Travis Barker sells bloodied shoes & drum sticks


Given his intense drumming style, it’s no surprise that Travis Barker sheds blood on occasion while playing with blink-182. As proof, Barker has sold a number of items stained with blood lost during blink’s 2023 reunion tour.

Among the pieces offered were bloodied Vans shoes and drumsticks, which went for $4,000 and $1,500, respectively. Other options include blood-spattered drum heads and pants.

Barker launched the collection in collaboration with the collectible platform Trophy. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Lost But Not Forgotten CA, which helps bring the holidays to children experiencing hardship.
