adidas Originals has officially announced their collaboration with international anime series, Dragon Ball Z. The collaboration is made up of three of the most iconic battles between heroes and villains of the anime series re-imagined in sneaker form.
The collaboration will feature seven silhouettes from the adidas Originals roster, carefully chosen to represent the characteristics of the heroes and villains to which they refer. Starting off the battle will be Son Goku and Frieza, which will collaborate on the ZX 500 RM and Yung-1.
Following the first silhouette will be Son Gohan and Cell in sneaker form as the Deerupt and Prophere. Representing the final battle in the project, is the Ultra Tech and Kamanda silhouettes are made-p in the image of Majin Buu and Vegeta. Made up of a total of 7 Dragon balls, the collaboration will be finished with the appearance of Shenron the Dragon, which will be re-imagined as the EQT Support Mid ADV PK.
Each release in the collection will feature two silhouettes (one hero and one villain) releasing every month from September to December. The sneaker will be released in a special collaborative packaging that features an individual Dragon Ball detail, each box coming together to create a singular back cover design a tribute to the tapestry-like images that are found on the spines of the original Dragon Ball magazines.
