Buy 2 to 3 sizes larger than what you normally wear. My shoe size is 6.5, and I wear 8.5 or 9 in these. Once you have the right size - they're fabulous. Excellent arch support and cushioning. They accommodate a wide foot. Perfect for my dance classes and they look good too.

I had just started a Zumba class and was wearing a pair of regular tennis shoes. My knees were hurting so bad and I was told I needed either a pair of Zumba shoes or dance shoes. After researching online, I saw these Zumba Impact Pulse. I went to the Zappos site and loved the color and ordered. I have never worn Zumba shoes or anything like them before but absolutely love them! My knees do not hurt anymore during Zumba class and I have had so many compliments on them from people in my class! They are very comfortable,light and are a perfect fit for me with my colorful outfits! I received these almost immediately and definitely recommend purchasing from Zappos! I did order 1/2 size larger as I was advised due to the twisting and turning in class...my preference only.

The shoes are comfortable enough to wear as regular shoes but they don't offer a lot of support. I find my feet sliding off to the side whenever I do exercises like squats or anything that requires a rapid direction change. I think if the lacing part went farther down they would be better. The turn spot on the sole works well though.
These shoes are very cute and excellent for Zumba. The bottoms are made for sliding movements and feel much better than regular athletic shoes. I do find I have to wipe them down every few classes to keep them sliding properly. The biggest flaw is that there is no arch support in these shoes. I purchased a separate arch support to add to the shoes which helps but is not as good as a shoe with an internal arch structure.
These shoes are great for Zumba, and U-Jam. Comfort, support, and style all in one shoe. The uppers, and sides come a tad higher to secure your foot during all of your dance moves. The insoles have sufficient padding that allow you to "feel" the floor. The soles glide, and slide for excellent maneuverability. These are more costly then the other Zumba models but have been totally worth it. Please make them in additional colors ASAP.
