An in-depth look at the Dragon Ball Z x adidas Originals “Goku” & “Frieza”
For a long time, people were unsure whether this was a real collection or a fan-made concept. However, adidas info specialists Yeezy Mafia teased some early images of the collection and basically confirmed the collab a few months ago.
Since then, adidas Originals has officially announced the joint collection, followed by an in-depth look at the first two pairs. Courtesy of German-based sneaker store, 43 Einhalb, the lookbook features the ZX 500 RM “Goku” and Yung-1 “Frieza”. Dressed in the exact colours as their animated characters, each model features an instantly recognizable variation of tones. Orange, blue, white and black for the former pair, and grey & purple for the latter.
The packaging was unveiled by adidas before the actual sneakers were, each featuring a unique thematic design related to the series. Adding some extra fun to the release, the brand details those who are able to collect all seven boxes will reveal a larger, singular design.
Planning to release two pairs a month for the next two months, the brand is said to be releasing pairs including the; Prophere “Cell”, Deerupt “Son Gohan” (October), Ultra Tech “Vegeta” and Kamanda “Majin Buu” (November). Some of which have already surfaced unofficially online.
Available on September 29th from 9:00 am, grab the “Goku” and “Freiza” edition here for £149.95 and £159.95. Sneaker stores like 43 Einhalb will be stocking the pair, along with other specified retailers.
