I bought these sneakers because my Nike cross trainers did not work well for doing zumba. They would stick to the mats and this caused me to pull a muscle in my calf. I bought these and after a few days to heal my pulled calf I was zumba-ing at full pace. They feel great on my feet and I do the dance moves much easier with the smooth soled bottoms. Love them!

I was very excited to see these shoes, a regular looking sneaker with dance shoe features. Love my Bloch DRT Boost so ordered these. Unfortunately found them to lack cushioning/arch support. So sent them back.

These shoes were just too small. If you like them, I would think about ordering at least a 1/2 size up. I also think I expected too much from the "spin spot" which on my wood floors (what I usually dance on) did not seem very effective for spinning, but did feel like I could slip unintentionally when moving laterally across the floor. I wound up returning them and keeping the Ryka Influence and the New Balance 811.

I'd also recommend: Ryka, Brooks, New Balance

Comfortable, slip and rotate excellently. Lightweight. Good support and grip on the foot. Safe for dance. 6.5-7, use size 7 and perfect fit. Lovely colors, combined with everything. I love! This brand is excellent. Bought a Zumba brand and had detached bands of the sole in the first dance.

I'm keeping these shoes, but they are not what I expected from Bloch. I have several pairs of Bloch dance shoes, and all have more padding and support than these. They are larger, too. My others are either a 6 or a 6-1/2. These are a 6 and I could use at least 1/2 size smaller. However, than don't come smaller than a 6 and they are cute and comfortable enough for short spells of dancing, so I will keep them. Maybe I will add an insert to take up some of the space and add some padding.

I'd also recommend: Capezio, but I usually like Bloch better.

These shoes look exactly like the picture online. Usually when you get something they aren't as bright. I like the way they fit and they were great for jazzercise. When I ordered them I was a little apprehensive about the smooth bottom because when they wear out from class I use them as a walking shoe and was concerned about slipping. They were a little slippery in class a few times, but they are manageable. I like them enough to keep them and the price was right. You will want to order a half size larger than normal though.

I'd also recommend: Ryka

I think this shoe will work well for Zumba. Unfortunately the pair they sent me were two different sizes, so I haven't gotten to test them yet, but I have high hopes. Normally I wear a size 8 sneakers, and based on the reviews ordered a size 9, which ended up feeling only slightly too big. The other shoe was a 7 1/2, so back they go. I'll be interested to try another pair; just keeping my fingers crossed this time the shoes are same size!
