    Kiddo was recently told at practice that she should get new cheer shoes. Currently wears varsity v forces but we are open to suggestions! Almost everyone at our gym has varsity shoes so not really sure where to look. Currently looking into Rebel ruthless and the Nfinity evolutions if anyone has any positives or negatives to share with them! This is our first time in a while not being forced to buy a certain shoe lol. (If this helps she’s a flyer, does around L3 tumbling and L5 stunts so hoping for something light yet supportive) . Only requirement is they have to be colored white and suitable for allstar floors! TY!

    My CP likes Nfinity Evolutions. Our gym wears Varsity Ascend for competition (we’re in Memphis...I think it’s a law that we have to wear Varsity) , but she says the Evolutions have better traction for tumbling. Her last pair lasted 2 1/2 seasons of practice and tumbling before falling apart. Her ascends are on their 2nd season, but since she only wears them for competition and a week or so before, that’s not really a fair comparison.

    We really like the Asics Gel-Ultrlyte 2 for flyers. The shoes are about 6oz so it won't weigh them down and it has hand-holds for the bases, plus they're not too expensive. We get ours on SuperiorCheer.com because they don't have minimums and free shipping after $200 but I think you get them direct from Asics too.
