UPDATED on January 9, 2018:
News of an adidas x Dragon Ball Z sneaker collection sounded too good to be true when we reported on it late last month. But as style forecaster Yeezy Mafia promised, the collection is very much real and very much on the way.
In new images unveiled by Hypebeast and release forecaster What Drops Next, we see a first look at the collaboration, featuring two distinct sneakers inspired by Dragon Ball Z's Frieza and Cell.
For the collaboration, adidas unveiled an entirely new sneaker silhouette dubbed the Yung-1, utilized for the "Frieza" sneaker. The "Cell" iteration borrows adidas' Prophere design, which first made its debut in August of 2017.
Per What Drops Next's sneaker reveal, it's believed sneaker models for Dragon Ball Z characters Yajirobe, Mr.Popo, Mr.Satan and Tenshinhan are in the works as well. Keep your eyes peeled!
