I tried several different brands of shoes and nothing worked. I finally switched things up with my socks and finally found relief. I admit there were times even the socks didn't fully protect my feet from the blisters. I stopped searching for better shoes because everything I tried left me feeling sore and frustrated.
When Reebok sent me a pair of the Cardio Ultra shoes, I was skeptical. They are specifically designed for my high impact workouts. They feature a wider base for more ground contact and medial arch support made to support my foot while I bounce through songs. There is also tri-layer foam to cushion the balls of my feet where I am most prone to develop blisters.
The first thing I noticed when I slipped on the Cardio Ultra shoes was all of the support around my ankle thanks to the Adaptamove technology that naturally cradles my foot during multidirectional movements. I have been recovering from an ankle injury and this shoe is low-cut enough to support my ankle without pushing right on it causing pain. I noticed that I can flex my feet without the shoes hitting any part of my ankle and that's a key factor in being able to move better during my Zumba® fitness workouts. I can perform squats without my shoes limiting my movements.
The first thing everyone notices about these shoes are the beautiful shades of yellow. They're eye catching and cheerful! I love that my Zumba® fitness students can clearly focus on my feet during our workouts together.
I have really tried my best to put these shoes to the test. I've amped up my workouts just to see what these shoes can withstand. I have not experienced one blister or sore foot. There has been no break in period for these shoes. There were comfortable from the moment I slipped them on and have been since.
