(After Hours / Independent)
"When I was turning 17, I asked my parents for a pair of Vratim Drum Shoes for my birthday. Ever since, I've been in love with them. What caught my attention with Vratim is that you get the satisfaction and gravity of being barefoot, yet you get the attack, balance, grip, and security of wearing shoes. It's the best of both worlds, which is why I wear them live, in the studio, or even in the kitchen making diner. The most versatile pair of shoes I've ever owned."
