Dragon Ball Z's upcoming collaboration with the adidas clothing and shoe company is one of the most hyped shoe collections of the year, but fans have been waiting in the dark for an official announcement of the release.
While not yet and official announcement of the collection, adidas has released official images of the first two sneakers collaborations coming in the line: Son Goku and Freeza.

The Son Goku inspired kicks will reportedly release alongside the Freeza inspired Dragon Ball Z x adidas Yung 1, which takes Frieza's purple, pink, and white color scheme and gives the shoe a great colorway. Fans can also see that Frieza's box has the two-star Dragon Ball (followed by Goku's one-star), hinting that each Dragon Ball will get its own shoe.
There have been other leaks in the past about what's to come next in the collection such as shoes inspired by Cell, Majin Buu, Gohan and even Shenron, but these are still unconfirmed until adidas officially releases images of those collaborations as well. The scheduled release will reportedly take place this month, meaning that fans will have to keep their eyes very peeled for these much sought after shoes.
