I ordered 2 different dance shoes to wear to Zumba. These are okay, but they are very thin in the sole and give no support at all. Limited room in the toe bed. Almost kept them but am searching for a better shoe if I'm going to lay down that kind of money.

These shoes are comfortable but maybe not meant for Zumba? I was excited to get them and tried them on yesterday for an hour long Zumba class and by the end of the class my feet were burning. I think they need a little more cushioning on the footbed. I'll try getting some inserts and see if that helps. I wear a size 11, and they fit perfectly in terms of widths and comfort.

Bought this shoe for Zumba after returning the Nike Musiques. Love them! Very comfortable and stylish. I bought a half size larger than what I normally wear because of the experience I had with the other shoe and they fit okay. I do wear heavier socks so they fit fine. I believe these run true to size and I wouldn't have needed the extra 1/2 size.

I love these shoes! The look is fantastic; the feel is great. Initially they're hard to get on, but they fit really well once my feet are inside. I use them for Zumba, and they do a great job of keeping me on my toes!

Brands I'd also recommend: Ryka is a good brand

This shoe is absolutely adorable! It is also extremely comfortable. It is not really a true athletic work out shoe -- more for Zumba or just running around town. Love it! I ordered my usual size of 8 and it was perfect! (I normally wear a 71/2 in regular shoes.) Even wearing it around without socks this shoe was comfortable.

I bought these shoes to replace my usual cross trainers for Zumba class. They are very light, which is great. The only disappointment is the arch. They don't feel nearly as supportive as any of my other athletic shoes.

I am having the worst luck finding zumba shoes! This is the second pair in one week. Their traction is good for zumba. I wear 11SS and these were narrow enough with my orthotic. Unfortunately these seem to be about half a size too short. Sadly, I did not really feel it until after the class today so I will not be able to return them. I am tired of wasting all this money! The shoes may need a tad bit of cushioning in the forefoot because my feet went numb a few times during class.

I love the shoe, but found the arch to be too flat for comfort. I can only wear them for a short time without back pain.

The shoes are really cute. I bought them for Zumba class, but after trying them on, they are too narrow and caused my foot to cramp. I will stick with Ryka Synergy for my Zumba shoes.

Purchased for regular zumba - great for turns and pivots - but no arch support and I really need that. Too bad because the shoe is cute and is good for the dance moves - but my foot are seriously in pain by the end of the class!

These shoes have no support whatsoever. I wanted to wear them in my aerobics dance class and they would not have supported me at all.

I use these for kickboxing. They have really good arch support, and the gel insoles are really comfortable. I'm generally between a 7.5 & 8, women's. I bought the 7.5, but it was just a bit too short. The 8 was perfect. They are narrow, but if you're doing high impact routines, this is necessary so you don't roll your ankle. Also note, the soles are designed for mats. They do not have traction like running shoes.

Purchased for a Jazzercise class. Cute shoe but the sole is hard and inadequate cushioning and shock absorption for high-impact activities. By the end of an hour my feet burn and calves are in pain. I've switched back to my old Ryka's, which need to be replaced but are more comfortable than the Asics GEL. Do not recommend this shoe for high-impact aerobics activities. Hope Asics improves this shoe!

Brands I'd also recommend: RYKA is a far better aerobics shoe

Bought them for Jazzercise. Great for the dance and aerobic moves, but not very stable for the yoga, Pilates and strength training moves we do in class. Have to keep the core tight in these shoes. Not my favorite. Cute though.

The GEL-Rhythmics are light weight and the tread on the soles make it easy to pivot when doing Zumba. However, the slightly rounded shape of the soles take some getting used to for balancing routines. It forces you to concentrate of the centers of the balls of your feet to avoid the tendency to lean sideways or tip over.

I bought these shoes for Zumba classes because I was looking for more cushioning at the ball of my foot area. They are pretty good but I am not totally satisfied. They could use more cushioning. The size is true and I love the color. All in all they are good shoes for class but not great ones.

Really cute but little support and they run very narrow. I typically wear a 10 med or 10 wide is Asics. I bought these for Jazzercise but too flimsy. They are not even supportive for walking.

I ordered a 1/2 size larger than my normal size and they fit quite well. I returned them because they were very shiny. If you want really shiny shoes, that's great, but I was hoping for a more subdued metallic that I could wear to work. On me at least, they looked cheap and a bit tacky.

I was looking for replacement shoes for Zumba. I attend class in a gym with a wood floor. These are slippery enough, but dont offer enough support for the jumping/aerobic parts of class. Cute shoes. Sent them back.
