Editor’s Notes: After getting our very first look at the Majin Buu-themed adidas Kamanda sneaker way back in January, a rumored release date has been circulating online. According to asphaltgold, the kicks will be released on November 24 for a rumored retail price of approximately $150.
In addition to the rumored release information, adidas has since shared official images of the anticipated Dragon Ball Z sneaker.
For the adidas Originals x Dragon Ball Z collaboration, three battles from the Japanese anime series have been reimagined in sneaker form, with seven silhouettes available in total — a sneaker to represent each of the heroes and villains who fought in the battles, plus a kick inspired by Shenron the Dragon. This specific silhouette is inspired by Majin Buu.
adidas has updated its Kamanda silhouette to match the character. A light pink nubuck upper, purple laces, as well as a black translucent outsole mirror Buu’s colors, while the character’s gold demon mark on the heel, his name in Japanese Kanji and Katakana on the outsole, and detailing on the inside of the tongue complete the look.
Make sure to check back for confirmed info as it emerges.
