Just tried out sneaker while doing Zumba yesterday. WoW!!! No more painful feet - I kid you not. I was contemplating to insert arch into the shoes, but i didn't even need to. The sneaker is so flexible and has a smooth glide for dancing. It has enough cushion to absorb the impact of my jumping, hopping or stomping around.
I'm glad I read the reviews from customers closely to order the right size as well. I wear a US size 6.5 - 7 for office shoes and sandals; size 7.5 for sports shoes. I ordered a size up (i.e. 8.5) from my sports shoes for the Bloch Boost Dance Sneaker. Fits me just perfect!! It has a little room left if I opt to wear thick socks, but wearing thin socks works well for me. The sneaker is also good for people with wide feet. I purchased the sneaker in black (the pink ran out of the size I wanted anyway) - easy to match with outfit, even if it gets dirty, it won't be that obvious. Overall, I'm more than satisfied with this sneaker. Worth every single cent.
The reason I do not give these 5 stars is because I feel there should be another hole on top like sneakers have, so that it grabs the top of your foot better. These are a little too loose.
Otherwise, I highly recommend the shoe for jazz and zumba. I find that the dance sneakers are better than sneakers for doing zumba. I have tried many of the 'cuter' more colorful ones, and they made my feet tired.
But..alas..I was upset to discover that no matter how I laced them, (tight all over, tight over the instep only, graduated tightness on stress points and more), my arches and metatarsals were killing me after only a few minutes of the workout. Thank goodness I was at home and not at the gym or studio.
Objectively, every Zumba class and routine may be different, every surface is different, and everyone's foot and body type is different. I guess the split sole and lack of at least a panel around the sides where the arch and metatarsal are that would offer more support didn't work for my feet's requirements.
So please keep in mind that these shoes may work for you, but I recommend trying them at home, if you can, before you decide to keep them and wear them to a class. I'm returning them and will be on a quest for the perfect Zumba shoe.
