After rumors back in December, it is now confirmed Adidas is collaborating with Dragon Ball Z to bring fans an amazing set of sneakers. The rumor first started in December when Yeezy Mafia posted saying Adidas x Dragon Ball Z would bring us seven shoes for seven dragon balls in Fall of 2018.

While there is still no official announcement from Adidas, Seraphpy previewed two of the sneakers on the What Drops Next Instagram. The first sneakers we are seeing are Dragon Ball Z x Adidas Yung 1 Frieza and Prophere Cell viewable below. According to the leaks, we should see at least seven to eight different shoes. Furthermore, the Instagram posts hinted at the following possible shoes:
• Ultra Boost Yajirobe
• NMD_CS1 Mr. Popo
• NMD_Racer Mr. Satan
• Futurecraft Tenshinhan

Some other rumored models are: Ultra Boost „Yajirobe“ NMD_CS1 „Mr.Popo“ NMD_Racer „Mr.Satan“ Futurecraft „Tenshinhan“ 📷 : @Seraphpy #adidas #yung #freeza #frieza #dragonball #dragonballz #dbz

No word yet on Vegeta or Goku shoes for the set but every Dragon Ball Z fan is hoping. Personally, I’d love to see an awesome green Piccolo sneaker. This could also be one of the first official collaborations between Adidas and Dragon Ball Z. In the past, the Adidas ZX Flux Collection offered one Dragon Ball sneaker which few lucky fans got ahold of.

Arizona signee, school basketballer, and son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, Shareef O’Neal was also spotted in Dragon Ball Z themed Nikes this month. Life for a 6-foot-9 basketballer is pretty damn sweet especially when it comes with DBZ sneakers.
