Viper Marching Shoe

Picking the perfect pair of shoes for marching band or color guard often seems like an impossible task. But thanks to Director’s Showcase International, creators of the innovative Viper Marching Shoe, it isn’t.

The Viper, designed specifically for band students, is simultaneously stylish, ultra-flexible, and durable. The shoe appears to be a black or white dress shoe but feels and performs like a heavily padded jazz shoe. Its arch support, padding and flexible material allow for a wide range of comfortable movement, and the thick soles grip well to indoor and outdoor surfaces. Director’s Showcase International also understands that marching and color guard students put their uniforms through a lot of stress, so the Viper comes equipped with scuff-resistant toe protectors.
