Adidas has always designed their skate shoes around functionality, and this new batch is no exception. We'll start with the Gonz:
This is the Adidas Gonz Pro:
- slip on construction
- suede uppers
- recessed eyelets
- molded vulcanized sole
- geo fit
It even has an elastic slit at the ankle for flick-ability, and it's sleek look makes this an instant classic. This shoe is an anomaly, really, because it's a slip on, but it has laces. Adidas calls it a molded sock liner. Then you add Gonz's name, it's gold. Could you have asked for a better skate shoe?
It's a slip on that's made to shred. It has a reinforced side for longer lasting flick, is comfortable, and has an interesting logo on the ankle slit that sets this shoe aside from anything you already own.
- Suede upper with leather heel tab
- Molded sockliner for cushioning
- Rubber outsole with Gonz-designed tread pattern
This is the Busenitz Vulc:
This shoe offers protection from toe shreddage, has padding to jump down something bigger that Reynolds, and is styling enough to wear through Europe.
- classic gum sole
- sleek soccer style design
- padded heel support
