Stay Up to date with VRATIM
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!
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.”
