The second release in the line of Dragon Ball Z inspired adidas Originals will drop on October 27, 2018.
Officially titled “adidas Originals by Dragon Ball Z,” this sneaker line will see 8 different models appear throughout the rest of 2018 all based on three of the main hero x villain fights from the internationally beloved anime series.
The first two releases in this collection were the Goku-inspired ZX 500 RM DB’s and the Frieza-themed YUNG-1 DB’s. Fans can now look forward to the new Gohan DEERUPT RUNNER DB’s and the Cell PROPHERE DB’s coming later this month.
The DEERUPT RUNNER DB’s come in a tonal purple colour inspired by Gohan’s iconic battle suit. They have a webbing mesh overlay and shiny reflectors down the sides made to look the wearer is turning Super Saiyan. There’s also logos on the heel patches expressing Gohan’s respect to his mentor, Piccolo. Gohan’s name is also written in kanji on the heels. There’s also an adidas x DBZ logo on the insoles for this collaboration.
The PROPHERE DB’s are modelled on Gohan’s arch-enemy, Cell. They come with Cell’s iconic green exoskeleton colour with a purple accent – a reference to his wings. This pair is a nod to one of the most notorious villains in the series.
Show your love for DBZ by getting your hands on one of the sneaker pairs in the line-up!
