LOVE these shoes. I was a dancer for many years and had old school Bloch dance sneakers w/ the split sole. I couldn't find mine (after 10 yrs! HA!) and wanted to get a pair that would serve me well for zumba. I went with these b/c they did NOT have the split sole (I wanted something more stable), they had the plastic portion at the ball of the foot that allows for easy turning and quick change, and heck, I LOVED the color. These are incredibly light weight. On a cold day I could feel the breeze straight through the mesh fabric. There isn't really much in the way of support between you and the floor, so I wouldn't plan on wearing these anywhere outside of class or the gym. I've used them for weight work and elliptical work and they're fine, but I'd honestly recommend sturdier shoes for that. For zumba, though, they're perfect. I typically wear 8.5 - 9 and tend to run a little wide. Zappos was out of stock of 9's so I chanced it and went w/ an 8.5 They run a little small and hug your feet pretty tight, so I kind of wished I would've been able to get a 9, but I still use them. The only reason I'd get a different pair is b/c I'd prefer a 1/2 size larger. Otherwise, ADORE this shoe. I get comments on them all the time.

The shoe is very trendy & cute but unfortunately does not provide enough support or stability for a fast paced Zumba or exercise class. Contrary to other reviews, the sole is very slippery,has very poor grip & it's so thin that after one class, some of the sole was pealing off & they're can't be returned. As for size, go a size up from your usual; they run small.

For everyone's information, this is not the zumba shoe to go with. I purchased a size 10 (normally a 9.5) and they still barley fit! I would consider my foot slightly wide and these were very narrow! The "spin spot" on the bottom is a hunk of hard plastic and not very "spinny" at all. To be honest they were extremely uncomfortable on me and I was very disappointed. I ended up purchasing NEW WOMENS NIKE FREE RUN+ 2 EXT on ebay and even though they are a running shoe, this is the best Nike shoe I have ever owned! They work great for zumba too as they are extremely flexible, supportive, fashionable and cushioning!

Love these shoes...I do zumba and these shoes are great for lateral movements. Also do step and these are the perfect shoes for that. You have to buy this shoe 1 full size larger than what you would normally wear.

I ordered a 6.5 med, my standard in a sneaker type of shoe. I am returning them because they are too tight. They run small.
