well those are ideal shoes for shuffling, they're cheap, they last long, and they slide really nicely. Try not to use them on concrete, in fact, since you're only like a few months in, try not to shuffle on concrete just yet. If you do plan on it get a pair of converse or something that's a really simple shoe. The lighter the shoe the easier it is to shuffle. I use converse because they have almost no grip

This may be a wee late, but i just was wondering. I learnt the running man, "on my own" so to speak, when I was younger, and only now, do I realize I was/have been doing it wrong and I am trying to do it again from scratch, but I find it hard. Will I ever be able to learn how to do it properly, or am I doomed to a fail running man for life? I'm kinda self conscious about trying, because I feel dumb Embarassed

Cheers

i did the same thing and learned it wrong and no, itll take some practice and thought but go slow then work your way up to faster speeds, and you will get it right.

Hey shuffling jester lol! I started to work harder, and I seem to have gotten it down, which was very thrilling. But yeah, the t step for me feels easy, just its hard to get the speeds down for both. But practice makes perfect.

Yeah, I video tape myself shuffling sometimes, and when I try to speed up, everything just falls apart and I look rather "interesting" shall we say?

Keep it as a speed you feel comfotable at, then occasionally add faster and harder bits into it Very Happy

hahaha im still not as good as i would like to be to be called reasonable. but i enjoy to just let the music take me away. its like an escape, somepeople get into trouble i shuffle. Also i shuffle at school sometimes when i can. like down the hallways during a fee period or something.

Yeah, I do that stuff as well, but kids at my school call me a poser sometimes (though idk how loving shuffling makes you a poser) and also people are like "You can't do the running man? I learnt the LMFAO party rock shuffle in an hour" But yeah
