I don't know about your specific question, but 2 things that work for me and my students:

1. Reebok Zigs. Made for running and they do NOT slide like those other shoes, but I can pivot in them fine.

2. Slip-ons on any sneaker. Slides over the shoe. www.slip-ons.net - adjustable on the location you put them on your shoe which is nice for adjusting how slippy they are.

i've been back on my zumba dancing addiction (love it!) since i injured my knee dancing in the beginning of august (doc said minor dislocation, nothing too serious!)

i was wearing nike 'dance sneakers' (musiques) because i know for dancing like zumba you need special dance type shoes so they're not too "sticky" (to avoid knee issues when pivoting etc, which i wonder if my knee would have been WORSE if i wasnt wearing them! or maybe the nike ones just werent 'good enough'?)

anyways my 'mileage' for the nike ones just became overdue and it was time to get new dance sneakers... i ended up getting capezio's fierce... just got them today

and...

they are SLICK! i mean they are really REALLY 'slippery' - i mean in a way thats 'good' because it's easier on the knees, but.. i'm afraid it might be "too" slick and i'll end up doing a split without meaning to (LOL)

my question is - do any of you either know of a 'good' way to kind of rough up or scuff up the surface - not too much, just a 'lil', or would you recommend that i should maybe just return them and perhaps get another pair or the nike musiques that i have been using the past year?

Or are they really just better this way and I just need to 'get used' to them??

Anyways just really would value your thoughts, not sure if anyone has had any similar experience about 'possibly too slick' shoes!

thanks so much either way!
