We’ve waited long enough for this collection to release. In fact, you could be expecting a child and received it before the Adidas x Dragon Ball Z sneakers drop. But the wait is nearly over now. This month, we’re getting two of eight sneakers that are releasing in honor of the Dragon Ball Z adventures.
3 DBZ Movies
One of the main reasons these shoes are dropping is probably because three DBZ movies are supposed to come out this year. According to Forbes, two events will take place in which the three movies will screen. The first movie is Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan, and it’ll show on September 15 and 17. The second and third movies, Dragon Ball Z: Bardock – The Father of Goku and Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, will screen on both November 3 and 5.
Adidas x Dragon Ball Z Collection
We think those are interesting dates considering two shoes are to drop in Septemeber and two more in November. As preparation for the movies, two pairs dropping in August. They are the Adidas X Dragon Ball Z ZX500 RM Goku and the Yung-1 Frieza.
Both Goku and Frieza’s shoes are remakes of older silhouettes from the 80s and 90s. The Yung-1 is a reworked pair of an old-school running shoe called the “Falcon Dorf” and the ZX500 will be coming back this time around with Boost in the sole.
For Goku’s ZX500 RM, features on the shoe are very detailed to the last bit. There’s even Goku’s yellow Flying Nimbus on the front of the shoe and his Goku symbol on the heel tab.
Frieza’s menacing silhouette is cold. Resembling his character, the Yung-1 is dressed in white and purple with hints of pink. Leather, mesh, rubber, and more material will comprise the shoe.
Both sneakers include a Dragon Ball Z insoles and may drop alongside collectible figurines. The release date is not yet clear, but keep your eyes open for any possible day this month could be the day. Finally, they may both retail for $150.
