Sneakers are light cotton shoes with a wide elastic waistband and a non-slip leather sole, rubber sole or split sole. They are used by dancers and gymnasts on stage, during dance or gymnastics.
Classification of the sneakers category
A sneaker, which is also known as gym shorts, is a very light – especially made for gymnastics – and extremely soft shoe model with thin and therefore very flexible soles.
Different functions and models
When making the selection, a distinction is made between different areas of application in which a gym shoe is used, because on the one hand it is
- a non-slip rubber sole
also to choose
- an extremely slippery leather sole.
Half of that is made of leather and rubber, because in addition to gymnastics, the sneaker is also used in acrobatics and gymnastics. For example, some models should better allow the body to rotate or slide.
Materials of the shoe
The insole of the sneakers is as soft as the sole and is also made of a sweat-absorbing material. The upper material of the sneaker consists of one layer and consists of lycra, leather or cotton. Some dance shoe models also have an elastic stocking or a ripstop to ensure a tighter fit.
Cross-stitched ribbons are also used so that the dance shoe fits the foot perfectly. Dance shoes are used to have non-slip or even sliding contact with the floor.
