I am normally a 6.5 and after reading the reviews, I decided to try my normal shoe size first and go from there. The 6.5 was too small, so I ordered a 7.0 and a 7.5. Both the 7.0 and the 7.5 fit comfortably with light weight fitness socks, but I ended up returning the 7.5 because that size had a little extra room in the toe area. Now that I’ve found the size that works the best for me, I love the shoes and have recommended them to others.

I needed a more flexible shoe for twisting and foot movements in my Zumba class. Insofar as studio/dance shoes, the sole of this shoe seems more flexible than, for example, some of the studio shoes made by Nike. It is very easy to do the twisting moves in my Zumba class, and the shoe really "wraps" around my foot (almost as an extension of my own foot). My shoe size is in between a 7 and 7.5, and I ordered an 8 (per previous recommendations regarding sizing), and the size 8 fit very well with thin socks. I am not thrilled with the appearance, but, hey, I bought it for function.

I use these shoes for line dancing and Zumba and found them to be very comfortable. They took a little getting used to - I had to find the sweet spot for pivoting etc. After a few times wearing them I was very happy. Runs small: I got an full size larger that street shoe.

Great feeling shoe! I've yet to use them in a class but I like the feel of them on. At first I was hesitant about no middle since I have a high arch, but these shoes literally hug and support your mid-foot, and provide good pivot control. I've talked to several people from cheerleaders to dancers to more who have loved these shoes for years. I'm sold! They do run small though, as it seems all dance shoes do.

I love these shoes. They're not only very lightweight and super comfortable, they have a split sole that's great for Zumba / dancing.

Love them! After becoming a Zumba fanatic, I wanted the best dance shoes and these are them! As others have said, yes, the size does run small. I didn't believe them at first, thinking all women would like to pretend their feet are smaller than they really are, but nope, they were telling the truth. You will need to go 1/2 to full size up. I usually wear a 7 and got the 7 1/2. It still is a tad snug, so if you want room, you should go a full size. They are light and turning is a breeze on the floor. Plus they look cool!

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike Musique, Ryka

First let me say that Zappos hands down has the best customer service. I bought these for Zumba and they are working out great! The slide when you need them to (wooden floors in the gym) and still have enough grip to keep you from slipping. I usually wear a 6.5 shoe, 7-7.5 sneaker and kept the size 8 in these. The 7.5 was too small. I will probably get an insole for some extra cushioning in the front part of the shoe, but other than that these are perfect! Nice snug fit around your foot. Would definitely recommend for anyone doing dance aerobics/Zumba.

Very comfortable, but runs very small. I ordered a half size larger and need to exchange them for another half size up. Hope they will fit.

I love these shoes! They are lightweight, very comfortable and sleeker than other dance sneaker styles. I usually wear 8.5 but ordered these in 9.5 and they were just right. I have worn Capezio dance sneakers before, but find these to be more comfortable.

I love these shoes! I usually wear an 8 1/2 but ordered the 10 based on other reviews. They're a little roomy, but feel great! I use them for my zumba classes. They really allow for the dance moves, and my knees don't ache like they used to with the Nike Musique's. They're a little slippery on some of the vinyl floors, but otherwise they're awesome. Would definitely recommend.

I received my Bloch dance sneakers and love the way they feel on my feet for Zumba. No more knee and ankle pain for those the regular crosstrainers I was wearing. I suggest as others have...go 1 1/2 sizes larger.

I tried on lots of dance sneakers, and this was the most comfortable. It runs small though. I wear a size 7 or 7 1/2 street shoe, an 8 or 8 1/2 running shoe, and a 9 in this.

These dance sneakers are very comfortable and are working out well for my Zumba class. They glide across the carpet making it easier to twist without injury. I normally wear an 8 1/2, but had to go up to a size 10 to fit in length. They do run small. I have high arches and find that the arch support is very good. As always Zappos is the best in customer service.

I ordered two pair of these sneakers. One a half size larger and the other a whole size larger than my normal shoe size. The half size larger was the best fit for me. The shoe is very comfortable and works perfect for Zumba. I am very pleased with the shoe and with Zappos!

I am a Zumba instructor and wear these for every class! I have tried 4-5 other styles of shoes and these are the best for me by far. Excellent pivot points. I was skeptical of the arch support, but it is great, too! Perfect for those that dance regularly. They do run a size to a size and half smaller than street shoes - order several pairs up front to decide what size you need.

For my Irish dancing daughter, who dances several hours a night, four nights a week, and needs great support for her feet, knees and legs, these were a home run! They fit perfectly. The design is much sleeker than older versions of dance sneakers. And they are incredibly flexible.

This is a wonderful dance shoe. Gives lots of support but is light and flexible. I have very hard to fit feet because they are wide and I have a high instep and it is perfect. Love it!

These shoes are good for Zumba! They are lightweight and flexible, yet provide enough support for the higher impact steps in Zumba. They provide great arch support and pivot point. I did have some difficulty with sizing. Ultimately, I had to buy a size 10, which is 1 1/2 sizes up from my street shoe size 8 1/2, and 1 size up from my athletic shoe size 9. Also, this was my first purchase with Zappos and it was so easy. I'll be back for more.

Design was comfortable even though my feet are not narrow and this is definitely a narrow shoe. I'm between a 6 and a 6.5 street shoe and I ordered a 7.5 and it fit well.

This is a cute shoe. I like how you don't have to tie it. The arch was to high for me. I usually wear a 6.5 and ordered a 7. Wanted a 7.5 but it wasn't available.

I was having trouble with twists and turns for Zumba. These have a sole that grips when I need but allows the turny-ness dance exercise needs (my running shoes grip way too much and very unidirectionally). These run small though and I would suggest a whole size larger.

Got these for Zumba class, the midsection of my foot hurt during class, not sure if they are the best shoe for Zumba. By the way, I wear a 6 or 6 1/2 and had to order an 8! The first try never fit.

I was looking for something for Zumba on a carpeted floor. This shoe is awesome! Light, comfortable, and just enough slide without being too much. I ordered a size larger initially and my toe was squished at the end. Returned for 1.5 sized larger than normal. It fits great!
