I don't think I would... I have my comfy drumming trainers that have been moulded to my feet through years of neglect which are fine!

PS the link to urbanboards.coms at the bottom of the article is broken

Weckl was wearing drumming shoes back in the 80's.

In answer to the question: No. Not at those prices.

It's a reasonable idea that highly experienced drummers would know what suits them best, and in that respect a perfectly good product idea. However, they might not suit all drummers, just like not all "standard" shoes will suit all drummers. They do have various models to provide choice though so perhaps there is one I would like.

It's not a new idea. Guitarists have had their own line of shoes for years.

Well they look the part etc-but Costs??-followed the link but no show.
Probably going to be a thorough bread buy for Pearl fans but it's like everything else there is one for one and some for all but to whom undertake is for there personal requirements and begs the endorsement range yet again.Credible but collectible more so.A good shoe with a leather sole and a decent flat board works well every time,just find if your of the heel/plate party then probably have some credence.Also doesn't Steve smith play in some type of dance shoe which I think Neil pearl also played in for quite a time or similar in previous years?

Drumming is like a meeting to conduct business.

i'd be concerned that the flimsy sole would not keep at bay the undesirable liquid found on the floor in most of the toilets of venues we play in. I'll stick to my Hunter wellies.

And that's why you should clean your hands after packing away your pedals...
or wear drumming gloves to pack stuff away.

When setting up the kit and playing one must put the carpet down before the furniture goes on top
