Led Zeppelin are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their iconic self titled album by teaming up with Vans for a new footwear line.

The rockers announced the release of the exciting new item via Twitter, sharing a collage featuring two versions of the shoes. The low tops include the symbols from their fourth record, Led Zeppelin IV, while the high tops display the image of their debut release, featuring the 1937 Hindenburg disaster. Both styles have a black base with white and red writing.

Included in the social media slideshow are a glimpse of t-shirts and hats featuring similar designs.

Several notable musicians, including Pearl Jam, Kiss, Slayer, Motorhead and Iron Maiden, have teamed with Vans in recent years, and a release inspired by David Bowie is also expected to drop later this year (19).

The Led Zep pieces will be available from 22 February (19).

This isn’t the first piece of merchandise Robert Plant and his bandmates have inspired to commemorate the anniversary. Last month (Jan19), they joined forces with the outerwear brand Burton to release a limited-edition Misty Mountain Hop snowboard, also adorned with imagery from the 1969 release. They also released a special t-shirt featuring an artful logo accompanied by the number 50, which they offered through their official online store.

In October (18), the band marked the release of their first LP by releasing the book Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, which features a collection of rare images selected by the group.
