What shoes are appropriate to wear at Zumba?

top

We Highly recommend Dance sneakers , they can be purchased at Champions, they tend to have soles made of a less sticky plastic, with a pivot point designed to facilitate turning and twisting motions. Therefore, they are easier on the knees. However, they do not have the same arch support that an athletic shoe provides, and they do not provide the “assistance” that a stickier soled athletic shoe has when it comes to stopping or changing directions quickly.

Are my Athletics shoes ok for Zumba?

top

Athletic shoes are ok as they offer a lot of shock absorption, so they are great at diminishing the shock felt on your legs and joints as a result of jumping movements. They also tend to offer superior arch support, when compared to a split-sole dance shoe, and they often offer some additional stabilization for over or under pronation, and ankle support. The disadvantage to this kind of shoe can be that they have rubber soles that offer a lot of traction. Twisting or turning actions will require more force, since the shoe is resisting, and this kind of resistance can result in knee pain over time. This is why we recommend Dance Shoes.
