This international exercise craze will not only teach you different dance styles, but can give you all of the benefits of aerobic exercise. It can decrease your risk of developing heart disease, improve your general mood, and help you to keep off those stubborn excess pounds. Zumba requires you to dance, step, circle, and pivot quickly and easily, and to do this you need the right pair of shoes.
You need shoes that are study and comfortable, and easy to turn in. It would also help if the shoes were lightweight and stylish. While finding all of this in an aerobic shoe may seem difficult, we found a shoe that can stand up to the toughest Zumba routine and still look good.

The forefront of the shoes is slightly larger to accommodate the wider toe area, and the padded bed of the shoe gives you the comfort you need for dancing on hard floors.

Pros and Cons
These lightweight athletic dance shoes give you the advantage of stability and comfort. With an ortholite padding inside and an EVA sole outside, you can dance, turn, jump and slide without worrying about injury. The shoes are available in several different colors, so you can match any of your workout clothes and they are also designed to fit a woman’s unique foot shape.
One of the most common complaints about these shoes is that they can occasionally seem to run a shoe size smaller, and they do not have a lot of arch support. If you have flat feet or a low arch, you may want to consider using a shoe insert.
These aerobic dance shoes are great for Zumba classes with their ability to easily let you pivot while still giving you the stability that they need. The shoes are durable and comfortable, and also breathable. The front lacing closure, along with the padded tongue, not only gives you a secure fit but also additional comfort. Dance and work up a sweat in these shoes at your next Zumba class, and see how great your feet can feel at the end.
