cardio kickbox sneakers?

i just started taking cardio kickboxing at my gym. the floors are carpeted and my running sneakers seem to stick in the carpet keeping me from pivoting and all that. i did some google searches but i couldn't really find the answer... is there such a thing as sneakers designed for taking cardio kickbox classes at the gym? brand name suggestions are appreciated!

You can try boxing shoes (look that up online and you'll get lots of hits). These work well in martial arts classes and might be okay in a cardio kickboxing class. They don't provide a lot of support or cushioning but they are super easy to move in.
Hope this helps!

sneakers for swing / lindy hop dancing have a smooth sole, and they even have a "spin spot" on the ball for pivoting. PLUS, you can get them in black and white saddle shoe designs -- you'll be da bomb!
