There are many things that you need to take into account when you or your child begins cheerleading, from the proper nutrition right down to the type of shoes that they are wearing to games and competitions.
For obvious reasons, comfort is definitely one of the most important things that you need in terms of a uniform and footwear for any cheerleader, whether involved in recreational or competitive cheerleading. Along with that, you are also going to want to make sure that you have shoes that are very durable, flexible and not too heavy so that there is any chance of weighing down the feet.
When you are looking for a couple of different brands to choose from to outfit your cheerleader in a great pair of shoes for cheering, there are a good amount of styles and designs that you can choose from on the market today. If you cannot seem to find a good selection in some of your local footwear stores, you can also look to the internet for one of the popular cheerleading supply stores. Another nice place to look for additional help would be from one of the cheerleading coaches or trainers for the squad that your child will be working with. The chances are very good that they have been working in the field long enough where they will have a couple of good suggestions and recommendations, which will help to point you in the right direction.
You might even find that they have a particular brand and design that they would like all of the cheerleaders to wear, in which case they might just have you supply the money and they will order the cheerleading shoes for you.
As far as the type of shoes that are needed for cheerleaders today, you will want some that are able to give wonderful support to the arches of the feet. This will help so that the stunts and tumbling involved in the routine can go smoothly, without any trauma to the feet.
Most of the time, you will be looking for a shoe that is crafted from soft leather, along with a good amount of mesh so that the feet are still able to breathe while in use.
Certainly, most cheerleaders are quite perky and bubbly in nature, however the wrong shoe can definitely deflate even the most enthusiastic squad member. Great shoe choices can lead to a flawless cheerleading routine that everyone can be proud of!
