shoes released in total across three models (two designs each for the Chuck Taylor All Star, Chuck 70 and One Star), which means prices are going to vary.
Adidas makes some Dragon Ball shoeZ, No Man’s Sky has more mans than ever, a celebrity musician confused the audience at a video game-related event, Elon Musk loves BioShock , and an investor makes a weird, expensive bet against Nintendo on this episode of Kotaku XP, our weekly discus...
we’re pretty much done with leaks : these are some of the first official shots of Adidas’ anticipated upcoming collaboration with Dragon Ball Z , and they show the first two pairs are running with a Goku vs. Frieza theme.
Without the rights to actually come out and say it’s a Gundam shoe, though, both companies have had to play it coy, passing it off instead as simply a generic anime-inspired sneaker, complete with an anime version of Foot Patrol’s logo in this video:
there was a big fuss from Dragon Ball fans over a line of sneakers that Adidas was releasing based on the franchise, mostly because a bunch of leaked designs looked terrible . Now that one of the shoes is actually coming out, though, things might not be so bad.
The three consoles are each based on an Air Jordan 3 colourway (“Black Cement“, “Free Throw Line“ and “Tinker Hatfield”), and each set comes with both the console and the shoes they’re based on.
It has a childish look to it, which I guess works for the subject matter, and I suppose the design fits the overall Sonic aesthetic. The gold rings on the laces are a nice touch.
