    I hear ya brother. I couldn't believe there were so many posts about shoes. Especially people not wearing shoes. But I do have to admit when I'm playing a gig where the music is really, really kicking, I do have a favorite pair of shoes. They give me a little speed assist if you know what I mean.

      Do the heels trigger also or is this another trick by Roland to get more money out of us

        When I first got serious about drumming about 8 years ago could only be comfortable with running shoes on. I would go out and play for a few minutes sometimes being to lazy to put on shoes if I wasn't planning on playing for very long, and I couldn't play. It really bothered me and made me too uncomfortable. I took a few years off due to moving, being in the military, getting married, having a kid, etc. I recently purchased an E-Kit, and I can't get used to playing with shoes on. I have to play with socks. Weird!!!!
