Inspired by an adidas Originals design originally intended for squash from the 1980s, the latest iteration of Busenitz’s signature skate shoe features a number of high-performance enhancements and a streamlined aesthetic. Flexible perforated suede across the upper delivers breathability without sacrificing durability; nylon overlays and a canvas tongue further contribute to the proposition’s improved comfort and ride. Board control and feel is also addressed in the skate imprint’s next design via a herringbone-reminiscent tread pattern that’s complemented by cup-sole pods in the center of the outsole. Aesthetics-wise, roman numerals “X” and “V” are stitched onto left and right heels, respectively, and given a bold red look. The remainder of the shoe is left to sport a classic black and gold color scheme that cements Busenitz’s time riding with adidas in history.
