Default Drum shoes - watersock I like

I was playing barefoot but wound up with a sore heel playing heel up. Wanted something light, ary, that I could wash, didn't look bad and protected my heel.

I got these and they are great and cheap

I had a pair of cheap water shoes that I tried drumming in but they don't breath well and they will make your feet sweat a lot.

I usually just play in tennis shoes or sneakers or whatever you want to call them.

Sometimes I play in my crocs. Very comfy but I don't have the "heuvos" to wear them to a gig.



I can't wear slip on vans. They don't provide enough protection from dropped cymbals.

Look what happened last time.

I'm pretty sure what you need that meets these requirements is called a "sock". They come in pairs. :-)

Actually, when I get mine they come in 12 packs.

Personally, I prefer bare foot, haven't had any issues but then again, I've only been playing a couple weeks now.

Seriously though, on the subject of socks.. Look for some that are designed to pull moisture away from your feet, not just regular cotton socks. Go to like a sports or bicycle shop and look there. I have a few pairs that I use when riding my mountain bike and they are great for keeping your feet covered and dry.

Totally agree. I'm a sock-snob, and only wear one brand of synthetic hiking sock. That's all I wear, all the time.
