    Shoes & Kick grips

    The shoes are great and I love them, but if you can't afford them... the Kick Grips alone are outstanding!!!

    Can't believe the difference these make!

    I would always drum in Vans, and for the past year, I've been wearing Nike Tanjuns when drumming. I never thought shoes mattered that much until I decided to try these. These shoes blew me away! They give you so much more grip and control over other shoes. I definitely recommend checking out the sizing guide because I had to go down a size for a better fit.

    Great Drumming Shoes

    Posted by Terry Shields on 17th Mar 2021

    I purchased these to replace a worn out pair of drum shoes from a different manufacturer. I have been using them for a little over a month. The grip is really good, your feet don't slip on the pedals. The built quality is really solid and they are comfortable to wear. Great product

    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

    Posted by Mike on 21st Feb 2021

    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.
