Step Aerobics, Dance Aerobics Classes

7 posts in this topic

Anybody do aerobics classes, step, dance/salsa, jazzercise, whatever, and have a good shoe recommendation?

I used to do a lot of aerobics, but it's been a while and I currently only have running shoes so I need to get something more appropriate for aerobic/dance.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated :)

I won't promote a specific brand or style, as each person is different. Look for cross-trainers and shoes made specifically for aerobics. The heels on the running shoes have too much of a flange to facilitate the lateral movements used in aerobics. Good support and cushioning is a must. Your better brands cost more, but well worth the investment. Try lots on, (try the salesperson's patience - just don't "settle" for one that will work). Me, I swear by New Balance, but even then I try on different styles since they are different. Nike is good too, but then I have a long skinny foot and the lasts of these two brands seem to suit me fine. For me, Reeboks are out.

Hope this helps some.

I get a different brand, it seems, every time it's time for new ones. I agree with the advice above about trying them on. I walk around the store for a while with them on. If you're going to use them on a hard surface try to test them on a harder surface. I do mine at home, so the carpeted store is fine.

Just an update, I finally got my cross-trainers for the aerobics/dance classes and I went with the New Balance.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions/tips :)
