The partnership is celebrating the 50th anniversaries of the band's 'Black Sabbath' and 'Paranoid' albums
Black Sabbath have partnered with Dr. Martens for a new shoe collection to celebrate 50 years since the release of their first two albums.
Both ‘Black Sabbath’ and ‘Paranoid’ have reached the half-century mark this year, with the latter celebrating 50 years since its release earlier this month.
Those half-century celebrations will now continue into October in the form of a new collaboration with Dr. Martens, with the latter keen to also shine a spotlight on Keith McMillan’s “hard-hitting artwork” for the cover of both records.
Two new pairs of shoes are being released for the first collection, with the eight-eyelet high-top pair being decked out in the artwork for ‘Black Sabbath’. A three-eyelet pair represents ‘Paranoid’, with each black leather shoe featuring the ‘War Pigs’ soldier emblazoned on the outside of the boot near the ankle.
The Black Sabbath x Dr. Martens collection will go on sale on Thursday (October 1), and you can find more about the collaboration here.
The heavy metal pioneers brought their career to a close in 2017 with a string of homecoming shows in Birmingham, and there has been talk of the group potentially reuniting ever since.
