Great Shoe for Hi Low Impact Cardio

This is a great shoe for hi low impact moves. It has great lateral stability. The majority of athletic shoes today do not have lateral stability. This shoe runs true to size. I am on my third pair of this shoe. I am hoping Avia continues to make a studio shoe and they don’t stop offering their shoes in a size 5 !!
Supportive, but a little stiff

I'm not in love with this shoe, but it is definitely functional and supportive. The heel is pretty narrow and very stiff and, accompanied with the inner gel sock, takes some effort to actually put on. The material is breathable, but also stiff. It fits true to size and cushions and supports well for a variety of directional movement and high impact.
Love the shoe -- not so much the sock liner

AVIA shoes have always been my favorite. They're comfy, durable, stylish (without being overboard). But they've gone to a new sock liner that is rubbery, and a socked foot won't slide into the shoe.
Does the Job for HIIT
Posted by Fitness Fanatic on Oct 11th 2017
I teach a HIIT music based class three times a week and these are my go to shoe. They hold my foot in snuggly and the cushion meets my needs for all the running and jumping in the class. I also have another pair that has held up for over a year. Too bad to see this shoe discontinued.
Love this shoe

I have used this shoe many times extensively and keep coming back to it. As a high intensity aerobic instructor for Jazzercise, this one is tops

Shoes are pretty comfortable for a new shoe - maybe a little stuff. Odd, but they are hard to put on. Takes a couple of tries because the inside is sticky and it bunches up your sock. The tongues are a little high and "cut" into the front of your ankle, so you need to wear at least ankle socks with them.

Drawbacks - Stiff at first and the shoe strings while likely designed not to slip are tough on the hands and hard to tighten up.
Positives - That being said, I have used nearly the same show to teach high impact aerobics for 10 years through Avia and it was discontinued. I had bought up 3 pair and used my last one and was in search of a replacement. Went to another brand, not happy. Came back and gave this one a try and seems like a great option. Love the high cut to help support ankle in side to side motion. I have flat feet so also looking for stability support and this shoe seems to provide that.
Good shoe for Hi-impact aerobic classes.

I love the GFC Studio Aerobic shoe. I teach Hi-lo impact aerobics, and they are perfect for that. The cushioning in the ball of the foot is great. I have bought 6 pairs of these shoes in different colors over the past few years. I highly recommend them if you do any impact aerobics.

I only use AVIA shoes. I usually end up buying the new model that is mid ankle, because I need lateral support. These shoes are great. They give just enough support without being constraining. I love how light they are, and that they come in appealing colors. I usually switch the insole for an AVIA high activity insole, or a plantar fasciitis insole to get even more shock absorption. I teach Jazzercise, and these will treat your feet and joints well for about 6 -12 months easily with frequent activity. If you don't use them as much, they probably last even longer.
