The Drop: adidas x Dragon Ball Z 'First Round'
Join Goku’s gang and release your inner Super Sayajin…
This month adidas are kicking off an exciting collaboration with anime favourite Dragon Ball Z. Paying tribute to three famous battles from the popular cartoon, the series is made up of seven unique sneakers across a number of drop dates.
ZX 500 RM 'Son Goku'
First to enter the battle is the main protagonist himself, Son Goku taking the form of the ZX 500 RM silhouette in a vibrant orange and blue colourway. Inspired by Goku’s training suit, the sneaker features an orange suede and nylon upper with blue denim stripes and tongue sat on a Boost sole.
Second to enter is the most powerful being in the universe and Goku’s ultimate rival, the galactic tyrant Freiza. Taking host in the new YUNG-1 model in a white and purple colourway, the sneaker reflects Frieza’s colours and the TPU accents imitate his shiny head.
A wearable collector’s item, each pair features a unique dragon ball and reflects either a villain or hero from the series. Anime fanatics get ready to battle for a pair, as once you have collected them all, the boxes will reveal a picture.
The ZX 500 RM Goku and YUNG-1 Freiza are launching on the 29th September and will be available online.
