EVH 1978 Hi Tops

Eddie Van Halen Introduces 1978 High Tops Commemorating Van Halen’s Iconic Debut Album

The Eddie Van Halen store has released the 1978 High Top commemorative shoe, honoring the occasion of Eddie’s groundbreaking debut to the world stage with the release of the first Van Halen album, some 40 years ago. Adding to the growing collection of footwear offered by the EVH™ brand, the 1978 High Tops are a black and white classic high-top sneaker. The outer side features a live photo of Eddie Van Halen playing guitar on the first world tour, and the inner side of the shoe has 1978 prominently displayed in a circular badge. The Eddie Van Halen logo appears on both the tongue of the shoe and on the back sole, and the back panel features his signature white with black striped pattern.  You can pick up a pair of the 1978 High Tops and more EVH swag at: EddieVanHalenStore.com

Request of the Week


"Love Has Taken Its Toll"

Dee, Saraya wasn't too popular, but Love Has Taken Its Toll shows the band could let loose a jammin' melody, quicker than a frong can bump is turd-chopper.  If they would have surfaced 'round three years earlier, or three years later, they would have been Chart Toppers, consistently.  Thanks, Dee, the show always ends too quick, but I soak up all that I can.
