It’s Taco Tuesday so make sure you grab some Tacos for lunch today! For Taco Shoesday we’ll check out the popular Adidas Busenitz Shoe. Designed and tested by pro Skateboarder Dennis Busenitz, the design concept behind this shoe is taken from the Adidas Copa Mundial shoe that features a PU Sockliner, supportive GEOFIT collar cushioning, recessed eyelets, and a customizable tongue. A shoe that not only looks great while your wearing it, but gives you all the support you need while your skating and fits like a glove giving you the best board feel and overall support. I have a pair or two myself and your feet will thank you for stepping into these amazing shoes.
Thanks to everyone who submitted something! There were so many good ones…(and a few bad ones) but we could only pick one. Congratulations Adrian Chavez! Active and Adidas thought yours was the best one. You win a free pair of Adidas!

Out of all of the shoes that Adidas has produced, the most impressive is the Dennis Busenitz Pro. The design was inspired by a few of Dennis’ favorite old school Adidas soccer/football cleats. But don’t be fooled, the shoe was designed to be efficient for skateboarding, see video below. Its low profile outsole allows for maximum board feel. Another unique feature is the tongue; you can leave it flared out, or customize the shoe and cut it off. Get on these!!
Who do you think has the smoothest style in skateboarding? We listed a few of our favorites below… Let me know yours and I’ll put him on the list! …oh, and don’t worry, you’ll be able to rip on plenty of people next week when we post who has the sketchiest style…
It looks like Adidas released a new video but it’s not available in the US yet. I came across Dennis Busenitz part and just had to post it. It’s always fun to watch Busenitz skate. He skates at light speed and has ripping style. Can’t wait to see the rest of the video… Salis, Benny Fairfax, the Gonz, should be good. Check it out!
