Fit & Sizing
This Busenitz Pro model has an arrow-shape toebox as inspired by the Copa Mundial soccer shoe, thus this pair is a little bit narrow compared to other skateboard shoes of Adidas. It has well cushioned insole and heels are slightly elevated than the toe and the collar lining has the very soft foam GeoFit. The Adidas Busenitz Pro is being offered in men’s size and available in 6.5 to 12.5 US.
Adidas Busenitz Pro Style
Stylists and conventional thrashers have come up with ways on how to style their Busenitz Pro pair by altering the remarkable long tongue. The first is simply by wearing it and keeping the tongue as it is. Second is by folding the long tongue and tie the lace behind or over the folded tongue. And the third way is to cut the tongue along the outline provided.
This Busenitz Pro pair is also a little pointy which makes it perfect for flip tricks. Thrashers usually pair these pointy sneakers with baggy jeans, oversized tees and a trucker hat. This design has safely crossed the bridge that discerns the sports wear from the casual wear.
Adidas Busenitz Pro History
Adidas has developed to become one of the biggest manufacturers of sports apparel since they started way back in 1949. In the middle 1990s, they commenced their Skateboarding Footwear line which is composed of various team riders. This line was reintroduced in mid 2000s, and named it Adidas Skateboarding with solid team members, namely Mark Gonzalez, Tim O’Connor and Dennis Busenitz.
Dennis Busenitz, is a 31-year-old professional skater, who used to live in Munich, Germany. He has been photographed many times using a soccer jersey for endorsements and that only showed that he is into football sports. When Adidas tapped Busenitz to become a part of their Skateboarding line, his only conditions were to use a cupsole instead of a vulcanized shoe because he wanted to be different from most of the other existing shoes at that time. Most of all, he wanted a soccer-based shoe as a big part of the project.
He was involved in the conceptualizing and designing part and took inspiration from his favorite soccer cleat and transformed it into a street-ready skate shoe. He created an arrow-shaped toebox and the stitching in the front foot area, a layout motivated by the football classic shoe Copa Mundial.
