Shoe and Glove Requirement

The Liberty University Marching Band is pleased that you will soon wear our very sharp and state-of-the-art uniforms. While the uniform (jacket, trousers, shako & plume, gauntlets, raingear) are provided by the band, all members are required to purchase their own BLACK gloves and "Drill Masters" black shoes (sorry, no other shoe is accepted that you may have had from high school, even if they are rather new). We have required these shoes for a few years now, and it presents a professional appearance. Please order your shoes from a vendor of your choosing, such as Bandshoppe.com. Gloves may be any brand, cotton or grip, etc.

Our guard section will place a separate order for their unique footwear and gloves.

You may also contact Daniel Spencer, Head Field Commander, at djspencer@liberty.edu for more information.

Our local music store, Lynchburg Music Center, will also offer these shoes and gloves for sale at band camp checkin. Prices may vary.
