Following the announcement of the highly anticipated collaboration with anime show, Dragon Ball Z and adidas Originals, we've decided to give a little first-look of the unique collaboration!

Based on 7 characters from the show, which ran on the Cartoon Network between 1998 and 2003, adidas Originals will be launching each character in a battle with another. First up is the Goku vs Frieza. Seen on the YUNG-1 silhouette is the "Freiza" colourway displaying a unique take on the new rebirthed silhouette. Dark purple panelling dominates the sneaker including pops of bright pink on the bottom sole and inner lateral side in a corduroy fabric. You can find two extra components on the heel, which resembles the purple dome-like features on the Dragon Ball Z character. The "Goku" colourway featured on a ZX 500 RM showcases a vibrant orange suede upper and a yellow nylon fabric on the toe box. The heel tab features the Kanji logo, meaning "wisdom", whilst on the inner lateral side you'll find a nimbus cloud embroidered in yellow thread! There's lots of beautiful details that i'm sure will win over many Dragon Ball Z fans.

adidas Originals paid huge attention to their audience with this exclusive collaboration. Each pair is perfectly packaged in Dragon Ball Z merchandise inside and out. If you collect all 7 boxes and stack them together you'll find yourself with a neat image of all the featured characters, similarly to if you ever lined up your old comic books.

These two pairs will be available at pam pam on Saturday 29th September, keep an eye out on our blog for more images of the next characters in battle. In the meantime, be sure to check out our latest offering from adidas Originals!
