Flexible with extra ankle support and foot cushioning and sold in half sizes
Some find them too slippery and they run smaller than street size
The most popular split sole Zumba shoe, a great buy, but order 1 size larger than normal
These sneakers provide good ankle padding, which can be great if that’s what you need, however some people who aren’t specifically after the ankle protection find this a bit too bulky. They’re light weight and comfortable while remaining very flexible.
The Capezio DS11 comes in half sizes but like many dance shoes runs approximately 1 size smaller than normal street shoes, so most people find it’s best to order 1 size larger that you normally wear.
The shoes are synthetic and mesh with a manmade split sole, while some people have said they find the soles a bit too slippery, they are definitely great for twisting and gliding.
Designed for dancing; the split sole allows maximum foot flexibility, however with this comes an expectation you will have spent time strengthening your foot muscles. If you haven’t done much dancing before, you may well find the split sole means you get some pain in your arches while you build your foot strength.
Capezio DS11 come in either black or white with 4 different designs, as an added bonus you’ll find the box also comes with an extra set of laces.
They are more bulky that some other shoes, but with this comes great heel and toe cushioning, as long as you’re happy with the split sole, these are a awesome Zumba shoe.
