Marching shoes aren’t like regular sneakers so caring for your marching shoes is a must! Not only is it vital to maintain that polished, military look, but they’ll last longer and keep your knees, ankles, and feet safe from injury. The good news is that modern marching shoes don’t need a lot of extra products to keep them looking great.
Color guard gloves can be a lifesaver for your hands. Anyone who’s had to catch those big sabre tosses knows — especially those strategically placed padding points! But your gloves go through a lot, and it’s essential to take proper care of them, or they’ll end up looking dirty and shabby, which is a real bummer when the judges are looking.
Rifles have been a part of the color guard activity since the days of military pageantry. Traditionally, these nonfunctioning rifles were made from wood with metal parts to look just like their functioning counterparts.
Learn how to properly tape your color guard rifles with this easy to follow tutorial with a free, print friendly downloadable version. Band Shoppe can help you keep your new color guard rifle spinning great.
