The Brooks PureConnect fit great. It has a good arch support. I have to order up 1 size in all Brooks shoes.

  • “would a minimalist type shoe be ok for aerobic classes?”
    Asked by kfleck from colorado on 8/22/2014 9:49:45 AM
    • Depends in the class, and your experience with Minimalist shoes. This one us far more comfortable than most, but you will still experience calf muscle tension. Ease in to them, and get ready to be using your butt, core and thighs more! They're a workout in themselves, and give you much better posture.

    • I have never done aerobics with these shoes and they feel very different than other running/athletic shoes. I think they will be OK. I have seen many people wear this particular shoes for different reasons. Some said it provides good arch support (agreed!) and some said they are very good walking shoes (maybe??). I think they will be OK.

    • Depends on how much bouncing your class does. I do everything in these shoes from walking, jogging, cycling, weight training, Zumba...so I'd say they may well be good for an aerobics class.

    • Maybe. The shoe is designed for a specfic running style -- a forefoot, rather than heel, strike. Think of sprinting when you run on the ball of your foot. If this kind of weight and balance shift mimics aerobic exercise in a class, it would work.

    • If you are going to be doing a lot of turning movements in a confined space, then I don't think they would be the best option for you. To me, they are more ideal for running/walking in a straight line. As comfortable as they are, and as much as I'd like to find a shoe this comfortable for working out, I wouldn't recommend going this route. Hope this helps :)

    • I think it depends upon the type of support you feel you need for aerobic classes. I wear orthotics and need a full support shoe, but I would entertain using a minimalist shoe for class if I could. To me, minimalist shoes make me feel like I am nearly barefoot, and I would never do an aerobic class with bare feet.

    • I wear mine to cross fit and have found that I love them!

    • I use them for aerobic exercise and they work fine. They are the most comfortable sneakers I have owned. They have a great arch and zero heel lift. They are perfectly flat which is what I need for my problem feet.

    • I would not recommend it. They are comfy to walk around in, great for treadmill running (I haven't taken them outside yet), but unless it was a fairly padded surface, I would go for a more shock absorbancy. But I could wear them around all the time. I LUV them.

    • Absolutely! These sneakers provide great support. Aerobics is usually medium impact, with dynamic movements and these sneakers are built to withstand high impact running for hundreds of miles. These sneaks will do the job easily.
