Ready, Set, Goku.
Finally, the entire adidas x Dragon Ball Z collection has been revealed, and they’re releasing in special battle packs starting this August.
First up is Goku and Frieza from the “Frieza Saga” with character colorways draped across the adidas ZX 500 RM and the Yung-1 respectively.
September sees Gohan and Cell fight it out in the “Cell and the Androids Saga” , represented by the new adidas Deerupt and the Prophere.
November names Vegeta and Majin Buu for the “Majin Buu Saga” interpreted by the Ultra Tech and the Kamanda.
December finishes the collection with Shenlong and Super Shenlong with the EQT Mid ADV.
It’s quite obvious that there is a lack of BOOST present, as adidas look to push their newest silhouettes, using the DBZ hype to propel them into the new mainstream and migrate the market away from already established favorites like the NMD.
Yeezy Mafia have revealed that each sneaker release comes with an action figure of the corresponding character. There are also rumors that characters Mr. Popo, Yajirobe, Tenshinhan and Mr. Satan will also be getting their own silhouette, which suggests that the adidas Dragon Ball Z collection may extend beyond the eight shoes seen here.
Stay tuned for more details.
