Goku meets Frieza on two new releases of ZX 500 RM and YUNG-1 respectively.
After more than half a year’s rumors, the hugely-discussed meeting between Adidas Originals and Dragon Ball Z has finally become a reality. Adidas has confirmed the first part of the cooperation, which symbolizes the match between Son Goku and Frieza. The meeting has been embodied in the form of two new releases of the ZX 500 RM and YUNG-1, respectively, and these have just appeared more detailed images.
For the new collaboration with Dragon Ball Z, Adidas has chosen a handful of their latest models to raise awareness about them, but equally to allow the collaboration to be made up of unique sneakers that do not recall previous releases.
Classic with modern design
The YUNG-1 and ZX 500 RM are both models that come from this year, but on the other hand, they have designs inspired by classic 80’s and 90’s designs. The ZX 500 RM is an old model from 1984, which Adidas has chosen to update with a new silhouette and Boost sole while YUNG-1 is a relaunch of the Falcon Dorf model from the 90’s. Thus, they can be described as two models that balance between classical and modern design – which also fits well into the Dragon Bal Z universe.
The first two Dragon Ball Z sneakers have a very successful design that effortlessly symbolizes the two characters – Goku and Frieza. In addition to color selection, it is expressed in the shape of various details on the shoes. Yung 1 “Frieza” is equipped with a glossy leather panel that reflects Frieza’s smooth skin, and the ZX 500 RM “Goku” features the outline of a small “Flying Nombus “Shake on the upper part.
In addition, both models feature a co-branded insole and come with a unique shoe box that makes them unique collectors.
Lander later in the month
For the same reason, there are no doubts that the two Dragon Ball Z x adidas Originals sneakers will be very difficult to get on when they are released later this month.
