  • New Drum Shoes!

    Just got some DB Drum Shoes recently (my GF bought them for me).

    Check them out here

    I really like them so far! Very light, really well ventilated, thin neutral sole and great feel! It will be interesting to see how well they last. Anyone else have these??

    The only thing I'm not crazy about is their choice of colors... You can have pretty much any color you want as long as it is black!!
    Would have preferred a lighter color but oh well.

      Tried socks... too slippery! I need some traction! Also tried barefoot, but it wasn't for me. I have to have something between my feet and the pedals.

        me too. Besides I need some protection for all the shattered bones and nerve damage in my left foot. I use some "swim shoes" and add nice innersoles. You can see them in the shot of my monster in digitalDrummer. Very comfy...light and do exactly what I need them too.

        I looked at the ones you have but I've never had good fortune buying footware online.

          I used to wear light weight Asics wrestling shoes for years. Very comfortable. These look interesting. They look similar, except for the missing hi-top.

            Got very lucky on the size. Ordered towards the large size of what I normally wear and it turned out perfect.

              They look sorta like Pumas or Cortez Nikes. Not bad.

              I'm a sock person mainly cause I don't wear shoes in the house. I'll play with whatever I have on though. If it don't feel right I just take the shoe off. Barefoot I can't do tried it once for about ten minutes and my feet started sweating and slipping. I can't wear shoes without them either same reason.

                  Damn. Outside of the missing hi-top and the colors, those are identical to the ones I used to use.

                    Well if you're interested, Alan, I'll just say that they run a little large. 95% of the running shoes I buy are size 10 and the tai chi shoes are 9.5. It's a very soft leather upper and a very thin, flexible sole. The out sole is a nice sort of gum rubber. It's not the harder carbon rubber usually used on runner's training shoes or even the blown rubber used on road racing shoes. I don't think they would wear particularly well if used as normal street shoes but they're ideal on pedals.

                        Sorry but i happen to be one of those that don't believe in ''drumming shoes''...There are plenty of shoes in the market that do the same job..How many ''must'' and goodies will come out in the magic world of drumming ? Maybe drumming chewing gum , drumming arm wrists, drumming socks , drumming condoms for after the show ??
                        I would like to see one of those old fashioned jazz drummers with ''drumming shoes'' btw

                        ''Lucy'' (Diamond electronic drums with a td-12 module)
                        current E-kit
                        ''Cherry Gretschy Lady'' (Gretsch Catalina Ash 6 piece A to E kit-Roland td20 module-A to E cymbals)

                            LOL!!!! Awesome Kev!


                            To the OP, I play in my socks as well, but I only play at home so I suppose it's not an issue. I can see the need for a shoe that would give "feel" if one was playing in a band or if one had foot problems. Good find!

                              I was actually looking at Puma yesterday and saw these martial art shoes that looked like they'd be great...
