Stay Up to date with VRATIM
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!
This week we say good-bye to The Drum Shoe I - the shoe that started it all.
Our first Drum Shoe turned out better than expected and thanks to all of you, we've exhausted our inventory of The Drum Shoe I, are being forced to discontinue it, but were able to create the new and improved Drum Shoe II...
It meant so much to us getting such positive feedback from everyone that tried them plus it was a huge honor to have so many great drummers try them out. Because of its success and all of your help, we were even able to make an updated design that has proven to be better than the first version: The Vratim Drum Shoe II!
We can't thank all of the drummers that have been there with us since the beginning for trying a product they weren't familiar with and probably didn't even think about. Thank you so much for all of your support!
We would not be where we are today with out all of you and without this shoe.
P.S. If you fell in love with some of the color options of The Drum Shoe I, don't worry, we're working on restocking our Drum Shoe II's and will have some new color options when that happens as well this summer..
Stoked to be adding another home state drummer to our roster:
Please welcome Matt Kohanowski of Dealey Plaza!
“I really think it's cool how a company like Vratim can see an artist's vision, big or small. I'm absolutely stoked to be a part of this family alongside other musicians who put their heart and soul into music the way I do.”
We're so honored to have Andrew Holzbaur of Oceano joining the Vratim Artist Family!
“I've always been extremely picky when it comes to what I wear on my feet while playing drums. Vratim has changed that completely! The comfortable satisfaction I felt the day I put on my pair of Vratim shoes has changed my drumming forever. They're a family of caring and dedicated people that I'm grateful to be a part of.”
They're currently on the road, so definitely be sure to catch them on one of the dates if you can!
Sorry we've been laying low the past few days - big things in the works..
In the meantime, we're stoked to have Christian Riggs of Set For Tomorrow!
"Over the years I have searched for the perfect shoe to benefit my playing style. Finally someone has hit the nail on the head! Vratim's drum shoes are comfortable, extremely light, and the grip is perfect. I personally do a lot of sliding with my feet. While the grip grabs onto the pedal tight, I'm still able to slide with ease and control. I'm so happy to put an end to my search and happy to be a part of the Vratim family!"
They've been working pretty hard and are definitely worth checking out.

We're excited to announce that Alex Camarena of Silent Planet is joining the Vratim Family!
“The Vratim Drum Shoe II is by far the best shoes I’ve ever worn while playing drums. Incredibly lightweight, super comfortable, and the phenomenal grip to your pedals is AWESOME. It’s rad that they look super cool as well. I will never wear anything else while I drum again.”
Definitely check them out if you haven't already and head out to one of their many tour dates they have this year!
