|Nike Shox for Dancing|
I tried on the Merrell's and liked how flexible and lightweight they were and how the support in the arch and mid-foot, but after a few minutes the outsides of my feet started to ache, and that was just standing and walking in them. My Aunt works at REI and when I told her I liked the barefoot shoes but didn't think they'd work for my flat feet she convinced me to try the Brooks Pure Connect running shoes. They are a minimalist shoe which seems to be a trend lately, very lightweight and flexible, and a little bit more supportive and shock absorbing than the merrells. This video kind of gives you an idea about them.
I'm not sure how these are going to work out yet, but I'm holding out hope (if only for the fun color!). I did a workout in them today and my feet ached about halfway through the class, but they did that with my Nike's before too. I wonder if it's just a matter of getting used to them and breaking them in. I'm going to give them a few more classes before I decide if they're going to work for Zumba.
