Now that it is competition season, it’s time to kick your old beat up football sideline cheer shoes to the curb and whip out that brand spankin’ new pair that will help you shine all the way through competition season.
We’ve noticed that there are two types of people in this world…Ones who clean their cheer shoes every day after practices/games…
…and others who will live in them until they cannot stay on their feet anymore…Seriously though. This is a real pic from one of our Cheer and Pom squads… Her excuse for not getting new ones?? “But these are so comfy still!” Girlfriend, just no.
As funny as this convo was with her, still not okay to let your cheer shoes live this long. We get the comfort factor for sure, don’t get us wrong. Buuut now you’re pushing it. AND IT’S SO UNSAFE!! What would happen if she was up in a stunt and one of her bases got a finger caught in the holey shoes OR worse your base loses her grip on you because there is literally nothing left to your shoes?
Okay, okay. “Motherly Cheer Coach” rant over.
At the end of the day, after trying on the brand new pair, needless to say she was pretty darn ecstatic to get a new pair of shoes at this fitting. If this is what your cheerleading shoes look like, or even 1 tiny hole, it's time for a new pair.
