With an already successful run as an athletic shoe brand, adidas has launched itself as a major player within skating. From the get-go, adidas' skate shoes gained respect due to highly functional features, classic looks, and pre-existing designs that were already popular amongst skaters. Their skate shoes are specifically designed for skateboarding, with special attention paid to minimize harsh impacts, abrasion, and skate-related wear.
Many of adidas' classic designs have been upgraded for skating, such as the Campus Vulc. Additionally, models like the Busenitz Pro and Gonzales Pro have taken styling cues from such classics as the Copa Mundial cleat and Gazelle sneaker.
