I just saw the ad for the db drum shoes on the home page and wondered if anyone has them or knows anything about them. It looks like a cool new product but I just wondered if their worth the cash or not.
LOL i am sure Carl Lewis will next run in combat Boots since footwear is not important...seriously footwear is very important, try playing in lace up cowboy boots as opposed to flat converse tennis shoes practice has nothing to do with it it is ergonomics, whatever you wear you should not constrict your ankles or foot movement. Your shoes should not only be comfy but should not slip on pedals or be big and clumbsy so you can move fast and smooth between pedals . They should also bend easily at the ball of your foot...footwear is very important to think otherwise,is only cheating yourself...drummert2k":22igv1px said:to me, special footwear is just a crutch for someone who wants to try to replace practice and technique with gear and "technology". seems like a waste of money to me. if you need a cirtain type of shoe to feel confident with your playing, you might be lacking in the practice department
All the old schoolers wore patent leather dress shoes on the band stand.Flatliner":2x9eqia8 said:A lot of old school jazz drummers seem to think the dance shoe is the perfect drummer shoe but not a lot of them play really fast foot work so I'm not sure why this opinion has developed.
