    What cheer shoes do you use for your rec team?

    I'm looking for some lower cost quality shoes for my jr. high teams. We cheer at 5-7 games and don't compete so $70-$80 shoes seems excessive. Any shoes that you just love?

    Have you talked to Rogans shoes? They have a ton of info and will come out to fit your girls. We use generic cheer nikes and they usually make it through a season at games and comps then the girls wear them in gym class and stuff.

    I haven't talked to them, but in the past I've compared prices and theirs are usually higher than a couple companies online that I usually order from.

    Try Chasse, they're pretty comfortable and really cheap.

    Those are the ones I was leaning towards but I had never talked to anyone that had them.

    Power shoes are good if you are not a flyer (they are wider shoes) . They are around 30 to 35 and very light. My daughter used them for few years until her bases complained too much.

    Nike cheer flash are very nice. They are light and have good ankle support. They are 45-60$. But they are not that cheap. Asics cheer Iv are nice and their like 35$. But they fall apart in a couple months.

    *i have got chase performer. They are really nice and light and form fitting but after a couple practices they started falling Part. The nice thing about the. Is that they were cheap

    The soles on our Chasses came off at the toe area, had to glue them back together for competition. The sizes run small. My little one loved them though, said they were very comfortable.

    I got shoes from www.omnicheer.com. I can't remember if they were Chasses or not, but they worked out great for our sideline (we had 10 games and one competition).

    They were almost identical to the Infinity Revolutions but only $25.00!!!!

    My daughter had a pair of Chasse Vault. They lasted about 6 months before the soles wore out. They were only $20 though, so 2 pairs a season are still cheaper than a pair of $80 shoes. And she did love them.

    Thanks for your input everyone! We went with Chasse, but I forget which ones specifically. I had to exchange two pair because they were too small but I like the way they look and we'll see how they hold up.

    Back when I did rec cheer we had to buy Nike cheer shoes. They were bulky and my bases always complained that they were hard to grip! They also had the little color inserts. OMG I hated those things

    Nike Stamina Lo - Women's - Cheer/Dance - Shoes - White/Black

    Those are quite popular in Europe - run 0,5 size small but they are genuine leather so once broken in they┬┤re quite comfortable and not as bulky as the other cheaper shoes. The soles are quite narrow - probably easier to grip. My CP and cheeradopted CP love them and they are quite durable (now 3 sesaon including sideline and will work another one and PE in school). Reasonable price: 39 $.
    Before that we had different pairs of Kaepa shoes but either the soles fell apart after a few weeks or the shoe was huge and bulky. Plus I forbid to ever use the Nfinity Evolutions outside.
