I ordered these shoes to wear during my dance cardio workouts. Anyone who has ever done the Tracy Anderson method will know what a tremendous amount of jumping you do in her dance cardio workouts and I have been looking for a pair of sufficiently shock-absorbent shoes for a long time. These Nikes
are everything I have been looking for. I can do an hour of intense dance cardio without my feet, ankles, knees and hips aching, and despite the abnormal amount of time you spend landing on the balls of your feet, my toes do not feel crushed - they are not even the slightest bit discolored when I take my shoes off (which has been my experience with all forms of exercise but especially running
, regardless of shoe type and shoe size). For the price, you get an incredibly well-constructed shoe that will make your dance cardio/zumba/intense running
workouts possible. My only problem is that I do not particularly like the color combination (pink? yuck) but the shoe is so comfortable and lets me do my workout every day that I cannot complain. I wear a 6.5 in all other shoes and boots
and the 6.5 fits me perfectly here as well. A note to other buyers: the shoe is not made of leather but a polymer. It may feel and look plastic to you but it has actually helped keep the shoe in perfect shape since it does not stretch.
