We adjusted the midsole height for better feeling and control

The build quality of the shoes has been increased over previous versions

The inner sole can still be removed, but due to some slipping they come stock tacked in place

    The One

    The search for the perfect drumming shoe is over!

    I waited a very long time to write a review for these to ensure I truly got the most out of these shoes and have enough experience to speak about them honestly. I was a bit skeptical of these at first but, after four years of practicing and performing exclusively in The Vratim Drum Shoe, I can 100% without a doubt say this is the one for me. Playing drums in anything else just feels...wrong.

    These are the perfect weight for my foot. Good amount of traction but you can still slide with them. Very "Flat" in the sole so it feels like there is little in the way between your foot and the pedals, yet, still absorbs shock. Holds up to an insane amount of abuse; still running with the OG pair from 4 years ago and haven't even washed them.

    Believe the hype on these and grab a pair. Looks cool and feels great on the pedals.

    Drum Shoe II

    Posted by Severiano Rivera on 28th Jan 2020

    The most comfortable shoes I have purchased in a while, and made with such obvious quality and attention. And mind you, I AM NOT A DRUMMER, THATS HOW GOOD THESE SHOES ARE!
    And special thanks to Thomas from Vratim for taking such good care of me after I purchased the wrong size initially and needed to exchange them. He made the whole process super easy and his communication should be the standard on how customer service is graded.
    Kudos to Thomas and the Vratim team \m/

    Vratim Drum Shoes - Black 2.0

    Posted by Frankie Mish on 17th Dec 2019

    These shoes are absolutely incredible. I used to drum barefoot because I hated heavy shoes, and I would wear down the sole with how often I play. After having Vratim recommended to me by a friend, and trying his pair, I can't stop using them. Even when I practice casually there's a noticeable difference with and without the shoes.

    The pros:
    Stable, firm, and grippy soles to help your foot stay in place on your pedal, but light enough so you can easily pick up your foot and move it around. Very light and comfortable, I wore these shoes on a walk and they felt better than my regular sneakers. These things are also crazy durable. I got these during a winter tour on the west coast and put them through the ringer, now there's still not a mark on them. They've been through snow, ice, sand, mud, dust, etc. And all I have to do is gently wipe them off and they're back to looking brand new.

    The cons:
    If you have really high arches in your feet, these shoes are very flat, and while that's perfect for performances and playing, walking could get tiring if you have that issue, but all you'd need is a dr. Scholls pad or something you take out before playing and you have the perfect shoe!

    I will always push drummers to at least try these shoes. They are so worth it.

    These shoes are great, they are amazing. They helped me improve my speed a little bit, they do not ride up my ankles like most other ones I have ever used.
