As you can see, the green-and-purple shoes borrow heavily from Cell's look. The shoe's body is covered in patterned fabric with its color ranging from forest green to neon purple. Its laces and tongue are a dark green with a violet Adidas logo on printed as well.

When it comes to the shoes' insides, it seems Store By JC took out the cushioned insert to show its design. The purple fabric has Dragon Ball icons printed on it alongside some Japanese characters. Then, the Dragon Ball Z logo is printed on the solo with a stylized version of the Adidas Originals logo.

Not long ago, the Instagram user shared a side view of the Dragon Ball sneakers. The image, which can be seen above, shows the box which the Cell shoes come in. The black packaging is printed with Shenron, and characters like Cell and Freeza can be seen as well. As for the shoe itself, the side profile shows off the green stripes lining the sneakers' side and its purple heels. The special Prophere kicks also have a wide white solos with dotted ridging.

So far, there has yet to be a official announcement of the collaboration, so no official street date is out. Still, there is a rumor that the collection is set to start dropping in August. So far, other shoes from the line have found themselves leaked online with the collection's Majin Buu sneakers having been spotted earlier this year.
