What do you get when you pair up one of the most innovative cheer shoe suppliers and one of the cheer industry's leading retailers? Well, it won't be long before you can see the answer -- the Wildcat cheer shoe.The Wildcat cheer shoe is touted to be the first low profile shoe made specifically for scholastic cheerleaders. Randy Cofield, Team Cheer's CEO and president explains it this way, “Team Cheer and Nfinity is a partnership between two brands with a shared passion for creating meaningful consumer product experiences through design innovation.” He goes on to say, "With this addition, Team Cheer is once again redefining its place as the Cheer Shoe Headquarters for the evolving cheerleading community.“This is the first result in which a new product brings a focused offering to a scholastic team."
“We’re working with Team Cheer to take the diversified sport to a new level,” said Tate Chalk, President of Nfinity Products. "The result is a performance driven cheer shoe that's built on a cutting-edge technology platform made specifically for the needs of middle/high school team members. Perception by the scholastic level cheerleader was that their products were inferior to the all star product. Now scholastic cheerleaders can be confident they'll consistently perform at their highest ability on either gym floor or field surfaces. Team Cheer and Nfinity hope to change the expectations of scholastic teams and to make them aware that their needs are as important as other types of cheer teams" said Chalk.
At a mere 7.2 ounces, the Nfinity Wildcat features the latest Nfinity technology, making this one of the lightest cheer shoe ever to hit the market for scholastic cheerleaders. The Wildcat utilizes the latest in EVA and upper construction to bring a better feel and control to the middle and high school athletic market. It has a slip lasted leather upper and has a removable arch insert for ultimate comfort. It will be available in Youth size 12, 13, 1, 2 and Women's size 4-11, 12. Each shoe is packaged in a hot pink shoe case that is exclusive to Team Cheer.
The Wildcat is expected to be available in September for a retail price of $49.99 through Team Cheer and will be available at all retailers in March 2008.
