Vans has created a limited-edition shoe for Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, which is now available for purchase HERE.

The Corey Taylor shoe is being sold as part of the 21st Century Leaders artwork project to benefit the Whatever It Takes charity. The concept is simple: Whatever It Takes gathers artworks from leaders in all fields; royalty, film, music, Nobel Peace Prize laureates, sports, literature etc. Each ambassador donates a symbol of hope, a self-portrait and a message of hope for the future. These artworks are used to create Whatever It Takes products: "merchandise with a meaning." From wristbands to clothing, from tableware to cosmetics and footwear, each product is ethically produced and sold to raise funds for charitable causes chosen by each contributing leader.

Stone Sour is preparing to release a special edition of their current hit album, Come What(ever) May, on June 26. The 2-disc digipak will feature six previously unheard outtakes from the album's sessions, official videos, and a full concert performance taped in Russia - click HERE for complete details.

I'd like to put my limited edition shoe up his limited edition ass.

Only kidding. Actually, it's kinda cool to see rock stars help out other people. Even if it's Mr. Despair, Corey Taylor.
