In 2006, Adidas signed pro skateboarder Dennis Busenitz as part of the growing Adidas Skateboarding Team along with the skateboarding legend Mark Gonzales. The Adidas Busenitz is his signature shoe which was initially inspired by the Adidas Copa Mundial, Busenitz’s personal favorite soccer cleat, and other soccer shoes like the Samba.
With growing different versions of the Busenitz silhouette, it also received a Pure Boost technology upgrade in the midsole in 2015. The Boost Technology was firstly used through the running shoe line of the brand but made its way through other Adidas shoe models as well. This new version of the Busenitz is known as the Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost which features a premium seamless suede upper material with embroidered detailing on the toe box and on the side panels, and gold Adidas branding on the side panels.
In 2016, the Adidas Busenitz celebrated its 10th anniversary and in celebration, a special release of the Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost in black and gold colorway was made.
