Yu-Gi-Oh x Adidas Collection Announced

These days, it feels like every anime is on the hunt for a sneaker collaboration. From Dragon Ball to Pokemon, IPs are looking out for their next be project, and the fashion industry has been all too happy to heed the call. Now, it seems like Adidas is getting back in the anime game with a new collaboration, and this time Yu-Gi-Oh will take center stage with the brand. 

The update comes from Modern Notoriety as the site learned Yu-Gi-Oh x Adidas was on its way. A slew of product photos surfaced from the special collaboration, and honestly? These peeks have fans ready to risk their whole wallets.

As you can see above, the collection borrows from Adidas' early '00s profiles as their Y2K heritage aligns with Yu-Gi-Oh itself. After all, creator Kazuki Takahashi saw the series rise to fame at the end of the 1990s, and it became a global phenomenon at the turn of the millennium. Shoes like the Reptossage and ADI2000 are shown in this collection. So if you want sandals or sneakers, you are good to go here.

When it comes to artwork, the two sneakers feature the artwork of Yugi and the Dark Magician or Kaiba and the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. The white sneakers will feature some clever nods to Yu-Gi-Oh throughout, but their biggest tribute comes by way of the trading card key art printed on the leather exterior. The collection will also highlight these two monsters with its Reptossage slides, so fans can celebrate their favorite Duel Monster even on the go.

At this point, there is no word on when Yu-Gi-Oh x Adidas will go live, but the street date for these kicks is listed as 2022. No pricing has been shared either, but given Adidas' current price point, fans can expect to pay at least $100 USD for these kicks.
