I bought these sneakers because my Nike cross trainers did not work well for doing zumba. They would stick to the mats and this caused me to pull a muscle in my calf. I bought these and after a few days to heal my pulled calf I was zumba-ing at full pace. They feel great on my feet and I do the dance moves much easier with the smooth soled bottoms. Love them!

I was very excited to see these shoes, a regular looking sneaker with dance shoe features. Love my Bloch DRT Boost so ordered these. Unfortunately found them to lack cushioning/arch support. So sent them back.

I wanted good, flexible, but supportive shoes for Zumba, my favorite sport. After trying sport-dancing shoes, cross-training and running shoes, these shoes really fit the bill for pivoting, side to side and jumping movements. I would have preferred a thicker sole for cushioning, but overall these are very comfortable for my feet. I needed one size larger.

Brands I'd also recommend: other Bloch sport-dancing shoes.

I ordered one size larger, as was recommended in prior reviews, great fit. I wear these shoes in a Tai Chi class. Love them. Comfortable - perfect for this type of movement.

My new Zumba shoes! No break in time on these shoes. I read the reviews and they were very helpful. They do run narrow and need to order 1 size up.

These shoes are perfect for Zumba! I love them. I read the reviews and ordered a 1/2 size bigger. I should've ordered a full size bigger. They're a little tight. I'm just hoping to stretch them out at this point.

This is the 2nd pair of sneakers I have purchased from Zappos, different brand. I have had no complaints. I have a narrow heel and always had problems with slippage. The return policy made it easy for me, if I had to return. So far so good. I still have both pairs.

Order this shoe a full size up! I am a solid 7&1/2, but even the 8 was way too tight, 8&1/2 feels perfect. I got these for Zumba because trying to turn in my running shoes was hurting my knees, these turn nicely. Other dance sneakers have not been wide enough in the toe area for me, even though I have an average foot; these taper a little in the toe, but still leave enough room. I kind of wish there were more color options, otherwise style is great, it looks more like I am wearing sneaker instead of a "dance shoe," which is what I wanted!

Comfortable, slip and rotate excellently. Lightweight. Good support and grip on the foot. Safe for dance. 6.5-7, use size 7 and perfect fit. Lovely colors, combined with everything. I love! This brand is excellent. Bought a Zumba brand and had detached bands of the sole in the first dance.

I ordered one size larger, as the review I read recommended. It worked out for me, and they are very comfortable. I like the way I am able to slide during Zumba! They are sharp looking too.

Love these shoes for zumba - was using cross trainers and these are so much lighter and I feel nimble. Can spin like a dream. They do not have arch support, but have really good shock absorption for ball of foot - and I only wear them for an hour at a time, so its a good trade-off for me since the ball of my foot was sore post zumba. Had to order a full size up, and it works even tho I have a bunion and need a wider shoe box (video said this was a wider model).

These shoes were just too small. If you like them, I would think about ordering at least a 1/2 size up. I also think I expected too much from the "spin spot" which on my wood floors (what I usually dance on) did not seem very effective for spinning, but did feel like I could slip unintentionally when moving laterally across the floor. I wound up returning them and keeping the Ryka Influence and the New Balance 811.

I'm keeping these shoes, but they are not what I expected from Bloch. I have several pairs of Bloch dance shoes, and all have more padding and support than these. They are larger, too. My others are either a 6 or a 6-1/2. These are a 6 and I could use at least 1/2 size smaller. However, than don't come smaller than a 6 and they are cute and comfortable enough for short spells of dancing, so I will keep them. Maybe I will add an insert to take up some of the space and add some padding.

Brands I'd also recommend: Capezio, but I usually like Bloch better.

These shoes look exactly like the picture online. Usually when you get something they aren't as bright. I like the way they fit and they were great for jazzercise. When I ordered them I was a little apprehensive about the smooth bottom because when they wear out from class I use them as a walking shoe and was concerned about slipping. They were a little slippery in class a few times, but they are manageable. I like them enough to keep them and the price was right. You will want to order a half size larger than normal though.

I think this shoe will work well for Zumba. Unfortunately the pair they sent me were two different sizes, so I haven't gotten to test them yet, but I have high hopes. Normally I wear a size 8 sneakers, and based on the reviews ordered a size 9, which ended up feeling only slightly too big. The other shoe was a 7 1/2, so back they go. I'll be interested to try another pair; just keeping my fingers crossed this time the shoes are same size!

I loved the color so really wanted to like these for zumba! They don't look wide, but I have a wide foot and they fit like a glove. I typically wear an 8 1/2 and ordered a 9, they were a little small on one foot so I'm returning for a 9 1/2.

The shoe is very narrow. I have a narrow foot but I also have bunions. I chose the Traverse over the Lightning II because I thought it would be a little wider. But after wearing them 3 times I realize it's time to buy a different shoe.
