High-top wedges have had their fashionable moment, but it looks like this trend has circled back to where it started: the world of athletics. Once your dance-cardio and gym buddies see you rocking one of these hip pairs, they'll be coveting retro kicks of their own!
Reebok Dance Urleads
Whenever I'm wearing my Reebok Dance Urlead Mids  ($85), my feet turn heads. They're my go-to pair of shoes for any high-impact dance workout. If you're a fellow cardio dance enthusiast, read my full review  on these sweet sneaks.
A tricked-out pair of the Ryka Downbeats  ($80) are high-performance trainers that allow for plenty of breathability and air flow. The soles also provide minimal grip, making them ideal for studio workout classes. I could definitely see myself rocking these at hip-hop.
An old-school classic gets some feminine flair in these Adidas GLC Shoes  ($80, originally $100). A molded foot strap helps stabilize your ankle to keep your feet safe when you're on the dance floor.
Most of the fitness high-tops out there are designed for dance and studio classes, but these Nike Free 2 Run SneakerBoots  ($100, originally $125) are for ladies who want to hit the pavement and run! With a barefoot-like feel and a Winter-boot height, these sneakers are perfect for the season.
