I'm glad that I read the reviews before purchasing ... the shoes themselves are very comfortable and I really enjoy the spinning support on the ball of the foot. However, the shoes run small - I needed 1 1/2 sizes larger than what I normally order. Other than that they are comfortable and a great buy.
I'm a Salsa Dancer and was looking for a sneaker that would allow me to perform spins easily. I've worn them several times at different venues and they're fantastic! I used to dance in regular (everyday) sneakers but found that performing multiple turns was almost impossible (too sticky, especially on non-wood floors). A few of my favorite leads have noticed the difference in my turns and really like it as well! I'm still adjusting to the spin spot!
I teach Zumba and spent months looking for the right shoe. I wear a 9.5 regularly - Bloch size 11 fits perfectly.
These shoes offer my foot the right amount of support and cushion without needing inserts. They're also super light. Pivots are a dream - no pull on the knees or hips at all.
When my feet and shins start to burn, I know it's time for a new pair. I can get between 6 and 8 months of use depending on how many classes I'm teaching/taking and on what kind of surface.
I cannot comment on the comfort or durability of this shoe because I have yet to order a size that fits. I'm on my 3rd try getting the right size. The sizing description says to get your street shoe size or 1/2 size larger. I got the 1/2 size larger, too small, sent it back, went a whole size larger and am sending those back today. So now I'm up to a size and a 1/2 larger. Hopefully, this will do the trick. It is, however, a good looking shoe.
