Do you mean the "original" from way back in the day when they were used as basketball shoes? If so, then I'd say no. From what I could tell by the descriptions they're going to be less comfortable.
I ended up with a pair of high tops with some padding around the ankle and they're fine. They might have some cushioning but it's more like having memory foam inserts---once you compress it, it stays that way. I don't notice any give like with running or basketball shoes.
