"For me, with drumming, one of my biggest struggles was always my footwork. And being comfortable while working on that is a big thing for me. To me, having a good pair of shoes to play in is just as important as having the right sticks to play with. The Vratim drum shoe gives me the grip that I have always needed. There's no sliding off the pedal boards when I go up in BPMs anymore. But most of all, they are flexible and comfortable as hell. Playing in anything else is just not the same. Vratim is the way."
