Hip hop shoes are a unique type of shoe, that have really only been around for the last decade or so. When hip hop became really popular in the early 2000’s, the style of shoe that came along were something that people had never seen before.

Hip Hop Dance Shoes

Hip hop is a really popular style of dance that lots of people are taking up. Many dancers who you’ll talk to today will often tell you their style is a mix of hip hop and something else.

The shoes that have been made over the years for hip hop dancing by companies like Nike or Adidas are very stylish. Shoes in the hip hop industry are generally high tops. There all different but they usually feature a higher style of ankle support than your typical skate board style shoe.

Nike Air Force 1

The Air Force 1’s by Nike are one of the first shoes you could really call a “hip hop shoe”. They were influenced highly by the hip hop industry and even to this day we still see many artists and performers sporting the Air Force 1’s!

The Air Force 1 comes in just about every color you could imagine. They also come in many crazy and unique designs. This shoe has been customized hundreds of times, so the styles are limitless. It’s really hard to beat a classic shoe, not to mention a classic shoe made by arguably the most classic brand.

Supra Skytop


The Skytops are one of my favorite styles of shoe. They are extremely stylish and feature a unique style of high top. You will very often see people in the media and especially in the hip hop or the music industry wearing the Skytops by Supra. They are “in” right now and they have been for a few years now, with no signs of them going away anytime soon. The reason I personally really dig the Skytops is because they can be paired with just about any outfit. They come in many styles and colors so depending what one you own. you can wear them for just about any occasion. Whether it be casual or a classy look you are going for!
