Our story

The BKB (Barefoot Kick Buddy) is the result of over two years of research and development – born out of a desire to make drumming in the heat comfortable and precise.

Working with a development team in the heart of British industry, Sheffield, renowned for its quality and craftsmanship, the BKB team tested a wide range of materials before settling on the latest technology in durable, comfortable precision neoprene, that offered the ultimate balance of grip, cushioning and flexibility.  These same materials are relied on by professional divers in the toughest deep-sea conditions man can endure.

Having refined the design and technology, the BKB’s have undergone three stages of testing with drummers, so we can be confident you’ll be as satisfied as they are- view the trial, verdict and installation videos here.
