FILA is set to unleash a new collaboration with Dragon Ball Super for a collection of cool new shoes! Dragon Ball fans have quite a lot to celebrate this year as not only has the manga broken into uncharted territory full of powerful new foes, reveals about the past, and cool new forms making their debut, but the anime franchise will be making its return to Japan next year with the release of its next feature film. Now something even cooler is on the way as FILA is collaborating with Toei Animation and Funimation for a cool new sneaker collection.
Following the initial announcement for the collection earlier this Fall during New York Comic Con, there will be seven character inspired designs that will range from men's to kids sizes. The new collection takes the Original Fitness and F-13, as well as four distinct FILA Renno designs that will be inspired by Goku, Goku Black, Vegeta, Golden Frieza, Trunks, Beerus, and Super Shenron.
The Dragon Ball Super x FILA collection will be available exclusively through Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction beginning on December 21st, in the United States and Canada only. Each release will feature the Dragon Ball Super logo on the tongue, heel, and sock liner, and the FILA Renno styles will retail for $100 USD (men's sizes) and $90 USD (kids sizes), the FILA F-13 for $80 USD (men's sizes) and $70 USD (kids sizes), and the FILA Original Fitness for $75 USD (men's sizes) and $65 USD (kids sizes).
