You ever seen a kid with new sneakers. You knowthat hilariously adorable “LOOK WHAT I CAN DO” thing they do when they immediately want to show you just how fast they can run because they got new shoes?Yeah, that was TOTALLY ME when my package arrived from Reebok!! My daughter and I both squealed “SAH-WEEET”!!!
I got new dancin’ shoes! And yes I did try to see if they made me dance better!!! This girl was about to be on FIYAH!!!
As a FitFluential Ambassador, I was selected to review the new UR Lead dance sneaker by Reebok. Reebok sent these awesome sneakers for me test out in my Zumba fitness classes as part of their Live With Fire campaign. And like I said, I was that kid ready to move at lightening speed. All I needed was a spark and I was ready to rock the stage, get the fire started and own it. Cuz I had sweet sneakuhs! True story, when I tied them on, I sort of heard the song “here come the hot steppas” playin’ in my head! And yes it gave me just tad bit more pep in my step when I walked through the doors of the gym!
The shoes themselves are extremely light weight so the transitions in a dance fitness class seamless. The little ‘dancers pivot’ on the ball of the shoes allows your foot to turn, stomp, twist and well, move. Whether it was a smooth salsa, the gritty hip-hop moves or the firm footing & grip during the fitness moves, my feet felt like they were on clouds. In a class with sudden direction changes, quick stops & more stops and every intensity level known to man, protecting your feet means protecting your knees.
I get that question from so many people wondering what’s the best shoe for a dance fitness class. Honestly, this shoe is well on it’s way to reaching the top of the list. Aside from the construction & technology of the shoe, the colors are HOTTT. I mean, most supportive sneakers aren’t so fashionable, and vise versa. And most dance specific sneakers are so chunky they usually aren’t your first choice of shoe.
The Reebok UR LEAD comes in Mid and low top in awesome colors that are bound to spark some kinda fiyah! Recently at a Zumbathon I bumped into a few sneaker sistahs rockin’ the Reebok UR Lead in every color! We immediately pointed at our shoes, screamed and hugged each other. (cheesy I know, but hey we were in the moment). Anyway, I’ve included the official technology of the shoe and some cool footage on how the shoes are designed specific for dance. If you’re looking for dance fitness sneakers, it’s UR Lead, go ahead and move like you Live With Fire!
