What to look for in a Zumba Shoe
While dance shoes may seem like the obvious choice, this is not always true for Zumba classes. Dance shoes allow you to make turns and have less grip but they don’t protect the foot and legs from high impact steps such as those used in Zumba.
Other athletic shoes may provide great support, but they don’t let the foot turn or twist the way dancers need to. This can lead to injuries with the ankles when doing turns in Zumba.
So, the best shoe for Zumba is somewhere between a dance and athletic shoe. Zumba shoes are much like cross trainers in that they are flexible, but also give you support to absorb impact.
Brands to Choose From
Major shoe brands now have a line specifically for dance fitness classes. Nike and Adidas make several shoe lines for dancing. Other brands such as New Balance, Ryka and Capezio also make great Zumba shoes. Zumba has also developed its own line of dancing shoes which can be used perfectly for the class.
Where to Buy
Most shoe stores carry dance shoes so you don’t need to worry about visiting a specialty store. Remember that it should be light, easy to turn or dance with and good on the soles when doing high impact moves.
You can also shop online in several department stores, sneaker brands and in the Zumba store itself. Get a Zumba shoe that fits you perfectly and have get the most out of the fit dance experience.
