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
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!
