adidas Remember the First-Ever Eternal Dragon Wish with this Dragon Ball Z x adidas Nizza Hi “Oolong”
Well, this is a blast from the past.
The Dragon Ball franchise returns to adidas for one more collaborative sneaker, and it harkens way back to the original Dragon Ball saga from 1986, the Emperor Pilaf Saga. Clearly the most amusing and playful pair yet, this Dragon Ball Z x adidas Nizza Hi “Oolong” / “Underwear” pair takes us back to Dragon Ball’s first-ever wish from an Eternal Dragon.
Here’s a brief overview of the moment: Having been summoned, the Eternal Dragon Shenron is now waiting for a wish to be made. Emperor Pilaf is too nervous being faced before the dragon to make his wish to be the ruler of the Earth before Oolong rushes up to the Eternal Dragon and wishes for — of all things — the world’s most comfortable pair of underwear (the uncensored version was girls panties, that creep) to prevent Pilaf’s wish being made at the last second — a wish that ultimately birthed Oceanus Shenron.
Kudos, pig. If it weren’t for him, we would have been enslaved for life by a pint-size emperor.
Now, adidas honor the heroic and equally amusing wish with a special-edition Nizza Hi. Featuring a white canvas upper, slime green outsoles and a soft pink midsole/toe overlay as its base, the pair calls upon all-over embroidery for character. The medial ankle has a headshot of the loveable pig, while the rest of the blank canvas is covered in happy-to-be-alive pairs of the world’s most comfortable underwear. Tongue tags continue the pigskin-color theme, while the specially printed insoles depict “ADIDAS” and “DRAGON BALL” in the original series typography.
Take a peep at the official image set of the Dragon Ball Z x adidas Nizza Hi “Oolong” below, which, at this stage, is pegged for release later this month. Keep it locked on our adidas Release Dates Calendar and our adidas News Feed for updates!
