I saw these in a magazine in a different color and had to have them for Zumba. Where I take class the floors are wood and I get kind of stuck when I try to pivot or turn (I was wearing cross-trainers) and these shoes actually help me turn! I have gotten tons of compliments in the gym on the colors, especially the soles.

I'm a Zumba instructor, and I typically tell people to avoid "dance sneakers," which have traditionally been thick, split-sole style dance shoes not really intended for aerobic exercise, so I bought these figuring I'd likely need to send them back. Initially, they were very slippery (I teach on a wood floor), but after a few wears, they are absolutely perfect. They grip when they need to grip and slip when they need to slip. They don't offer arch support, and the sole is relatively thin - but this is ideal for my foot. I'm very happy with this purchase!

I own several pairs of Bloch sneakers. I use them for Zumba classes. I always am looking for a cute, hip pair of shoes for class. These are very comfortable and appear wider than other styles in the toe area. I love the multi colors and especially the sole. These were comfortable right out of the box. I am so happy that Bloch continues to add new styles. I normally buy 1 1/2 sizes up but I think 1 size up in this style is fine.

These shoes have become my favorite Zumba shoes with a little breaking-in, even though the first few times I had to be careful as the bottoms are so slick. They are great for turning and twisting the foot, but a little challenging on side stepping. We dance on a smooth wood floor. Because of previous comments, I ordered a size 9½ (I wear between an 8½ and a 9) and the fit is perfect for me. I love the purple/green color, too.

I got these shoes for Zumba and I get many compliments on them. The smooth bottom makes it easy to turn. I do Zumba on carpet & I was having problems with my knees prior to getting these shoes but no more! I do slide around a bit, but it's not a problem for me; however, some people may not like that. The shoes run about a 1/2 size too small. I wear a 10 but could have used a 10 1/2, sadly they only go up to 10, but they are still comfortable.
