The Adidas Busenitz is a unisex shoe that is available in men’s sizes only. Ladies who want to grab a pair are recommended to go one and a half size down for a better fit.

The skate shoe features a traditional lacing system and a padded heel for a snug and comfortable fit. Moreover, these features allow skaters to do flips on their skateboards without worries because the feet are securely in place, and it provides enough support and ankle protection. The low top design of the Adidas Busenitz also allows the ankle to move freely, making it easier to do tricks.

The soft suede designed sneaker by Adidas has a sleek and premium look. Because of this, it can be worn with almost anything.
