Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost Primeknit Style
The low-top Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost Primeknit delivers a modernized take on of their famous signature sneaker. It displays a clear-cut monochromatic shoe with support at the right areas for an all-day comfort. It also showcases the signature long and wide tongue that adds style to this shoe.
Although it displays a hardcore skating silhouette, this shoe is designed apt for the lifestyle wear. Many buyers use their Busenitz Pure Boost Primeknit with joggers, jeans, shorts and even with their activewear.
Aside from the signature flat, wide and long tongue of the Busenitz line, one of the striking features of the Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost Primeknit is the absence of the golden “Busenitz” typescript on the side of the shoe. Also, some buyers noted about the wavy three stripes on the toebox that resembles ripples of water. This striking feature adds subtle branding of the Three Stripes.
Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost Primeknit History
Adidas, together with some skateboarders all around the globe, started the Skateboarding Footwear line in the early 90s. The brand re-launched the line and named it as the Adidas Skateboarding in the mid-2000s. This SB project involves some of the best skaters, like Mark Gonzalez, Mark Suciu, Tim O’Connor, Lucas Puig and Dennis Busenitz. This line usually takes cues from the impressive archive of the Three Stripes and re-engineers it to suit the skateboarding needs.
Meanwhile, Dennis Busenitz, a German skater who grew up in Kansas and moved to San Francisco, started to establish his status in the skateboarders’ world. Adidas added him to their SB line and commissioned him to envision, design and conceptualize footwear that will match his style.
His original signature shoe was launched in 2006 and was inspired by his favorite soccer cleat Copa Mundial. The first Busenitz features the long and wide tongue that gives the wearer’s an option to cut by providing a dotted line that will serve as a guide when cutting it.
A decade after the initial launching of the Busenitz in the market, Adidas decided to fuse the Boost technology with this skate shoe. This athletic shoe officially crossed the casual scene, seamlessly. A year after, Adidas made another upgrade to this iconic silhouette. Replacing the suede material, the Three Stripes uses the contemporary Primeknit material for a more breathable and lightweight sneaker.
