Haul: New Balance Sneakers

3 years ago

Since I attend zumba classes, I have always been on the lookout for a pair of sneakers that would be suitable for the class but would also be suitable for my feet. Nearly 1 ½ years ago I was taking trips to dance shoe/accessories stores looking for dance shoes many folks who take zumba wear. Low and behold those shoes are NOT made for me. I need a nice sole to my shoe or Im going to injure myself or aggravate my bone spurs to the point walking is difficult. After coming up empty handed time after time I essentially gave up my search and continued taking classes wearing my regular Nike sneakers (which I adore).

Unfortunately my Nikes were not made for a gym class floor. The treads on my sneakers would grip the floor which frankly theyre designed to do, but when Im swiveling around and trying to do dance foot movements, it becomes increasingly difficult. Ive twisted my knee a few times thanks to my sneakers gripping the floor and my knee going in the opposite direction. So finally, after being afraid of breaking/tearing something I decided to get back on the zumba shoe train.

After extensive research for a few weeks I narrowed my shoe search down to a few specific pairs Nike and New Balance. But after going to the Nike outlet I opted to look for the Nike Musique which I was told was available on their website. Sadly, I could not find them anywhere so I went onward with New Balance. In town we have a New Balance store, so I went and browsed around. The womens options were not available for me (not in stock and Im too impatient to wait/order), so I went with the mens department.

I picked up a pair of Revlite Trainers and I absolutely LOVE them! Theyre comfortable, they fit and theyre just a great dance shoe. Im able to move around without my feet sticking to the wood floor. The one downside I need to find a good pair of shoe inserts that can provide a bit more cushioning under the pad of my foot, near my toes. Again, foot issues but once I find those, Ill be perfectly set!

BTW! Great news! My feet have gone down another WHOLE size! I had been buying the same ole size of sneakers because they were comfortable but now I know the true size of my feetsies!
