Adidas Busenitz ADV Skate Shoes - black/metallic gold/university red
These are honestly some of the best shoes I've ever skated. They have good cushion, and still have great board-feel for more tech stuff. They have been going strong for a few weeks of hard skating now too. I just used a little glue on the ollie spot to stop holes.

Adidas Busenitz ADV Skate Shoes
Once it's broken in, this is a cupsole that flexes like a vulc. The fit is snug, however; I'd suggest ordering whatever your normal size for a cupsole. The grip on the outsole is amazing–no slippage, and the flick lasts. The "raised" heel doesn't bother me, and I like how the whole shoe lends itself to ergonomical skating (i.e. the stripes are texturized for additional grip). I prefer skating cupsoles in the summer, since it helps the rubber break in faster, which might take a minute, depending on how frequently you skate. The only thing that took some getting used to was the length/width ratio. The shoe looks a tad long on my feet, as my neurotic snobbery prefers some width.
After skating the Pro and Vulc I had to try these and glad I did, everything about them is awesome just like the others-but there almost too nice that you don't wanna jack em up skating em, but I did and they didn't disappoint.
I love these shoes. I've had all the other busenitz, but these are by far my favorite. With the extra 10 dollars on the price tag, I got some of the most durable leather I've skated. I've been skating them for around 2 weeks, and done probably like 200 tre flips - and they're barely wearing down on the toe.
I must tell you I'm nearly 60 & I bought these shoes and others from Tactics because I like the look of the shoe. When I have called them to ask about sizing etc, these folks are extremely knowledgeable & have always been correct. I like to support a local business & they are in Eugene, Oregon. Thank you Tactics staff!!
Does this shoe fit a bit long or a bit short? I usually where an 11 but there is only 10.5 and 11.5 in your stock.

They fit pretty true to size.

Do these have good board feel like the previous busenitz?
by Kyle R
They do offer decent board feel for a cupsole. However, if board feel is high priority for you I would look into the Busenitz Vulcs. Vulcanized skate shoes are going to offer a lot more board feel then cupsole skate shoes. However, cupsole shoes are going to be a lot more supportive.
