BAIT Gives Us A Look At The Complete ‘DBZ’ Collection
Once adidas announced their collaboration with Dragon Ball Z, the sneaker world stopped in it’s tracks to take in the moment. Now as we near the releases of what could be one of the biggest collections of our lifetime, BAIT gives us a complete look of the collection. 7 sneakers make up this collection – each representing a character we are familiar with from the animated series. First up be released is a rivalry, that took up hours and hours of our childhood which is Son Goku (ZX 500) vs. Frieza (Yung 1). The ZX 500 rocks the famous orange & blue of Goku’s gi, while the Yung 1 hosts Frieza’s skin with the white & purple.
The Collection does not stop there – here is the list of the characters waiting in line. Buu (Kamanda) will be the peach coloured upper with rippled translucent black midsole that carries into the outsole. Vageta (Ultra Tech) is highly recognized with the connection of his sneaker to his new Saiyan armor created by Bulma. My favourite two sneakers from this collection, represent one of the best rivalry matches between Teen Gohan (Deerupt) & Perfect Cell (Prophere). The Deerupt captures the purple gi Gohan wore during the battle, with a purple on purple mesh-over that sits on a black midsole and is finally ended with a gum rubber outsole replicating Gohan’s shoes in the battle. Cell’s Prophere design is the most detailed and the upper holds the pattern of cells skin and is accented with purple heels as it’s upper. To close out this collection it was only appropriate that adidas captured Shenron (EQT Support ADV PK) with a green on green upper that ends at the heel with yellow and red. This sits on a two part mid which is red at the back over an all around white fading into a green outsole.
