14.November.2018 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

The third kick of sneakers in the adidas Originals by Dragonball Z brand has been announced for a November 24 release. This ongoing 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. The second two releases were the Gohan design DEERUPT RUNNER DB’s and the Cell-coloured PROPHERE DB’s.

The next two pairs fans can look forward to are the OREGON ULTRA TECH DB’s and KAMANDA 01 DB’s inspired by Vegeta and Majin Buu respectively.

Vegeta (OREGON ULTRA TECH DB D97054): ¥20,000

Based on one of Dragon Ball‘s most memorable characters, the uppers on the OREGON ULTRA TECH DB’s make use of blue and gold, a colour-combo reminiscent of Vegeta’s battle suit. Embroidery is also used on the toe box to recreate his armour. His white gloves, boots and chest piece are portrayed through the white used on the outside of each shoe. Fans will also instantly recognise the iconic quote on the heel tab which reads “Over 9000!”

 

Majin Buu (KAMANDA 01 DB D97055): ¥18,000 (Pre-Tax)

The KAMANDA 01 DB’s are inspired by Majin Buu, the most powerful villain in Dragon Ball. The pink nubuck uppers feature the adidas Three Stripes but made in the image of the holes dotted around Buu’s head and body. The heel patch includes the letter “M” written on it like on Buu’s belt, and the outer-sole is wrapped in transparent rubber to recreate his pants. There are many little details and references to Buu, and there’s also the golden KAMANDA logo.
