).

Moving into footwear, Vans has developed two editions in honor of the musicians. Its Sk8-Hi silhouette takes on a suede and canvas upper while Led Zeppelin’s original album artwork is plastered in metallic silver along the quarter panel. In addition, the style features a black leather Sidestripe, tonal laces and a tonal alphabet-printed sidewall. Meanwhile, the label’s Era sneaker features a premium leather construction with a contrasting white design that highlights each unique IV badge. The same icons are also woven into the internal tongue on both versions and will be sold with a custom shoebox.

Wrapping everything up is an adjustable trucker hat. Like the tee, the cap comes in black and takes on the same debut album picture.

The Vans x Led Zeppelin collection will hit select Vans stores and wholesale partners, Vans.com and Led Zeppelin official website on Friday, February 22.

In the meantime, check out the label’s first shoe with Skate Team member Elijah Berle.
