Van Halen's

Toe Jam

10/5/2006 4:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eddie Van Halen's boots were made for trashin'.
Eddie Van Halen
The guitarist hosted an event at LA's House of Petals on Wednesday sporting a pair of boots that were worn down to the bone -- literally.

Eddie's taped up concoction gives new meaning to the term open toe shoes!

UPDATE: TMZ has learned that Eddie's kicks hold extreme sentimental value to the rockstar. The boots were the very first pair of footwear that Eddie was able to purchase on his own. He now wears them to remind himself of where he came from.

you negative f******s who are bashing the "ONE AND ONLY GUITAR GOD" don't appreciate his music or talents and don't know what the hell you are talking about. It's obvious you have no idea about the man's talent or attitude towardshis profession and YOU are so shallow to make such comments. YOU people net to get a life and appreciate the finer qualities of life...

Who cares...about his toes. I saw him on stage at the Kenny Chesney Concert in S. Cal several months ago. Front freakin row and he blew my mind. The man is freakin amazing on guitar..now, not sure what he was on, but it was something to behold.

Looks like he has some sort of toe nail fungus going on there. For chrissake someone take up a collection for the "Buy Eddie Shoes" fund.

I thought the same thing as you, Justin, until the end of the story. He wears those shoes because they are the first pair he could afford on his own, and they remind him of his roots. A sentimental soul - not bad.

That was refreshing. Reading about an entertainer who is actually thankful and humble about where he came from and what he has achieved.

He is talented and grateful He's not spitting on photographers and and comes off as a very gracious guy. . Good for him. I liked him before and now I even like him more.
That was really nice. ( but he could use a pedicure .............lol...... )

He's probably drunk again as usual. That's why Valerie Bertinelli divorced him. He couldn't/wouldn't quit drinking. Only a drunk would wear those so-called shoes.
