September 29th marks the first official release date for the DragonBall Z x Adidas collection

The first 2 sneakers releasing in the collection will be the Adidas ZX 500 RM "Goku" and the Adidas YUNG-1 “Frieza”. The two-piece set was inspired by the iconic battle between Goku and Frieza on Planet Namek. Below are more detailed images of the sneakers and highlights of the details that Adidas added. 

Let's start with a more in depth look at the sneaker that was made for Goku. At first glance you can see the familiar orange and blue color scheme from Goku's usual wardrobe. Small details like Goku’s flying Nimbus can be found stitched onto the sneaker as well as graphic print tailored to him on the insole.

Moving onto the Frieza’s YUNG 1, you can see a white, purple, and pink colorway. Small details like the gloss pods on the heel of the sneaker can only be found on this pair of Yung 1's and resemble the purple parts on the head and shoulders of Frieza. If you look at the tongue you can see two major details as well. One is the F that is on the lower part of the tongue and closer to your toes. Second is the Dragonball with two stars on the inner part of the tongue.

In addition to the details that dress up these popular sneaker designs, the packaging includes nods that DBZ fans will appreciate. For example, the graphic on the tissue paper, an all-over Dragon Ball Z graphic lining the box’s inner walls, and images of the respective character on the outside of the box. To add to the hype, when the boxes are stacked on top of each other they compile the image below. It seems that when the full collection of 7 shoes are piled together we will have a full image of all the characters highlighted in this collaboration.
