On its release, the Busenitz was so ubiquitous that it was rumoured among skate rats that the design's popularity had led adidas to bail on their deal with Dennis Busenitz and stop giving him a cut. That was about six years ago now and the shoe has now reached legend status in the skate realm – and I spose the rumours weren't true. Honouring the degree to which the shoe has killed it, adidas has revamped the shoe in their most premium materials, and consturucted it in their only German factory – the Scheinfeld. Big up'ing the German flag, the colourway has red and metallic gold accenting the black, full-grain leather – a material that, along with the shoe's prestigious origin, makes for a hefty price tag almost double the usual. Select adidas retailers and the adidas skateboarding website will have this Buse from December 18.
