Extremely popular sneakers because of their price range, versatility when it comes to style, and freedom of movement. Almost everyone is guaranteed to have low-top sneakers in their shoe rotation.
Mid-top sneakers extend toward the ankle for a little more support and hold. These lie somewhere in the middle between low-top and high-top sneakers in terms of usage and popularity.
Sneakers with collars that go above the ankles for optimal hold and support are some of the most sought-after models in lifestyle shoes. Most of these shoes take their roots from basketball and have easily or fashionably crossed to mainstream wear.

Timberland Bradstreet Half Cab Chukka History
Although officially established in 1973, Timberland’s rich history can be traced way back to 1933. It started initially as the Abington Shoe Company that produced hand-stitched shoes for the wholesale market. In 1965, through founder Nathan Swartz, the company introduced a then-pioneering injection-molding technology into the industry that led to the creation of waterproof shoes, or boots in particular.
From then on, Timberland’s product line expanded to casual and boat shoes and, eventually, clothing and women's shoes as well when the brand further went into the international market. By the 1990s to 2000s, Timberland also included accessories and kid's shoes as into its lineup of products.
The brand maintained a solid stand in the footwear industry over the years. In 2013, it released the Timberland Earthkeepers Bradstreet Collection which includes shoes that took inspiration from a classic chukka model and enhanced its performance for optimum comfort and street-ready look.
One shoe in this collection is the Timberland Bradstreet Half Cab Chukka. It has a high-top boot with a Sensorflex sole and a nubuck leather upper. As part of the brand's commitment to the environment, this shoe also utilizes environment-friendly materials such as 100% organic cotton laces, recycled PET lining and footbed cover, Ortholite PU footbed that uses 5% recycled rubber, and the partly recycled (34%) rubber pods into the sole.
