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.

Yes, those boots would make me humble in a hurry, as well. You have to give the man credit--He can ROCK!

How sad. No one knows who Van Halen is anymore. Everyone is so caught up in the Paris Hilton/Lindsay Lohan/Jenn Anniston/Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie saga !

#19 Anon - how sad indeed. I saw Van Hagar about 20 years ago this week and man they ROCKED. Van Hagar has not lived up to the promise they had 20 years ago. What makes it worse is that Eddie isn't in the limelight, people are now concerned about the untalented boy bands and untalented spoiled "pop princesses". It's a shame.

He's Eddie Van Halen!! Who the hell cares about his shoes! This is not fashion, it's Rock n' Freakin' Roll! And Eddie is the crown prince......with a magical guitar. I could listen all day.
