My Dance Sneakers

A lot of people ask me what kind of sneakers they should wear for Zumba.  I am no expert at this but I think anything that has:

  • Soles you can move in
  • Good shock absorbency
  • Feel weightless or light
  • Provide ankle and heel support
  • Flexible
  • Breathable
  • CUTE!
When I first started to Zumba, I made the mistake of wearing my regular gym shoes and boy did I feel it.  Not the best idea.  Invest in a good pair of shoes that will support your cardio and Zumba needs.  I now wear Huaraches and I recommend them to everyone.  My knees no longer hurt, my ankles feel stable and those horrible shin splints are a thing of the past.  Plus they are cute!
