As a Zumba instructor, I’ve owned many pairs of athletic dance shoes for Zumba. My favorites have always been Nike brand so I have to ask:
Why Nike? Why do you continue to discontinue the best athletic dance shoes for Zumba?
First to disappear was the Nike Musique IV with mesh uppers. The Nike Musique athletic dance shoes that continue to exist consist of stiff, leather uppers that look like silly cheerleader shoes. No thank you.
The last pair of shoes I bought for Zumba were Nike Huarache. I bought them in March and after just 3 months of use, I noticed both shoes already had small holes in the fabric on top of my foot near my little toes. Time to buy another pair, right? Wrong!
It appears Nike Huarache athletic dance shoes are no longer available.
And so again, I am searching for the best shoes for Zumba.Filed under Zumba, exercise | Tags: aerobic, aerobics, athletic shoes, Dance, dance shoes, Fitness, group, group fitness, huarache, leather, mesh, musique, Nike, nike huarache, nike musique, shoes, Zumba, zumba gold, zumba instructor, Zumba shoes | Comment (0)
I grew up in Northwestern Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!), but I recently moved to Duluth, Minnesota from the Twin Cities metro area.
Other day, while out for a run, I thought to myself, “The air is better here…”
Better than the air on the busy streets of the Twin Cities? Definitely. Better than air in the beautiful countryside of rural Wisconsin? I hesitantly decided yes.
There is something refreshing about the air in Duluth. It feels good to breathe in Duluth. The air is fresh – I feel like I’m the first one to breathe this air as it rolls up the hills from Lake Superior.
Small size, remote location, and cold weather conspire to make Duluth one of only seven cities in the U.S. to make it on the list for both lowest year-round particle pollution and ozone levels.
Other cities that make the list according to the American Lung Association’s 2011 annual State of the Air report? Cheyenne, WY; Santa Fe, NM; Bismarck, ND; Great Falls, MT; Honolulu, HI; Anchorage, AK; Amarillo, TX; Redding, CA; Duluth, MN; and Fargo, ND. They all sound like great places to me.

The CSS DPT program starts in June for first-year students and I think I know why: Despite being warned about the harsh winter months in the treacherous hills of Duluth, I have had the pleasure of discovering for myself that summer months in Duluth are absolutely beautiful.
And I mean BEAUTIFUL!
So to help myself through the long winter on Lake Superior, I am starting this series of blog posts to list reasons why it’s great to live in Duluth, Minnesota.
