No tour. No Album. Soothe your sadness in these stylish EVH 1978 inspired Converse high tops.
Let's face it, The Van Halen brothers don't seem interested in extending their legacy. Eddie releases a signature guitar now and then. They released "A Different Kind Of Truth" in 2012 and reissued their first few albums n 2015 along with a live recording. However, there never seems to be any ongoing momentum.

I"m thankful for each morsel, but each little bit makes me want more. Seeing some of their recent live appearances, Eddie looks stoked to be on stage. So, anyway... You can snag a pair of Eddie Van Halen Converse high tops from the EVH store.
