These shoes helped tremendously with my zumba class. The pivot spot on the bottom of the shoe gave my knees and ankles the relief they needed. Regular athletic shoes are to sticky and can cause knee and ankle pain and injury. These solved the problem. The shoes are comfortable. They run true to size. They have wide toe space.

Ordered shoes on Sunday, shipped out Monday and received them Tuesday! I was very pleased with the delivery! I was a bit worried that the shoes would be heavier but pleasantly surprised that they were very light and not at all clunky or heavy. I wear a size 8 1/2 and the shoes fit with a little bit of room in them. I would rather have that then to have them too snug as to where I would feel that my feet hurt afterwards. The shoes are somewhat slippery so be warned! I was concerned at first but after doing zumba, I was pleased with the way they worked. I found that wearing these shoes, maneuvering turns and steps was easier than if I were wearing sneakers (and my previous sneakers were just as light as these)! The difference is the bottom of the shoes, although it feels like they are slippery, they work awesome! It's all about control! The style is awesome and I've had a few people in my class already asking me where I got them from and how they love them! My mom even loves them! She wants a pair for herself! I will definitely be wearing these for quite awhile! Very pleased with my purchase! Thank you Zappos and Zumba!

These shoes are ok for spins and turns but they are too flat, there is no arch support or cushioning. They are very stylish. I teach zumba class and I get lots of compliments on these shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike, asics, skechers

I am a Zumba instructor with one bad knee. These shoes are just what I needed. I was wearing running shoes for the extra cushioning, but these are much safer to dance in. They don't cure arthritis, but sure help me do the work to keep it manageable.

I am a Zumba instructor and I absolutely love these shoes! I have a small, wide foot so it's hard for me to find just the right shoe for anything but these are truly amazing! Not only do I have 5 pairs of them but I have encouraged my students to purchase them as well and they also love them. One thing, though - you should not wear them outside on asphalt or concrete as this tends to wear them down much faster and makes them too slippery to use safely on wood or tile floors.

I am so happy I got these. They feel great. They have the smooth soles on the shoes that help my knees so much. I cannot believe the difference in how well I can move in class with these shoes on.

I really like these shoes. I have a pair of Skechers "go-run" shoes that are really lightweight, and I wanted a shoe that was light but not so sticky on the bottom so that I could work out in my aerobics class. These were just what I needed.

These are my first Zumba shoes, so far I've been very pleased with the purchase. I've been going to Zumba in regular gym sneakers, and I can certainly feel the difference with Zumba Impact Max. It's easier to do sliding movements, etc. I wear size 7.5 Brooks Ravenna running shoes and these shoes in 7.5 were a perfect fit as well.

These shoes are cute, and comfortable, and perform well with Zumba. I prefer a shoe with more support for every day wear. My Zumba class is one hour, so they are great for the class.

I wear these for jazz classes at a dance studio. My feet need more support than soft jazz slippers provide but I need to be able to turn. I have tried other sneaker-type shoes with pivot points & these work better for me.

Yes - I was having knee pain - pivoting on foot - twisting, etc. I was wearing cross trainers when this happened. This Zumba shoe has a pivot point on the foot so you actually pivot and your foot/leg move with you. Others complained of it slipping - I didn't experience that. Knee pain stopped with these shoes. Flashy color.

Very nice for Zumba. Slides easily on the gym floor which helps take some pressure off the knees when doing some of the Zumba moves. Comfortable, very light weight, yet still good foot support. True to size. And they are cute!

I have an arthritic knee and need light but study shoes for exercise. These are turning out to be perfect. Some reviews have stated that the shoes haven't much arch support, but I'm finding them to have sufficient support for my knee. I did exchange for half-size down (from 8.5 to 8) for better fit.

After three years of Zumba I am glad to finally have a real pair of zumba shoes. These are definitely more lightweight and slide better than the cross trainers I was using before. My feet still get hot working out but that may be a function of my socks. They are also very cute. Overall, I'm very happy with them.

I find it easier to move my feet with the zumba impact max shoes. They are real comfortable. They make it easier to glide with your movements. I just love them.

Very lightweight and comfortable. Eliminates the problem of catching on the floor which was hard on my knees. I recommend these.

This is my first time buying shoes for Zumba and other dance classes (instead of wearing running shoes). I was not sure what to expect but I just wore these for the first time and it was really easy to move around, especially side to side. I wear a size 8 shoe (in regular shoes) and ordered a size 8, which was perfect. These shoes appear to run somewhat on the wide side, which meant I had to pull the laces pretty tight (I also have narrow feet). I read reviews that said you should order a size down but I am glad that I got my usual shoe size because there is a tad bit of extra room but that allows for socks, and any larger would mean that my feet would be sliding around. The only thing that I do not like is I feel that the shoes could have more arch support than they do, although it is not bad. I tried a pair of shoes by Ryka and they appear to have better arch support (but the sizes did not work as well for me). I ordered the blue/purple color and love the fun colors. Zappos is awesome - I ordered this one evening and received them the following afternoon!

I really liked these shoes, but they do run large. I'm returning the 6 for the 5.5 and hoping for the best. Very light, good traction on the dance floor but easy to turn and slide. Wish I had listened to reviews that said to order smaller. Super pretty and came with an extra set of laces in a different color.

I bought these shoes in black for Zumba classes. They fit true to size, look good, and they are comfortable. Of equal importance for Zumba, they allow me to do all the pivots without sticking to the floor.

I do five zumba classes a week and these shoes are great. They are lightweight and they simply glide on the floor making my zumba moves so easy. The colors are gorgeous. I highly recommend them.
