I am a fitness instructor and I teach Zumba and Turbo Kick on top of Boot Camp and tone and chisel classes. I bought these for Zumba and Turbo Kick since I needed very little traction and good movement. These felt larger than marked and offered little support for my high arches. They aren't very trendy looking, but I was willing to pass on that if they did the job. I would not recommend this shoe if you are looking for support and spend many hours on your feet or working out. A bit disappointed because Nike has been a good athletic brand for years.

Very stiff, bought these for line dance and zumba. Shoe breaks on the top of foot in odd area, it feels too low, like the tongue is not long enough.

I am a Zumba instructor and wanted to try these out based on excellent reviews. Unfortunately, they did not work out for me whatsoever. I wear a Size 8 in Nike consistently and these were 1/2 to almost a full size too big. They felt very stiff and uncomfortable out of the box and they do not bend much at all. I am sad because I really like the way they look and they are very well made compared to other "dance" sneakers. I will be sending them back.

Although they're not particularly attractive (very black and heavy looking), they are very comfortable and definitely do a great job for my zumba classes and other workouts. I think I'll try and lighten up the color by changing the laces. Would be nicer looking in suede.

Returning, these shoes have no flex in them and I was not very happy with the comfort level :(. Darn shame too because they are so adorable.

Sadly, had to return these. The pivot point is made of rubber, which sticks and does not help you pivot when you are on a rubberized gym floor! (It would probably be fine on a hardwood floor - my instructor wears these but stands on a raised hardwood platform when she teaches). The shoe wasn't a bad fit, but didn't have much cushioning and felt a bit cheaply made. The search for a good Zumba shoe in a size 11 continues!

I purchased the Nike Musique IV (pink/grey) specifically for zumba and hip hop dance class. Unfortunately they did not work out for me. I am over 50 years old, so I need to be careful with my knees and back. I felt the shoes are too stiff, especially around the ankle area. I almost hurt myself while moving side to side. They also do not glide as well as advertised. I could have kept them for just everyday wear (because they are very cute) but I wanted to spend my money on something that would work for zumba. I also purchased the Ryka Transition and they did not look well made. I returned both and I am eagerly awaiting for my Bloch Boost DRT Mesh. Thumbs up to Zappos for outstanding customer service!

Not for the flat footed! I bought these shoes for Zumba and halfway through the workout, my feet were on fire from pain. If you have wide and flat feet like me, this is not the shoe for you. Otherwise, the shoe is great. It's stylish and lightweight. I'm using these as regular on the go shoes now.

The grey and pink ones were a lot cuter in the pictures than they were in person - at least in a giant size 12. The shiny parts just look cheap. More importantly, they fit weird. I felt like my ankles wanted to roll out, like the sole wasn't quite aligned with my natural center of balance. Hard to explain, but definitely not a shoe I would want to take a dance class in. Also, they felt maybe a half size small, like most of the reviews said. (Since I wear a 12, the biggest size they make, I can't tell you if the next size up resolved that weird, out-of-balance feeling.) Anyway, back they go. Still searching for my perfect Jazzercise shoe...

I bought these shoes for dancing Zumba but they are not light enough for that. I tried using them for kickboxing but still not comfortable. They look great, that's about it. Since I cannot send them back for a refund they are sitting in the closet while I await my Zumba kicks to arrive. I would not recommend them for dancing.

I'm really on the fence about these shoes. I bought them for Zumba, and they are great for quick turns and dance moves. They fit very snuggly on my foot and there is no slippage during the Zumba steps. However, during jumping moves, it feels like there's no padding or cushioning whatsoever. I frequently have ankle pain the day after a class. I've tried using some Spenco inserts, but they made the shoes too tight because they were so snug to begin with. The soles are very stiff and it's taken a while to break in the shoes. I've been through about 10 Zumba classes using these shoes, and they still feel a little stiff. Bottom line, these are okay shoes. I wish more brick-and-mortar stores sold shoes for Zumba so I could try them on before buying. I like that Zappos offers free shipping both ways, but I don't want to have to buy 5 pairs of shoes before finding the one that's right for me.

I wish these shoes had worked out. They looked fantastic, and the review stating that the shoes were wide enough not to hurt her bunion are what actually sold me on this model of Nike. But they pinched my formerly broken toe immediately and painfully, making them impossible to think about trying to break them in. Pity, but I am going to have to return them.

I am returning these without even trying them out at my Zumba class. The shoe is very stiff and there is not enough height in the toe box so you can feel the stitching and stiffness of the shoe on the top of your foot (and I have skinny feet!). I love my Capezio's but they are kinda chunky and ugly. I am going to try the Bloch's--I need a shoe with that smooth spot on the bottom for turning.

Shoes is very stylish. Unfortunately it is not very comfortable. The material is pretty stiff, might need time to break-in.

These are true to size, but out of the box they are very stiff and uncomfortable. I am a Nike girl and I am used to a little more flex and comfort in my Nike sneakers. I am hoping that they will break in a bit and fast!

After reading other reviews, I was very excited about this shoe. Unfortunately, it wasn't as great as I expected. I didn't think it had much support, and it seemed a little stiff. It is cute and inexpensive, but I'm sending it back. I wear an 8.5 - I ordered the 9 and it fit fine. An 8.5 would've been too small.

I was looking for a good pair of Zumba shoes and I thought these would be great. Unfortunately they were very tight which made them very uncomfortable. I am always a size 7 and do not ever need wide as my feet are fairly narrow. These shoes fit in terms of length but were so tight that it was painful. Unfortunately they were not the right shoes for me.

I love the look of this shoe; as I purchased to wear with my work attire when I wasn't wearing shoes. Well that didn't work well at all. The shoe is narrow, I thought if I wore them they would give. Not... My feet hurt so bad by the end of my work day; I sold them to a coworker. She loves them. The price is right; just wish they came in a wider cut. I want another pair so bad! Dag

Too bulky and heavy. Too narrow in the toes and too roomy in the heel. A weird fit to my feet. Many people may love them, but not for me. This pair is going back and I'm keeping Bloch Lightning.

I ordered this shoe for my Zumba class after reading all of the great reviews online. I wore this shoe to my class one time and although the Nike's felt better on my feet than my Brooks Adrenaline (running shoes) the Nike's still left my feet hurting after my 55 minute Zumba class. After reading all of the great reviews I was hoping this shoe would be the one but it just didn't fit the bill for me. I did order a pair of Ryka Transitions and these seems much better suited for me. I have not worn them to my Zumba class yet but I can tell and big difference between how these feel on my feet and the Nike's. Remember, just because a shoe has a ton of great reviews does not mean its going to be the right shoe for you. I suggest trying a few different brands and styles to see what works best for you and your foot type. Happy shopping!

Wearing this shoe feels like putting your feet in an oven. The shoe is made of tough leather so not only does it feel really stiff on top of the feet, like wearing cardboard boxes; your feet sweat really quickly inside the shoes. It's got poor ventilation and doesn't feel like your feet can breathe. I couldn't stand wearing them for longer than an hour, stiff and warm and sweaty socks inside. Some of you are not bothered by this, but I do. I finally returned them. If you'd like a dance shoe, I highly recommend Bloch Evolution. That one is a relief, with breathable canvas, split heels for greater feet mobility and flexing, and very comfortable. Good luck finding your shoes.

These are exactly what I was looking for. Extremely comfortable, lots of arch support and they run a bit narrow which is perfect for me. That said, unfortunately I will be returning them as one of the eyelets ripped out the very first time I wore them, so I'm not sure how well they are made. I am hoping to replace them with the same shoe with the hope the ripping eyelet was a fluke.

I had read reviews where this ws the best shoe for Zumba, they must mean for regularly arched feet. I have flat feet and found them narrow and tight with little support for a one hour Zumba class. Thanks but no, will retunr them.
