Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Busenitz Vulc RX has the GeoFit technology on the collar which provides superb comfort and lockdown fit. It also has a molded EVA sockliner for protection and support during the impact.
This sneaker has the traditional lace-up closure for a secure fit. The heel collar is protruded and acts as the pull tab for easiness in taking on this pair. The Adidas Busenitz Vulc RX generally runs true to size. It is available in men’s sizes from size 4 to 14 in medium width.
The Adidas Busenitz Vulc RX retained the striking long tongue. This feature makes the Busenitz line remarkable over the other SB shoes. Adidas allows its wearers to personalize the length of the tongue. They placed a dotted line along the tongue which serves as the guide on where to cut.
The iconic T-toe of the classic original Samba can also be seen in the Busenitz Vulc RX. This feature became notable especially for sneaker fans and thrasher who prefer classic pairs while cruising on and off the board.
Adidas Busenitz Vulc RX History
Since 1949, Adidas has been known worldwide to be one of the largest creators of quality sportswear. They started the Skateboarding Footwear line in the 90s in collaboration with various skateboarders. They reintroduced this line in the middle of 2000 and named it the Adidas Skateboarding. This shoe line is composed of solid team members, which includes the elite skateboarders Mark Gonzalez, Tim O’Connor, Lucas Puig, Mark Sucui and Dennis Busenitz.
The Adidas Skateboarding branch usually re-engineers old classic models to create a shoe that has skateboarding features. The well-celebrated Stan Smith model, or at least one of its myriad of variations, is one example of the recreated shoes to suit SB activities.
Dennis Busenitz is a German professional skater who was able to establish his name in the Skateboarding world. Adidas tapped him to be a part of their Skateboarding line. From the start, he was very much involved in conceptualizing his shoe line and wanted to be different from the other SB shoes.
Busenitz is a great fan of football sport. In fact, his first shoe collaboration with the Adidas was inspired by this favorite cleat, Copa Mundial. Just recently, Dennis Busenitz doesn’t seem to slow down in creating radical skate shoes using a soccer silhouette.
Adidas released the Busenitz Vulc RX in early 2017 fresh off the celebration of the 10-year partnership with Busenitz. This upgraded version was inspired by the iconic football shoe, the Samba. It was re-imagined to perfectly suit the skateboarding needs.
