With its distinctive Copa Mundial undertones and its purpose-built profile, these throwback adidas Busenitz Vintage Shoes delve deep into the archives to revive a number of much-loved decals and trims to honour modern-day desire. Designed in collaboration with professional skater and admirable team-rider Dennis Busentiz, these low-profile suede skate-shoes are styled with a comfort-minded moulded Adiprene sockliner and a contoured padded GEOFIT collar for added boardfeel and responsiveness. The chalky-white cupsole with pivot point hosts an old-school sense of charm and character that pays homage to Busenitz’s original Pro design, whilst the reinforced single-track stitching across the toe box helps provide more rigid structuring across high-stress areas and flex-spots. Classic jagged-stripe decals decorate the neutral uppers in a refined shade of dark navy, whilst the flat cotton laces and the peachy interior lining help elevate the design with additional pops of subtle colouring. To commemorate this revitalised signature model, gold-foil ‘Busenitz’ scripture across the exterior side panel helps seal the design with its own unique sense of identity, whilst the unbranded navy-blue ankle tab and the shortened tongue pay tribute to both Busenitz and adidas’ admiration for more vintage-inspired aesthetics.
