Hi, at a meet this weekend we saw a team wearing shoes for beam, vault and floor. We've never seen any girls do that before. What is the purpose of wearing them - do they really help the girls grip the floor, beam better? Give better traction for vault and tumbling?

My daughter is level 10 and wears beam shoes for the 1st time this year. She has a front tuck on beam in her routine and the shoes cushion the impact. We ordered them from Germany and they have a gel cushion in the heel.
