Cheer Shoes: Find Top Cheerleading Shoes for Less
At Omni Cheer, we understand that choosing the right cheerleading shoes is a difficult decision that cheerleaders face every year. It is not only important to find cheer shoes that mesh seamlessly with your existing uniform, but that also provide the comfort and support you require for practice and performance. Even your specific position on the squad or where and how you cheer can have a say in what type of shoe may be best for you. Are you a flyer or a tumbler looking for a light weight shoe?

High-Top vs. Ankle Cheer Shoes
Adult and youth cheer shoes are available in two basic styles: flats and high-tops. Flats stop around the ankles and are the most popular option for many cheer squads. The low profile, lightweight design is comfortable for girls in all positions, from flyers who need something lightweight to tumblers who need flexibility.
High-tops from leading brands like Reebok offer added ankle support and may help with balance for cheerleaders able to work with the extra weight. A sturdy pair of high-tops may work well for some practice sessions, even if ankle-length cheer shoes are preferred for performances.
Color Options for Your Cheer Sneakers
Black and white are the two standard color options for womens and girls cheer shoes. White cheer shoes are more prevalent because they blend well with most cheerleading uniforms and have a clean look that judges often appreciate.
Black cheer shoes are becoming more popular with some squads, especially for street performances. Cheering outdoors on the hard pavement is more likely to leave scuff marks, and black shoes are less likely to show wear and tear.
Accent Shoes Now Available
You can also choose white or black shoes that have color accents on the sides. The shoes come with an assortment of colored plastic pieces that you slip through slits on the outer edge of each shoe. That allows your basic white shoe to match your cheer uniform with the perfect accent color. You can ensure all shoes match or put different colors in each shoe to match your team's color scheme carefully.
