First, let’s talk about the material that your Zumba dance shoes should be made from.

The best shoes for Zumba will be stylish and at the same time lightweight. They should be constructed from a fabric mesh. This aids your feet in remaining cool. Avoid footwear designed for aerobics if they are made completely from leather.

Next, let’s discuss the role of cushioning and shock absorption in your workout sneakers.

You want to select footwear that will provide the proper ankle support, are lightweight as mentioned earlier and have plenty of material to cushion the shock of the dance movements. A little research here will go a long way. There are many name brand manufacturers such as Nike, Ryka, Bloch and others that fit this bill.

Recently, the company itself has come out with their own line of footwear.

They are perfect for your exercise classes however I would not recommend that you go out on a run or go shopping with them on. Save them for what they were intended.

Women’s Z1 Sneaker

The Z1 sneaker which is billed as the "light as air" workout shoe from the company. It gives you maximum support with a molded foot bed. Not only is it super comfortable, it comes in both black and white colors. You also get five sets of shoe laces that come in assorted colors.

Finally, let’s talk about the proper arch support.

This can be a problem if you have high arches or bad arches. We would strongly recommend that you purchase some kind of athletic insert to provide additional support for your arches. As mentioned earlier, the name brand companies really do carry a quality line of footwear.

So, there you have the three crucial elements to keep in mind when selecting your Zumba shoes. Remember, pick out a your footwear so that it’s lightweight. Hold them in your hand if you can and make sure they are not too heavy.

Second, make sure to select a footwear that provides a great deal of shock absorption and cushioning. Stick with the name brand manufacturers since they do a better job at producing a quality product.

Finally, purchase an athletic insert to provide your footwear with greater arch support.

If you ignore any of these three elements you will end up wasting your money and picking out the wrong type of Zumba dance shoes.

    I also heard from a zumba instructor that it is important to have a shoe that allows quick directional changes of the foot, not a shoe that has “drag” on the floor

    Our classes have a lot of pivoting of the feet and moving in a circle first clockwise, then counterclockwise….
