IS THE NIKE FREE 3.0 STUDIO DANCE THE IDEAL SHOE FOR FITNESS? LET'S MAKE THE TEST!
15. OCTOBER 2014Author:
In blogs, Facebook groups or Instagram, the following question is often asked:
What shoes are good for one hour of Zumba or other studio workouts? What qualities do they have?
I put the Nike 3.0 Studio Dance to the test to see if they are the ideal shoe according to their name. The important points for me are the pivot points on the sole, the suitability for different floor coverings as well as the body's response after a training session (for example, knee pain).
My first impression
At first glance, I must say that I was very impressed with the aesthetics of the Studio Dance because it has a shiny colour and the fabric has classic and elegant looks despite its sporty nature.
Once you try the shoes you could wear them all day because they adapt to your feet perfectly and gives one a sense of freedom.
I tested the shoes specifically for the following sport and dance activities: Each 60 minutes Zumba, BBP, step, aerobics and light jogging. After a while you realize that the front toe is enclosed with a slightly harder material and they fit snugly against the sides. The result is a very slim/slender appearance of the feet - a plus point for women with big feet (like me with 41) because the feet look smaller and narrower J.
The shoe offers the following advantages:
Features of the Nike Free 3.0 Studio Dance
One of the causes of knee pain is the wrong shoes that slip too much when running or performing fitness dance steps. The Nike 3.0 Studio Dance have perfect soles for almost all floor coverings, in the gym, dance studio or club (parquet, laminate, PVC, etc).
The three pivot points in the bottom of the sole (indicated by the black circles) have proven to be very effective. They facilitate the rotation of the shoes which enables a clean movement of execution so that the knees are relieved.
The shoe provides a sense of stability and flexibility at the same time.
Due to the soft upper material the shoes are not ideal for sport activities which use sudden directional changes (such as squash). They are not great for practicing sports with a lot of jumping elements (at least for beginners) because the sole, although very mobile, is also very thin and offers little shock adsorbing qualities. Fortunately there are a wide range of alternative Nike shoes ! ;-)
For my Zumba, BBP and aerobic workouts these shoes are my first choice and the price-performance ratio is spot on. The look is great as well!
By the way Nike Free are not only suitable for fitness training but are also available as running shoes:

The skis are delivered with the mounted but not yet set binding and are not yet ready to be used for winter sports. Before the first use, the binding must be set by a professional or by a specialist sports shop assistant. The ski must be set according to the age, gender, weight, ski boot size and experience level of the skier. The skier runs a great risk of injury if the ski is not set and checked with a ski service machine. Please click here to confirm that you have read and understood this safety notice. We would also like to inform you that we cannot accept the return of any skis that have been personalised, refined or altered through binding. Any products ordered in conjunction with the ski (such as winter clothing) may, of course, be returned.
