I got these shoes in white for a dance performance. I\'ve only worn them on stage which is a marley surface. They work perfectly for turns and are not slippery for other moves. However, I have not tried them on a wood floor. They give a nice toe point. They are lower to the ground than some split sole jazz shoes and I like that. I have an average foot but I think that the shoe is a little narrow in the front and a little tight in the instep as it does not have an actual tongue. They look good on my feet.

Ordered a a gift and bought a size larger as that is what others had said. Still too small, now have to pay to return. That makes a very bad unwelcome gift!

The Bloch dance sneaker is ugly in my opinion. Actually, the picture looks better than the real thing. That being said, the sneaker is great for Zumba. Since I started using the Bloch dance sneaker about a month ago in my Zumba dance and Zumba toning classes, I no longer feel torsion in my ankles and knees when I do the many spins. The sneaker has very good lateral (side-to-side) support as well. I only have two complaints in terms of comfort. First, you must be careful when taking this split sole sneaker on and off, otherwise you can end up with foot cramps (that happened the first time I tried them on). Second, I can sometimes feel something under the ball of my foot that I think may be the edge of the plastic pad. I agree with other reviewers, order 1 full size up from your street shoe size. I normally wear a 7.5 and I ordered an 8.5.

Just received these today and wore them in my Zumba class. What a difference between these and regular sneakers. Very good for the sliding and twisting moves. They are very flexible as well. The mesh helps keep your feet cool while working out. I definitely recommend these. I did buy a size larger as others had suggested and they fit perfect.

These shoes are the ticket for Zumba! I just started doing Zumba a couple weeks ago and after 3 classes could not stand any of my athletic shoes, so read up on shoes and decided on these and they are fab! The pivot point is great, super flexible sole, light as a feather, and no more sore feet. I have narrow feet but believe these are average. Definitely order one full size up as suggested by others.

Excellent shoes for Zumba. They run narrow which was perfect for my AA. I had to get the length a whole size larger to give room for movement.

My feet are a tad bit wider than a average feet, but they are not actually wide. I wear a 8½ in heels, and a 9 in flat shoes. I wear a 9½ in my Asics. Initially I bought a 9½, which felt like an 8. I returned those and bought a 10½, which was perfect. Once I got the 10½, I determined that they are, in fact, super comfortable.

These shoes are perfect for Zumba! I did order one size larger than I normally wear because I have bunions. This was the perfect adjustment for me.

My order got mixed up and I received someone's slippers. When I called customer service, they were excellent and I received the corrected order the very next day! I am so pleased with Zappos and will not only order again, but I will tell my friends and family about you!

Everyone said it ran small and to go up a size to a size and a half. I opted for the size and a half. I should have gone with the 1 size up. I just wear them with thick athletic socks. They really help with Zumba. I was getting left leg pain from doing Zumba in running shoes. That is a big no-no, but no one ever tells you that when you start taking Zumba classes! I would buy these shoes again.

Love it. Go up a size; thanks to your reviews finally got the perfect fit. I wear a 7, got an 8 after returning 8.5 too big. Zappos came ASAP as usual, and thanks to free returns, I am a happy camper at Zumba.

What a wonderful shoe for Zumba! It is lightweight, and very attractive, not clunky looking like sneakers. It makes the dance steps go much more smoothly. I wear a size 9, so I ordered a 9-1/2 per advice of other reviews, and the shoe fit perfectly and it is so comfortable.

Liked the shoe but found it short. I wear a street shoe 6-6 1/2 and ordered a 7 1/2 also seemed very narrow for a medium width. Difficult to put on.

Brands I'd also recommend: ? will try Capezio next (said to run wider)

I have a long narrow foot and this shoe fits perfectly! It's got good traction and the smooth spot for spins is great. It's a medium width, but fits like a narrow. The length was true to size.

I use these shoes for Zumba classes. They are comfortable, provide good support, and the configuration of the sole maximizes my ability to move without knee torquing on turns. The perfect product for my needs.

Very pleased with speed of delivery and quality of product. Normally take a size 7, so am glad I followed other reviewers and ordered a 7 1/2, otherwise would have been too small.

A very nicely made shoe. The split sole design is great for several types of dance. Not a street shoe, though. I ordered three sizes in a row and ended up with one size larger than my street shoes to make up for my wide feet. It is about a half size too long because of this, but being a leather shoe it is breaking in comfortably. A really nice shoe, especially for the money.

The absolutely best shoes for working out, dancing or just walking downtown streets. My only wish is that Bloch would make cute everyday shoes with the same support in the soles and arch. They are fantastic. I practically live in them! They do run small, so buy 1 full size larger (I am 7 1/2 and bought an 8 1/2) and prepare to be amazed!

I've been doing dance aerobics several times a week for the past year and realized that I had been sustaining damage to my knees due to poor footwear choice (i.e. running shoes). I needed a shoe with great flexibility and enough support to keep me going through an hour and a half of exercise. This one fit the bill. After using it for a few weeks, I can already attest that my joint discomfort is improving and I'm actually getting a better workout since this shoe works with the movements instead of against them. As other customers have stated, this shoe runs small. I normally wear a size 11 in street shoes and a 12 in athletic shoes. For this shoe, I had to go up to a 13.5! I recommend ordering several pairs to find the one that you need.

I bought these shoes specifically for Zumba. I like them because they are very flexible and hug my feet. Wearing these shoes makes the dance moves eaiser on my knees because the cross trainers I wore before gripped the floor too much. I would not wear them for my other workouts, but for dance based groups these are great!

I purchased these dance shoes for my daughter who is in hip hop. She loves them. They are very comfortable. She normally wears a 10m but after reading the reviews I order her an 11 which was perfect. We are very happy with our purchase.

I just purchased these for Zumba class. I had trouble finding shoes to fit my wide width foot. These feel great and the mesh toe bed gives plenty of room. I wear a 7 normally, and I had to get 8.5 to fit comfortably. The arch support isn\'t great since these shoes are very flexible and can be bent in half. I\'m overweight and am able to use them in Zumba class pretty comfortably, but you wouldn\'t want to use them for more than an hour at a time without arch support.

Ordered these shoes with some trepidation because I have rarely ordered shoes online before. I couldn't be happier with my selection! I did order a half size larger than I normally wear (based on other reviewers recommendations) and that was good advice. The shoe is not easily slipped on because it needs to be tight while wearing it and I choose to wear socks with the shoes. Once you get the shoes on, they feel great, lightweight and the structure allows you to do all the Zumba moves without the stress on your knees. I thought my Zumba and other fitness dance classes were over because of damaging my knee while wearing a regular athletic shoe but these shoes have made all the difference!
