Adidas Team Up With Dragon Ball Z For Limited Edition Sneaker Series This Fall

by Oliver MacNamee

As a huge sneaker freak, I subscribe to a fair few sneaker sites with my shoe of choice often being Adidas. So, you can imagine my surprise when I woke up to a mail out announcing that this weekend Adidas will be dropping not one but two different sneakers based on the Dragon Ball Z anime. These will be part of a seven shoe series, so if you don’t get lucky this weekend, you may get lucky another time. Take a look at them here and decide if they’re for you, or if you can even afford them, as they’re selling at $150 or $170 (£149 or £159).

Both style come in choice of colours but surely you’d go for the Dragon Ball Z orange and blue colour way as a fan of the show?

First up we have the Yung 1 design ($150/£149):

Secondly, and one of my favourite old school 80’s sneakers, the Goku ZX 500, also sporting the similar Dragon Ball Z colour way going for $170/£159

Further to these two releases Adidas will follow these up with more Dragon Ball Z inspired sneakers. Take a look at some of the styles and the drop dates, incase this news gets to you too late for you to pounce. From what I can see, the best are yet to come.

Adida/Dragon Ball Z Deerupt coming October
adidas Dragon Ball Z Prophere
Adidas/Dragin Ball Z Shenron X

Here’s the full list of trainers and drop dates:

Goku / Adidas ZX 500 RM (September 29th, $170)
