It's no secret that APL has become the trendiest fitness brand on the market (and they deserve that title). At POPSUGAR, our editors are obsessed with APL sneakers — they're both cute and functional, a combination that's often hard to find. I have always loved the brand's well-known Techloom Phantom shoes, but there's another style that perfectly fits my needs.

The APL Ascend TechLoom Mesh Sneakers ($257) are designed to be a training shoe; they're excellent for gym workouts, weightlifting, and agility training. What I really love about them is the high cut around the ankle. If you have weak ankles or just prefer more support, these are the kicks you need to try.

The upper hugs your foot without suffocating it, giving you an ideal fit that also keeps your ankle in place. The shoe features APL's signature Propelium midsole that provides you with plenty of cushion and absorbs shock. When I wear them, the sneakers feel very lightweight, so I never feel like anything is holding me back.

If you buy these shoes, I suggest going a half size up for a comfortable fit. Though I'm partial to the millennial pink shade, these sneakers come in all sorts of colours on APL's site.

As a sneaker addict, I promise you that this pick is worth every cent. I am truly obsessed with mine and can't wait to invest in more options. Get them ASAP, they tend to sell out quickly.
