Top 10 Mid-Top Sneakers

By

Mid tops are sneakers that aren't too high at the ankle, but aren't too low either. Mid tops rise just up to the ankle level, offering less restriction and ample ankle mobility. Check out these comfy finds.

1. Nike Dunk SB Mid

Who’s got love for Nike SB Dunk Mids? The VERY popular Nike Dunk SB (skateboarding) is a slight variation on the original Dunk, released in 1985. Designed with the skater in mind, the Nike Dunk SB has a fat tongue and a Zoom Air insole. These improvements add comfort for the casual wearer and the skateboarder alike. The Nike Dunk SB craze has only grown bigger with the limited production on many SB colorways, including the highly sought after Supa, Supreme, Pigeon and Mulder models. Just to name a few.
