The Fab Four will have their own line of Vans sneakers, beginning on March 1. We’re sure that’s always been the band’s goal.

The skateboard shoe and lifestyle company will offer four models, all part of Vans’ “classic” series: a SK8-HI, an Authentic, a Slip-On and an Era. An iconic scene or illustration from The Beatles’ 1968 movie, “The Yellow Submarine,” drapes each shoe, and each pair of sneakers goes for between $65 and $75–not bad if you’re a Beatles aficionado looking for kicks (cc: Mac Miller).

This isn’t Vans’ first collaboration with a well-known band. The company partnered with Bay Area thrash gods Metallica for a collection last spring that honored Metallica’s debut studio album, Kill ‘Em All.

As for The Beatles (or, we suppose, simply Paul and Ringo), you can catch a two-hour special dedicated to their 50-year anniversary of arriving in America on Feb. 9, exactly 50 years to the day, date and time of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles groundbreaking first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. CBS will present “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles” which will feature today’s top artists covering songs performed by the Fab Four.

The footwear capsule drops March 1, 2014 but visit for news and updates on the collection’s release.
