Running shoes are just too heavy and thick soled when you want to cut the rug to get your sweat on. You need a shoe designed with dancing in mind — a shoe made to pivot and spin. The ideal dance aerobic shoe should also offer cushion for the high-energy routines that make you wanna jump, jump!
The new Gel-Namoi 2 ($85) by Asics is the answer. It's lightweight and flexible, but the gel heel helps soften high-impact moves. Lace up these sneakers to get your groove on; they're especially danceable for Zumba.
