I have spent the past year looking for the perfect shoe for zumba. I finally found it. I have been having pain for a long time as I do a lot of high impact instructing. These took my pain from unbearable to non-existent! I probably could have ordered a half size up. Arch support is fabulous, I'm able to jump easily, I don't have problems with lateral movements, and I have no pain. These shoes are a dream, and I immediately ordered a pair for running. Great for anyone with foot, knee, or back problems, or for the person who is hard on shoes! Didn't even need orthotics either!

Let me start off by saying that I have only worn these shoes 5 times and was on Email Notice when these shoes came back in stock. Excited to start wearing them at the end of May when my daughter was winding down from school and I could start my Zumba workouts. On my 5th time wearing them the left shoe front heel became un-glued and now flops. How disappointing is that! I'm sure if could simply be a defected shoe but because so much time has lapsed not sure Zappos will exchange my shoes as these are not cheap. But I have have to say that it is comfortable shoe and I really liked it. I will try and see if they will be replaced and hope that the next pair does not have the same issue. Hard for me to recommend to someone else based on my personal experience. Size up 1/2 size.

Cute shoes. They design of the shoe has a split sole so I returned them. I need the arch support.

I purchased these shoes for Zumba and all I have to say is these are the best shoes I've used thus far. My knees and my back aren't hurting. I can actually do jumps and twists now. I've used several different shoes (Nike and New Balance) that were recommended for Zumba and they were nothing compared to these. I hope they do not stop this shoe. I don't love the pink (my whole family laughed at me for wearing pink), but for the level of comfort, who cares?!

I am a Zumba dance teacher, 10 classes a week. I was suffering from plantar fasciitis and was ready to give up classes. These shoes saved me. They are so lightweight, flexible, smooth bottom for a nice pivot and amazing support if you like to jump. I added a spenco arch support for a little extra arch. Wonderful shoes!

I really wish these would have worked. For my foot issue, I need a shoe that is not so flexible. Rats. For someone else, it would probably be a plus. They are incredibly light. They did fit well, getting a half size larger than normal. They just don't have the support I need in the arch and toe areas.
