    Default EVH sneakers

    Main question, I just wanted to make sure but I want some that are the same size as UK 9 Converse. What size EVH do I want? (after some working out it seems to be 10.5)

    Also, anyone got some of the hi-tops yet? Any good?

    thanks,
    tim

    not that I care about fashion in general, but if I wore a pair of those things, at my age, it truly would look like I was stuck in 1984

    I was gonna wear mine for the first time this weekend and thought better of it. I don't want someone asking me about them and the conversation ending with "Ed's a fucking piece of shit, though."

    Actually, I'm just embarrassed by and for him more than anything.

    Fucking asshole.

    Agreed. I have had to explain a few things myself. Auditioned a bass player last week and he was intrested in my Wolfie Standard. He said I must have been a big fan of ED. "Ah....no,not really" to which I received a confused look?

    when i used to play through my 5150 id get dudes coming up asking me all kinds of vh related questions.

    Im excited to get my pair of shoes!

    Can't wait for people to notice them and ask me about them.

    Think they will be a step up from my old pair.

    I can't imagine wearing these and not feeling extremely alienated in a typical environment.

    the wife got me a pair for x-mas. I got the r/b/w low tops. I wore them at North Park mall for like 3 hrs. Never got a weird look or questions about them, but my feet were killing me when I got back home. they are not easy on the feet.

    I can't imagine wearing them anywhere and feeling alienated. They are simply cool shoes. If you feel alienated wearing the EVH shoes, it is probably not because of the shoes.

    Sounds like you don't have the right size. If you wear your perfect size, the shoes should feel as comfortable as any other shoe.

    Hey, if anyone bought a pair and needs to exchange them for a different size, just email me. You can exchange them as long as they are still in new, unworn condition.

    As for my own experience wearing them - as expected, I get complements when I wear them to concerts. But what wasn't expected is - when I wear them around town, I get people saying they are cool that have no idea that they are VH shoes. They just like the look of 'em. And I get the feeling that most people that like them don't even get the VH connection. Funny.

    Yes because calling a poster an asshole and a dick is totally appropriate and called for, right?
