This adidas x Dragon Ball Z series just went Super Saiyan…thank you, Yeezus.
A few days ago, WearTesters reported on an adidas x Dragon Ball Z collaboration set to release sometime in Fall 2018. First, there was the adidas Yung-1 ‘Frieza’ and Prophere ‘Cell’ and shortly thereafter the adidas Kamanda ‘Majin Buu’ was leaked, along with release months.
Now, thanks to The Yeezy Mafia on Twitter, we know have concrete release months as well as the full lineup of sneakers set to release.
With the exception of the December release, the months prior will see two particular sneakers drop every month, as a homage to the saga in which they appeared. Each pair will come with an action figure that inspired the colorway.
For example in August 2018…
ZX 500 RM

The adidas ZX 500 RM ‘Son Goku’ will drop alongside the…
…adidas Yung-1 ‘Frieza’ as a reference to when Goku fought Frieza on the planet Namek, which ultimately came down to Goku winning the battle by leaving Frieza’s mangled body on the imploding planet.
Meanwhile in September 2018…
…the adidas Deerupt ‘Son Gohan’ will release with…
…the adidas Prophere ‘Cell’, a nod to when Gohan finally defeated Perfect Cell, with the help of Goku and the rest of the Z Fighters (except Yamcha).
November 2018 will see the release of the…
…adidas Ultra Tech ‘Vegeta’ as well as the…
…adidas Kamanda ‘Majin Buu’, a reference of the battle between the Prince of All Saiyans and perhaps the most dangerous villain in the Dragon Ball Z universe, Majin Buu.
Finally, in December 2018, the last sneaker in the seven sneaker collaboration is set to drop: the adidas EQT Mid ADV ‘Shenlong’ (or Shenron). Shenlong is the dragon which appears after all seven dragon balls have been collected and grants a wish (eventually three) to the person who collected all seven.
No prices have been announced yet, but we now have concrete release months of when to expect this collaborative series. As always, keep it locked here to WearTesters for any upcoming news and price for the adidas x Dragon Ball Z collaboration.
