Adidas Releases 2 More Dragon Ball Z Themed Sneakers
After designing colorways in August celebrating Goku and Frieza and two more featuring Son Gohan and Cell in September, Adidas continues its series of Dragon Ball Z-themed sneakers with two new styles inspired by Boo and Vegeta. Adidas Originals will release its fifth and sixth Dragon Ball designs November 24 with a tribute to the “Majin Boo Saga” using the Kamanda and Ultra Tech styles as a canvas.
Designed in thoughtful collaboration with the iconic animated series, Adidas “Majin Boo Kamanda” features a pink Nubuck upper with perforated holes in place of the brand’s three stripes as an homage to those in the character’s head and torso. A translucent rubber outsole evokes Boo’s rippling trousers, and additional details on the tongue and gold foil logo celebrate his rich iconography.
The Ultra Tech model replicates Vegeta’s primary-color ensemble, featuring a blue and gold upper that’s embroidered to resemble the fighter’s armor plates. The sides of the shoe are white, echoing his gloves and boots, while a printed detail of his famous quote “Over 9000!” ties everything together.
Both shoes also feature concealed Dragon Ball symbols and other signifiers, and come in limited edition packaging that combines with the other six shoes in the series to create a complete image when arranged on fans’ shelves. Adidas didn’t supply prices for the upcoming sneakers, but earlier styles sold out quickly and are now going for more than $200 online via resale sites.
Two more styles featuring Shenron and Super Shenron are scheduled for release in December so stay tuned for more information about them
