The pivot dot on the sole is awesome.
I knew this was a dance shoe and bought it specifically for the pivot on the sole as I kickbox on the carpet at my gym. It works perfectly for pivoting while doing back-to-back kicks. The bright color also makes me smile. I do have to admit that there is very little cushion in the shoe. When I did my jump kicks, I have to admit my feet hurt for hours afterwards but since it is made for dance, and I understand that I purchased it for a different purpose, I am not disappointed. But again, the ability to pivot on the carpet was most excellent - I will just buy insoles to give me more cushioning for my jumps.
