A hybrid between the high and the low, the AJ1 Mid allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. It furnishes you with ample ankle support the High provides and the adaptability the Lows deliver. Although it continues to live behind the shadow of its taller and much pricier sibling, the Mids offer a hint of freshness into the familiar, well-loved silhouette. Simply put, you can't go wrong with the Mid version.

Best Nike

Building up a sneaker stack that’s as steal as the Sacai’s without spending much? Scoring Nike Waffle One that’s obtainable in multiple color choices could be a good starting point. This fresh recast to the Waffle trainer is almost hard-to-resist, from its see-through mesh webbing to its tasteful color blocking. A caveat though, its comfort level isn’t in any way squishy soft as most Nike React kicks.

The Adidas Busentiz has been around for a while. It stands on its own against modern skate shoes because of its durability and versatility. More than anything it's a really clean-looking sneaker that works just as well on a night out as it does in a skatepark. It helps that the shoe is easy to clean, sturdy and has loads of cushioning to keep you comfy and supported.

Best budget

The Nike Air Max 270 React might just be the closest to perfect that Nake’s got, in our humble opinion. Super comfortable, lightweight, and offered in a range of colorways, we just love it. While it may not be the most breathable shoe, that’s an easy sacrifice to make for the feel of React Foam and Air together. This is one of the Nike blends we can get behind.

In addition to its charming vintage appeal, it also offers comfort and performance by providing excellent cushioning and maintaining reliable traction.
