Dan Mancina's journey in skateboarding is a testament to overcoming challenges and shattering expectations. Diagnosed at thirteen with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare degenerative disease leading to blindness, Mancina refused to let his loss of eyesight impede his passion for skateboarding. His perseverance and skill have earned him a place in the professional skating world and sponsorships with major brands like adidas. In a tribute to his inspiring story, Mancina is now honored with his own colorway of the adidas Busenitz.

Mancina’s take on the adidas Busenitz is a stylish blend of functionality and personal storytelling. It features a durable olive-shaded suede upper, making it perfect for the rigors of skateboarding. The design is punctuated with contrasting white, red, black, and gold accents, each color thoughtfully chosen to add depth and vibrancy. The iconic adidas Three Stripes on the midfoot are rendered in white leather, bordered by red edges, creating a striking visual. Mancina's name is elegantly displayed in gold, adding a personal touch.

The sneaker's unique and inclusive aspect is the black bar with braille on the tongue, spelling out Mancina's name. This thoughtful detail personalizes the shoe for Dan and makes it a meaningful piece for other visually impaired individuals. It's a feature that transcends aesthetics, offering a tactile way to connect with the sneaker's design. The sneaker is anchored by a robust white sole unit, providing the necessary support and grip for skateboarding.

The Dan Mancina x adidas Busenitz will release on January 20, 2024, through adidas and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $90.
