Offered at around $80 USD per pair, this shoe is on the higher end of the skate shoe price spectrum, but then again, it's considerably worth the price given its durability and comfort. It looks like an instant classic. That's why when I find deals online, I took advantage of it like this one from Adidas.
The Adidas Busenitz Core Black / Solid Grey will now cost you only $40. Cool eh? I already bought mine as it's one of my favorite shoes for skate boarding. This shoe elevates the heel placing me more on the balls of my feet. Also, it feels like it's hugging your foot and there is some good padding on the tongue. The suede toe covering is great for flicking and the stitching helps hold its form. The only drawback is that the tongue is not held in place by lateral elastic bands and I frequently have to adjust the tongue every so often while skating. All and all, I love this shoe, and it is definitely good for skating! $40.
