The adidas Busenitz Classified is an upgraded version of a popular silhouette. It’s like adding an extra topping (avocado maybe?) to your favourite burger – what was already good becomes next-level great (although perhaps not for all palates). The Three Stripe technicians take the modern-day skate classic and switch out portions of the usual suede construction for coarse canvas, instantly adding a little sophistication to the soccer-influenced sneaker. Nudging the colourway dial towards ‘suave’ rather than ‘street’, the Busenitz dons a charcoal upper matched by primo leather stripes in autumnal auburn. Finished with a gum rubber outsole and some gold metallic branding, the Classified offers a grown-up take on a staple.
