In 2017, we managed to drastically increase our artist roster, move into a proper office/warehouse, and managed to ship a pair of shoes to every continent (except Antarctica). All in all, we're completely blown away and blessed to have accomplished all we have in 2017.
For 2018 we're hoping to further expand! We're going to work on having our shoes retailed elsewhere aside from just our online store, we're going to strive to grow our artist family more, and we'll try out best to be more interactive with everyone.
We're heard all of your thoughts and feedback about our shoes and everything and just know we are trying our hardest to check off all the items on our list of suggestions.
Thanks so much for the continued support and understanding. We may be a very small company, but we aren't going to let that stop us!
We're excited to announce that one of our endorsed artists, Tyler Saczawa (Born A New), will be taking on some artist representative duties.
Tyler has been working extremely hard over the years not only with Born A New, but also as a booking agent with The Arkham Agency. It's been great watching his band progress to touring across the country as well as seeing all of the musicians Tyler interacts with.
With his help we're hoping to reach out and discover new artists to help further build our artist family!
We are beyond stoked and honored to announce that we will be one of the sponsors for the fall run of dates with Epic Proportions Tour!
EPT has been booking and organizing its own tours since 2011 and brings concerts to high schools, colleges, and military bases across the US. They are an awesome, veteran-owned business that offers free entertainment and education about music and the arts to high schools across the country.
We are excited to be part of their upcoming tour!
Definitely be sure to make it out to one of their stops if you have the opportunity to do so.

New Artist Endorsement: Grayson Latimore Jr. of Shawn Perry & The Hazzard County Rebellion / Jul Big Green
We're stoked to be expanding into some new genres of music lately!
Please welcome Grayson Latimore Jr. (Shawn Perry & the Hazzard County Rebellion / Jul Big Green)!
We're adding yet another home state drummer to the family..
So stoked to have Stephen Arango of Traitors joining the family!
"Very excited to be part of the VRATIM family! These shoes have given me the extra umph I've been looking for. Usually hate wearing any types of shoes, but when playing with/wearing these, I literally forget I have em on because of how comfortable they are and they look just as amazing! Would highly recommend these 10/10 all levels of drummers!"
We have no intentions of ever limiting ourselves to one genre because we know there a lot of amazing drummers in many different genres. And on that note, please welcome Elisa Seda to the Vratim Artist Family!
"These shoes are by far the best! They are so light, comfortable and they grip so well your pedals! I love these shoes!"
Definitely check out her YouTube videos!
We're stoked to be adding some more Florida talent to our artist family! Please welcome Dylan Honkonen of Bodysnatcher / Secret Keeper.
"I usually prefer to play without shoes but after playing a full tour with a pair of vratims shoes, I'm pretty confident that I'll be wearing them every time I play."
Dylan will be heading out on tour all summer with both bands so definitely be sure to catch him playing!
We're stoked to announce that Adam Marko (all the way from Budapest) will be joining the Vratim artist family!
“The importance of mechanical grip is as important in drumming as much in the Formula 1.
Without it we can't control perfectly what we do. Vratim has created an amazing shoe which gives me the control and comfort in the same time, plus they look gorgeous. I'm really glad and excited to be the part of the Vratim family!"
Definitely check out what he's involved in - super active drummer in Europe!
