Default Re: Low Tops vs High/Mid Tops

Here's what i heard, yes but that not the end of it all.

No matter what you do, there is impact felt everytime you make a step. High tops may protect your ankle from the force (since it keeps them relatively fixed, imagine the protection you get from a seatbelt) but it just transfers all the impact to other parts of the leg, i.e. your knee.

Low tops expose your ankle for more mobility, but since tHe ankle is closer to your foot than your jnee, it takes most of the impact.

I like high tops for ball but wear low tops on other sports to strengthen my ankle
