Inspired by the well-known Goku vs. Frieza rivalry that made up a significant part of the Dragon Ball Z narrative. Notably, these sneakers are also billed as being the popular animated series’ very first footwear collaboration. The color scheme and detailing take their primary inspirational cues from Goku’s instantly-recognizable, signature blue and orange outfit. For the build, the manufacturers employed a premium blend of leather, nubuck, distressed canvas and mesh materials. Tying the entire presentation together: an embroidered Flying Nimbus motif, a Dragon Ball Z-branded insole and a BOOST midsole unit with contrasting orange and blue sole counters.
