The Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost is available in men’s sizes which range from size 5 to 14, including half sizes. It generally runs true to size.

The Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost is a low-top skate sneaker with a full-length Boost cushioning in the midsole and a premium seamless suede upper with embroidered detail on the toe cap and on the side. It has gold Adidas branding on the side panels and on the tongue. The collar is thinly padded and fairly unstructured. The tongue of the Busenitz is distinctively prominent and can be worn in three ways – keep it that way, fold it over, or cut it off. The Busenitz Pure Boost is a sporty shoe that can function as an everyday shoe or for casual use.

The Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost features a full-length Boost cushioning for extra comfort and top-notch impact protection. It also features a premium suede upper with embroidered detailing, metallic gold accents, and a grippy rubber outsole. The tongue part is also relatively more prominent than the usual.

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 the 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.

  • This shoe is the first skateboarding shoe to use the Boost technology in the midsole.
  • The 10th-anniversary special features the number “06” on one heel and “16” on another to commemorate the special celebration.
