Graphic designer Matthew Walsh made true to his word by turning one of his Dragon Ball Z x Nike concepts into reality. Though his initial concepts included a range of 12 Nike silhouettes, Walsh has rightly chosen to begin with his Goku-themed Air Max 1. Injected with Goku‘s signature colors, the upper sees overlaid patches of distressed orange canvas mimicking his tattered pants, while hits of blue are found on the Swoosh, toe box, and Max Air bubble unit. Finally a Dragon Ball-centric logo on the tongue and heel finishes off the look of this one-of-one custom sneaker.
