Re: Best Shoes for Drumming


Hey Pinkon!

No worries, I'm just old and not real 'hip' sometimes. The 'footstop' on my Iron Cobra comes off if need be. I like it though because it keeps my shoe (or foot) from getting up into the chain, and lets me know where exactly my foot is on the pedal. I'll have to check out the 'Etnies'. Drummers simply must have cool footwear! When you're as old as me, cool is pretty hard to acheive. Any advice on how to be consistently cool if one is approaching sixty?

Re: Best Shoes for Drumming


I agree with you about having cool shoes for drumming (We also have to look good, just kidding). I think your coolness doesn´t go down with the years; it is pretty cool that you play drums and be interested in drums; I think the type of the shoe also depend on the technique you use for bass drumming (heel down, heel up, etc.) You should also check out DC shoes, those are my favourite shoes (I skated before I started playing drums). Have a nice day and happy drumming

Re: Best Shoes for Drumming


Hey Pinkon,

You made my day! Thanks for the kind 'cool' words. They are very much appreciated. I suppose if guys like Mick Jagger and the other sixties rockers still rockin can sustain the cool, so can I.
Myself, I'm a heel up kind of guy, and the Vans I have work pretty well using this style. I will look into the DC shoes. Thanks for the tip!

I have been using the same pair of Adidas Sambas and they are so amazing for drumming. They are comfortable, light, and flexible which I love. I probably will never drum in any other shoes again these shoes are just perfect for me, you should definitely try them out.

Hey Stonesour2112!

Thanks for the input! Addidas are great shoes, I wore their trainers for years but I am unfamiliar with the Sambas. I will have to check them out. By the way, outstanding Neil Peart quote, and I'm a big Metallica fan too! Have you seen their concert video where they're rockin with the symphony orchestra? Awesome! Check it out if you haven't already.

Re: Best Shoes for Drumming


Hey Stone!

You are fortunate indeed to have seen Metallica live. I have been fortunate in my time to see a lot of good concerts, but unfortunately, I live in an area that is pretty far from any real good concert venues. The closest is Salt Lake City, UT or Boise, ID. In my younger days, We would ditch work and all other plans to get to a concert. That's pretty hard these days with all the responsibilities being a productive member of society brings...wait I second..maybe I should retract the productive part. I will still travel quite a way to see a good concert. Amazing what tickets cost nowadays though.

Re: Best Shoes for Drumming


I get into shows for free, though I do carry my weight! I was hanging out in the parking lot with Mastodon's drummer and a friend of his, I remarked (after seeing his shoes were basically the same, black and White checkered Vans) that I felt like a poser. Then He pointed out That his friend also had checkered (though in grey) Vans. Though mine came from Argentina!

Re: Best Shoes for Drumming


Hey Gus!
Thanks for the info. I have the checkered Van's, but they are black shiny checkers on black dull checkers. Last Saturday night I played in them at a gig for seven hours. They were great! I believe have found the ideal drumming shoes.
