Top Notch Cheerleader Uniforms

Jungle Cheer Socks
Today, cheer-leading is a highly athletic and challenging sport. It includes physical moves such as tumbling, jumps, dancing and strength for lifts and mounts.
Cheerleaders require uniforms that are comfortable, durable and won't restrict the cheerleader during moves. Cheer leading uniforms also provide a bit of flair, color and are a way to show off team spirit. Squads are easily recognizable as part of the team by the uniform they have chosen.

Uniforms, shoes and accessories are the three main parts of the uniform. Although the designs will change from one uniform to the next, the basic functionality and durability should be retained.

  Cheer leading shoes are typically an athletic shoe. A sturdy but comfortable pair is important to have for performing cheer stunts, some of which are quite technical. The shoes must provide ankle support and should be cushioned properly to protect the feet from injury. Cheer leading socks also need to be a sturdy sock, and often times match the cheerleaders shoe.

Cheer socks should be worn to protect the feet from blisters and soreness. Cheerleader socks, available in many styles and colors to compliment any uniform, are a needed part of the uniform and can be in coordinated colors to add extra flair to the uniform. Footie socks are one of the more popular styles with cheer squads. They do not fall down or hinder the cheerleaders movements in any way.

Every cheerleader wants to retain a bit of uniqueness, however. That is usually obtained by wearing unique hair bows or fun socks. A great cheer leading uniform provides comfort, durability, as well as that special sparkle and shine that cheer squads bring to the game!

4 Tips For Looking Cool While Cycling

Cycling Dog Paw Socks
Due to Lance Armstrong, cycling is becoming much more popular. In the United States there is record growth in cycling. This is a very positive thing to hear in a developed country.

Everyday new cyclists are hitting the road. If you are one of them, this is a good time to tell you that you don’t need full cycling clothes for your first ride. If you don’t know what you are doing, but you are dressing in full cycling gear, from a famous team you make all cyclists look bad.

Everyone has to start somewhere and we all start as beginners. There are many ways that you can avoid the potential embarrassment of looking like a beginner though.

The first thing you’ll want to avoid is running out and buying a full professional kit. For those of you who don’t know what a professional kit is, it’s the full uniform of a pro cycling team. This includes their jersey, cycling socks and shorts. Don’t waste your money on these overpriced kits. If you want to wear cycling gear pick up some vintage kit. You can find great looking biking socks and jerseys from old school teams. Wearing athletic socks from a vintage team is a much more acceptable beginner fashion.

The second tip I can offer you is to buy the coolest looking helmet that fits your budget. You will be wearing your helmet all the time so don’t cheap out on it. If your helmet is too small or too cheap you will never want to wear it. Getting a nice helmet will not only protect you in an accident it also looks cool. You can also match you biking socks, to your helmet.

This is my third tip to you, make sure that your cycling clothes fit. It can be uncomfortable to wear Lycra in the beginning, but cycling requires tight fitting clothing. If your cycling socks are flapping around in the wind you won’t be moving as fast as you could with tight fitting biking socks.

The final tip is mainly for men. Keep your legs shaved. Wearing knee high athletic socks isn’t a secondary option either! It can be weird at first, but people tend to stay away from cyclists with hairy legs. I’m not sure why, but it’s true. Another great reason to keep your legs shaved is when you eventually crash you don’t have all that extra leg hair gripping the pavement.

Now that you know what is acceptable fashion for cycling get out there and enjoy a ride!

The Importance of Choosing the Right Socks in Softball and Volleyball

Circle All Sport Crew Sock
Athletic crew socks are incredibly important for a competitor. Most athletes overlook the importance of socks, but socks can prevent injury and keep an athlete in the game longer. John Wooden, the famous UCLA basketball coach, would teach his incoming freshman how to put their socks on properly. It was his first lesson for them. Whether an athlete needs softball crew socks or volleyball crew socks, it's critical to choose the right kind.

The first thing to consider is the material. Different materials do different things to the feet. Here are a few things to contemplate:

These socks will not hold elasticity very long, but the material will provide protection. Cotton is not good at eliminating moisture so your feet may become drenched and susceptible to friction. This material may provide good protection from the dirt in the form of softball crew socks.

Wool is old-school. This material sucks up moisture and the material shrinks when it's wet. Wool provides quality temperature control, but unless you want to be swimming in your foot's sweat, it is advisable to avoid it.

This synthetic material provides a good hold on your foot and ankle. Acrylic is great at wicking moisture and managing friction. This material would make a good option for volleyball crew socks. The material will hold through the constant lateral movement and will help prevent blistering.

Olefin and Polyester 
These synthetic materials are very strong and great at eliminating foot sweat. The downside of these materials is that they tend to store up the smell that an athlete's feet produce. Elasticity is also a problem. If a tight fit and protection is important than these materials will serve well.

The build quality is important for choosing the right athletic crew socks. Volleyball demands a high level of lateral movement and the right socks should reflect this. Volleyball crew socks tend to have a lower heel. This eases constriction on the ankle and allows for free, quick lateral movement.

Softball crew socks need stability. Stability promotes a firm stance on the ground and allows the player to hit a ball farther or pitch a ball faster. A higher heel will lock the ankle into place and add a touch strength to the joint. Stability will take some of the pressure off of the ankle and may prevent injury.

The look of the sock is also important. The right color will match the team's uniform and the right cut will make the athlete look a little better. Looking better breeds confidence and confidence can lead to success on the field.

Choosing the right athletic crew socks can show the coach that the athlete cares about the little things. John Wooden said that his players’ shoes might come untied if he didn't know how to put his socks on properly. If his shoes came untied then he'd lose playing time and affect the team. The little things can have a big impact.

The Soccer Sock Craze

Smiley face soccer socks

Leading up to the 2012 London Olympics, retailers noticed difficulty stocking enough soccer socks to meet the increased demand of consumers. As the US Women's Soccer Team won a gold medal, soccer socks for girls became nearly impossible to find. Retailers had difficulty with traditional socks as well as funky soccer socks.

The latest trend in soccer socks for girls is to be creative. No longer are socks simply one color or featuring a small emblem for a national team. Crazy soccer socks with patterns and bright colors, such as a vivid tie-dye pattern, are the vogue. These funky soccer socks are proving even more popular than traditional sport socks.

Soccer socks are thick socks, typically white, black, or red, which come to a player’s knee while covering protective shin pads. Without shin pads underneath, these socks can extend above the knee of the wearer while creating a fashionable look. A pair of crazy soccer socks can turn an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one.

While sport socks can cost a bit more than traditional socks, their enhanced construction and durability offset the costs. A modern pair of sport socks includes moisture wicking fabrics woven into the sock. This helps to keep feet dry, even when sweating. The materials are often resistant to tearing and the elastic more durable. This ensures the socks will hold up to athletic activity time and again.

The soccer sock craze is here and every girl on the planet will want a pair of socks to complete her outfit. Thanks to the new interest, more designs, styles, and sizes are available for every child. It has never been a better time to hop on the sport sock craze
