Reynolds Mids if you can find them on clearance/discount...worth $90 considering how durable they are.

I never liked Etnies, til now.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Been hunting for a good mid, that's an actual real mid, not a below the ankle bone mid as I need ankle bone coverage but don't need/want a hi. Cons one stars look to be the right height, vans mids too but there has to be more out there.

I'd have jumped on the Smith DC but it's all canvas.

They are a hair lower too.....I skate Huf classics too and they are a proper height....

Cons Pro leather mid. I've had several pairs and really like them, I even found a few pairs at the cons outlet recently for $25. Just a heads up though they run a bad size to full size up so if you wear a 10 buy a 9.5 or 9.

ok so one more post, i looked and for future reference heres what i found






not much unfortunatly  but i might be missing some

Out of these shoes I've skated the dunks, Ellingtons, and crocketts. Dunks are dunks you know what you're getting but the ankle cut on the Ellington is super low, I would barely call it a mid. Crocketts are NOT cupsoles idk if vans has changed the wafflecup formula with their new models but I have the crockett mids and those shits are more like a thick vulc in the heel than they are cupsole. Decent shoe but cushioning is weak if you're actually used to skating cupsoles.

Reynolds mid is great too tho I skated like 3 pairs in a row when they first came out I think I even did a review on them. Super durable and solid cushioning. A little thicker in the forefoot than the other shoes including dunks but that's not neccessarily a bad thing once you break them in and get used to them.

Im currently skating some P.Rod 7 HI's which are great but getting harder and harder to find

Are dunk mids officially out of the picture??? Those were the cleanest best cupsole mids I ever skated..... Nike really destroyed and butchered the dunk. The new lows look freaking AWFUL and the highs werent the best shoe to skate in really..... I guess RIP dunks....

In other news the Accel OGs are everywhere and  pretty easy to find cheap. Best cupsole ever made EVER but I cant speak for the midtop.

They put support in the right places and add rigidity into the shoe making it just enough for my feet to handle....I can skate a chuck or a blazer....huf classic etc.....they are like $250.00 but I can switch em around into other shoes.

You're right.  I thought G6 was emerica's cupsole stuff and the pics of the bottom of the sole didn't look vulcanized.

There are some shitty, thin cupsoles out there, so just be weary. I ended up with a pair of Remind Medic insoles, they're incredible. I tried a bunch of FP's and didn't like them. These Reminds though, super supportive, no need to bake, etc...

The heel is a cupsole, the forefoot is vulc. It really is a true hybrid.
