CFHTT Christmas gift guide mini-series.
Last in our mini-series is Luxury gifts for cheerleaders. Not sure what to buy your athletes then we let you know what Cheerleaders actually want.
Last week Top Gun TGLC reveal their new uniform made by Rebel.
Since the uniform reveal, it has been a talking point for controversy
People are saying the uniform is Cultural Appropriation. I feel talking about cultural appropriation is a very complex subject one I don’t feel I’m knowledgeable enough to talk about but I should say this. We have seen many cultures represented in dance so I find it confusing to understand where appreciation stops and appropriation starts.
Overall, I’m not a fan of the uniform because I feel its to plain and from Top Gun, I expect more, I need more, more glitz, more glam and where’s the sparkle.
I would love to hear, your thoughts?

CFHTT are so proud of CFHTT member @milliee_horne. Last weekend Millie went to the German All-Level Championship where she performed with @whiterosecheer in the Coed 4 division. Millie and Whiteroses killed it. First place, new uniform, Summit bid and the second highest score of the day.!!!
Today we have Team member Millie will be reviewing Nfinity Flytes.
Coming from a gymnastics background I was always apprehensive about wearing shoes to do tumbling and jumping. Having gone for 7 plus years with my bare feet being all I needed, I couldn’t see how I was going to change and do everything I had previously been doing with shoes on!
When I first started Cheerleading and was told to wear shoes, I envisioned big, white, clunky trainers and couldn’t imagine how anyone could jump high enough off the floor to achieve anything remotely good, let alone a whole tumble pass.
Then when I was introduced into the world of Nfinity, my whole opinion about doing this kind of sport with shoes changed.
This Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a pair of Nfinity Flytes off Mr Clause himself – obviously I’d been a good girl. I’d had my trusty Vengeance for a good few years, but it was time for a change.
First of all, we all love a good shoe box, and when I opened the wrapping paper to see a gold and black sparkly box, well I knew it could only be good.
I was so excited to get back to training to try them out. When I put on my brand new sparkling white flytes, they did feel slightly odd, because they’re new and different. I did immediately notice that it felt like they had mini springy cushions in the soles. This is really good for me at the moment as I’m training on a hard floor with my university team, any added bounce and softness is welcomed with open arms.
I had a good jump around to get a feel for them and was pleasantly surprised with the comfort and support of the shoe.
They also feel super light, at only 3.8oz, they don’t add any extra weight to you, which is ideal for every aspect of cheer I’d say. Weather you specialise in tumbling, jumping, dancing, or stunting, you want a shoe that’s light weight and doesn’t cause any inconvenience – the flytes offer this.
I asked one of my flyers to try them out so I could feel what it was like to base them. I found that the sole was nice to grip. There’s a good amount of shoe to get a good grip and I don’t think they’re too small or too clunky. The ‘stunt specific grip’ design really shone through here.
The upper section of the shoe is knitted material making it breathable, and stylish. My friend commented on how smart and cool they looked, which obviously gave me a confidence boost.
There are also lots of added safety features to the shoe to keep your season flowing smoothly. The padded achilleas support and reinforced metatarsal obviously aren’t going to be a magical fix to all injury, but will surely help prevent them.
The three rubber pads at the bottom of the shoe, which have been strategically placed in ‘high wear’ areas, mean the shoes should be long lasting and not wear away if you use them frequently. With the high demand of training and constant athleticism now required in cheerleading, this is a great addition. I can’t personally comment on if this is efficient yet as I’ve not had them long, but I’ve had no issues with wear and tear so far.
Overall, I think these shoes are really good, they’re stylish, supportive and slender, everything you need in a cheer shoe.
