Where to Buy Dance Shoes

June 16th, 2009


I did it. I broke down and bought a pair of Nike Musique IV dance shoes for Zumba.

There are a wide variety of dance shoes available online, but I had been hesitating about making a purchase. I personally don’t like to buy shoes online for several reasons:

1. I like to try shoes on.
2. I don’t like to pay for shipping.
3. I’m afraid I won’t get around to making returns.
4. I rent an apartment, which can make receiving shipments difficult.

So last week, when I found a pair of Nike Musique IV dance shoes on a clearance rack at Famous Footware, I decided it was time to buy. The pair of dance shoes I found are metallic grey and cool blue – a little more flashy than I would like, but you get what you pay for. I paid $40, which is about a 30% discount off the $60 regular price.

My advice for those of us who are not online bargain hunters, watch for dance shoes on clearance racks at stores like Famous Footware, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, or regular sporting goods stores. They are out there and you will find them, sooner or later…

    Good question, Dan! I will have to do some research and get back to you on that one. Stay tuned…

    I think Capezio athletic dance shoes are your best bet for Zumba. Capezio is a very well respected brand of dance shoe and they offer men’s sizes.

    My favorite is the Capezio Rockit because it looks less like a dance shoe and more like an athletic shoe. The Rockit is a men’s dance shoe.

    Another good option is the Capezio Toggle. The reviews are good and a couple of reviews actually are people buying these shoes for Zumba. Toggles are unisex.

    Here are a couple of links to Zappos.com. I will write a post with more information about Zumba shoes for men as well.
