Foo Fighters announce Vans collaboration in honor of band’s 25th anniversary

While Foo Fighters‘ 25th anniversary Van Tour was canceled, Dave Grohl and company have announced the next closest thing: a collaboration with Vans.

The “Everlong” rockers have teamed up with the famed footwear company to launch their own signature Foo Fighters shoe. The Vans x Foo Fighters Sk8-Hi comes in black, and features the word “Foo” on the back of the left foot and “Fighters” on the back of the right, and the band’s “FF” logo on either side.

According to a tweet from Vans, the sneaker is “coming soon.”

The Van Tour, by the way, didn’t actually have anything to do with Vans — it was set to revisit the stops the Foos made on their first tour back in 1995, back when they traveled by van. That run, along with all of the other Foo Fighters 2020 touring plans, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Foo Fighters will release a new album, Medicine at Midnight, on February 5.
