Back in the day, if you wanted to show your support for a band, you would have to buy a T-shirt. Lately, the best way to become a walking billboard for your favorite band is, well, by walking. Iron Maiden, Slayer and Mastodon are among those that have worked with Vans to come up with their own sneaker designs. Now Dimmu Borgir is joining the party. Vans’ Matt Shipman has designed a pair of sneakers featuring Dimmu Borgir are, and the sole pair (no pun intended) will be auctioned off at the San Diego Comic Con. Anyone purchasing Nuclear Blast product at booth #116 during the Comic Con from July 22-26th will be entered to win the one-of-a-kind kicks.
“Finally we have a real special treat available for the true Dimmu fan,” Dimmu’s Silenoz commented. “What other company in the world other than Vans could possible do a Dimmu Borgir show justice? Wear it proud!”
Just like a black metal band to make a shoe so kvlt that there’s only one pair. Whoever wins the only pair of Dimmu Vans should be the most elitist trOO person ever, but it’ll probably be some douche in a Captain America shirt that lives in a basement.
