All the sneaker companies are going crazy trying to compete with one another to make the coolest, most limited-edition, hippest artist collaboration, niche market sneakers. You practically can't walk down Broadway without tripping over a pair of rainbow hued Reebok Freestyles, and Adidas and Nike are probably spending more than the GDP of some countries trying to outdo one another generating buzz around their new styles and re-releases of classic & vintage styles. And now the weird little brother of sneaker companies - Vans - is joining the game. We're actually kind of excited about their line of sneakers in tribute to metal and punk bands - including Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, and Motorhead. Style-wise, our favorites are the Iron Maiden hi-tops, but music-wise we prefer Motorhead. But it kind of begs the question - how many models are we going to see wearing sneakers in tribute to bands they have most likely never heard? --ALISON COOL
