ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Which of the three kinds of gym shoe is right for you?
For school sports or gentle gymnastics, when the floor is cold and hard, you could wear canvas gym shoes with an insulating sole. But if you want to be even more comfy, artistic gymnastics shoes are ideal. For artistic gymnastics, you need to be able to feel the floor or apparatus underneath your feet. This is why gym shoes with a supple microfibre sole are best. For rhythmic gymnastics, toe shoes are the best option.
Why wear artistic gymnastics shoes?
A lot of gymnasts do artistic gymnastics in bare feet to be more comfortable and so that they can feel the floor more easily. However, it is a good idea to get used to wearing gym shoes from a young age. Hygiene is the number one reason for this. Grip is another: gym shoes will not slip, unlike socks. Gym shoes will also prevent you developing Sever's disease, which occurs as children are growing.
What is Sever's disease?
Because gymnasts' feet suffer repeated impacts with no cushioning, micro injuries can form in the heel and lead to pain that prevents them from training. This issue appears as children are growing but it is not serious, and will go away if rested. Nevertheless, the best way to prevent Sever's disease is to wear gym shoes with a heel protector that will cushion landings and prevent it occurring in the first place.

    Not the best quality

    These wee shoes look great and feel nice on the feet, however after the first 2 hour session of wearing them the insole detached, causing discomfort while training. They have a wee stitch on the heel and that was the only thing keeping the insole inside the shoe, but the front part of it wiggled about . Would be the perfect shoe if the insole would be stitched all way round and not only glued to the shoe.

    Sport shoes

    I take size 6 in shoes and I ordered size 6 1/2 for these slip-ons but I still can't get them on my feet, too small, very tight and for the price, too cheap to return

    Verbesserte Passform aber leider keine Ledersohle

    Bessere Passform durch mehr Platz und nicht hohem Spann.
    Leider extrem rutschig durch die Mikrofasersohle. Weder für Turnen noch für Voltigieren o.ä. zumutbar.

    Estrechas

    Están bien de talón, pero la punta es demasiado estrecha y es incomoda.
