Sorry! When I ordered they only had the bright red left in my size. Needless to say, these stay home.

They have a later version (3) in my size at Endless.com. I may order them tonight before they disappear! Unfortunately no one has reviewed them yet.

Sherry

ETA: I placed the order. They should arrive next Tuesday. I hope they fit. I'd like to use them for Petra Kolber's dance workouts as well as Zumba.

Black Capezio dance sneakers. Maybe in awhile, I can live without them for now.

I swear by my Nike Mystique's. But on carpet, I just took an old pair of Nike's (I love my Nikes, in case you can't tell, but you can do this with any shoe) and put duct tape on the ball of the foot to allow for spinning.

I have Bloch's and while they are cute, cute, cute, I find my arches ache after using them for dance workouts. (Rockin' Body, Zumba, Cardio Axe). I presume it's because these types of sneakers don't support your arches at all, rather they are suspended between the heel & forefoot.

I wear Ryka cross trainers now, but I might try Nike Musiques instead.

I am shopping for one. I made a mistake of doing Zumba Exhilarate on carpet with just my socks. My knees hurt after that.

Christine,
That's a good suggestion to put duck tape under the soles of a pair of cross trainers.

I use orthotics in my dance shoes to help with that problem.

I wear Ryka Transition for dance workouts. They're flexible yet supportive, cushioned, and have a pivot point for easy turns on carpet.

Oooooh! Cool idea! Do you use regular orthotics (i.e. Dr. Scholls) or custom ones?
