“Fast service, excellent shoes (they fit like gloves!), a Godsend! The pedals seem to love the new suede that caresses them – they were made for each other. Thank you for a very fine product, the best I’ve had in a half century as a church organist!” – A. B., Oakland, CA

Just got my first pair of OM shoes on Monday, and am so incredibly pleased that I am ordering another pair for home practice. I've used Capezio Tap shoes for 35 years now, and didn't know what I was missing! My feet feel so sure on the pedals. Pedal lines that were difficult for me now seem much easier. Thanks! K.P., New York

"The most comfortable and workable organ shoes I have had in my twenty years of organ playing." - M.Z., New Jersey

"The workshop leader gave the highest praise to your shoes and demonstrated how SILENTLY they work on the pedals." - H.S., Florida

“Just to let you know the shoes arrived and are GREAT! Perfect fit and a pleasure to use – am enjoying my playing even more. Many thanks for all your help.” – Ian C., Katoomba, Australia
“Let me begin by saying that RARELY am I impressed by Customer Service whether it be an in-store purchase or online. For a woman NEVER at a loss for words, I am searching for a way to express my amazement and absolute delight with both the service and quality of my inaugural purchase from OrganMaster!
I went on the OrganMaster website …on December 1, 2014, placed an order for shoes.
Imagine my surprise when USPS delivered the OrganMaster box to my doorstep on December 4, 2014...just 72 hours since placing my order!!!!! PHENOMENAL!!!!!!
Your customer service is THE best! Thank you, OrganMaster!!!
Regarding your shoes, they fit perfectly and function top-rate at the console. Thank you and continued good wishes to your company and employees!” - M.K, North Carolina
"I just used my new shoes for church and I love these shoes! I put off ordering organ shoes for ages because my feet are quite wide. These shoes fit comfortably; the quality is excellent. Best of all, they really Do make a huge difference in ease of playing pedals. I'm way happy." - C.S., Washington, USA
"There was no way I could make my feet or shoes do the foot exercises in the book. My wife found your website, and the shoes you sent make the exercises easy. Now I might be able to learn the organ after all, thanks to your shoes." - Tom C., Washington
"I am thrilled with the shoes and I feel that they already have made a difference in my playing. I enjoyed the lightness of the shoes, but also the ability to not slide off the foot pedals and still have the ability to slide to another note. I also appreciate the inch and 1/4 inch heels that are on the shoes. They allow for the ability to play thirds with no problem at all." - J. L. from Minnesota
This letter explains the science behind why the right shoes are so important:
“I have been playing the organ for sixty years. Last month, for the first time, purchased a pair of OrganMaster Shoes. I want to compliment you and your staff for the excellent product and service which you provide. The woman with whom I spoke on the phone last week was most helpful and charming.
Before trying your shoes, I had always thought that people who believe they needed special shoes to play the organ were a bit effete or obsessive or superstitious. I have changed my mind.
As I approached the age of 70, I noticed that my feet were not as sensitive to feeling the organ pedals as formerly; the condition worsened to the point that, on certain days, I felt I as if I were wearing showshoes! I talked to a geriatrician, who told me about proprioceptors (‘self-feeling’). These exist in all parts of the body - they let us feel the position of our joints, limbs and muscles without visual help. The proprioceptors in the soles of the feet let us precisely feel when the ground upon which we stand is uneven, and thus aid in balance. After the age of thirty, these begin to gradually deteriorate (like everything else!) so that we have impaired balance and tactile sensitivity.
The first thing I did to try to help was to buy sheer silk socks(or the modern polyester equivalent) instead of the thicker cotton or wool socks. This may have helped a little. When I first tried your shoes, however, with their thin suede soles and higher heels, the difference was dramatic: I have regained the pedal accuracy I had as a young man.
This past Sunday, I played (along with nine other organists) at the annual Naples Philharmonic organ recital on the four-manual 1990 Casavant. We had an enthusiastic crowd of 700. . . .
I want to thank you and your family for such a great idea and such a great execution of that idea into reality for all of us organists -- let’s call this a class action thank-you -- who are grateful for OrganMaster Shoes. -- John Fenstermaker, A.A.G.O., D.S.M., Naples, FLORIDA
