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


Designed for the rigors and sensitivity that drummers need, but that everyone else wants. A glove for your feet.

    The Vratim Drum Shoe II.1 - Black

    Been trying theese out for a while, works great, awesome grip on pedals and alot easier feeling the hit on the head compared to regular shoes, just makes it more controlled, sadly i picked one size too big but that's just bad luck since i'm between 2 sizes.

    These rock

    Looking for a shoe that allows me the feel on my pedals w/o compromising my music. I was initially going to buy a slipper/moccasin shoe to get that feel. I read about these and thought finally a drum shoe. They fit well, feel good while playing and can be worn while loading and setting up. My wife who is a shoe fashionista noticed them and gave me the good looking approval.

    Pretty great shoe

    Any other shoe just doesn't compare to the way these work, it really changes the feel of playing for the better. They don't slip on the pedals, and they're comfortable without feeling claustrophobic. These shoes feel fantastic when drumming, but are a bit uncomfortable to walk around in personally. I would like more support on the arch, but I suppose that's why they're drum shoes and not running shoes.

    I bought them for my husband as a Christmas gift.... HE LOVES THEM!!!! He says it definitely makes a huge difference, he used skater shoes which were ok but he prefers these instead and that he won't go back to anything else. He keeps bragging about them. It was his favorite gift EVER!!!!

    Vratim Drum Shoe II.1

    Posted by Keith Schreiber on 4th Sep 2020

    These shoes are great for drumming in. They are exceptionally light so I would highly recommend for fast double kick playing especially with ankle technique. Perfectly fine for heel-toe too, but I like a little more weight for that type of playing. Overall awesome!

    I got these for my boyfriend and he loves them! The look on his face when he opened the box was golden and they were wrapped so nice. Great customer service. Great product.

    Best shoe for the drums

    Posted by Alexander Mitchell on 19th Jun 2020

    I've been using Vratim shoes since the first model, and using this latest v2 model has continued to deliver that quality. The soles are comfortable and truly feel one with the pedals, they feel light on your feet, and the shoes in general feel comfortable to wear outside when not playing on stage too.
