One of the number questions I get after my classes is, “What kind of shoes do you recommend for zumba?” This question could go for any cardio class that has cross movements. i.e: side to side, turning, kicking, etc. Here are the criteria you should look for in a Cardio/Studio shoe. Smooth sole, narrow in width, lightweight and of course, comfortable.
The shoe that I am currently wearing is the Ryka Studio D in gray. I have absolutely loved this shoe and know many others who love it as well. It is currently $59.95 and sold on Zappos.com. I was researching Rykas today and found that they have come out with a new shoe! The Ryka Sync is their brand new studio shoe. It is sold for $79.95 and also found on Zappos.com. I am looking forward to trying this out! Pictured below are both shoes (Studio D in black).
