An Adidas and Dragon Ball collaboration series is on the way sometime this year, and now that leaks as to how they'll look have hit the Internet, fans are having quite a mixed and hilarious reaction.

Starting with the Goku shoe:

As for the Vegeta pair:

There's a mixed reaction to the shoes, but the hilarious reaction is only going to push more of the series out and make it far more popular.

So far, Adidas has kept quiet about the reported leak and others like it. This month, Seraphy dropped images of the line's Cell, Majin Buu, and Freeza kicks. The new shoes, which can be seen above, were met with mixed reviews by fans. Cell's shoes come in the Prophere style and have a speckled green design to them. As for Freeza, the kicks are based on the Yung-1 design and feature a vibrant white-and-purple color scheme. Majin Buu's shoes have a baby pink body with purple accents, and they will come in the Kamanda style.

Again, there is no official announcement from Adidas about the anime team-up, but fans are hopeful. The collaboration would be the first official one between the brands. In the past, some fans did manage to get their own Dragon Ball kicks from Adidas through the Adidas ZX Flux collection. One lucky fan managed to get his design approved by Adidas on accident, giving the customizable shoes some very copyright unfriendly designs

There is also currently a new Dragon Ball film in the works for 2018. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan God. Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and new character designs.
