After adidas officially confirmed its seven-silhouette sneaker collaboration with Dragon Ball Z last week, we’re now getting our first look at an unboxing of the Goku-themed adidas ZX 500 RM. Courtesy of Sneaker News, the video above gets up close and personal with a sneaker that is inspired by the anime’s main protagonist.

The “Goku” ZX 500 RM upper is blue, two-tone orange, and white, with a primarily white midsole that has hits of blue and red. The special project is rounded off by a black shoe box featuring a Dragon Ball Z graphic.

The video comes after we got a closer look at the model back in July, as well as a preview of the packaging in early August.

The overall drop represents three major battles from the show. They are as follows: Son Goku vs. Frieza, represented by a new ZX 500 RM and Yung-1 sneaker respectively; Son Gohan vs. Cell, in the shape of a Deerupt and Prophere; and Vegeta vs. Majin Buu, who get an Ultra Tech and Kamanda. The seventh kick is a Shenron the Dragon-inspired EQT Support Mid ADV PK.

Each battle’s set of kicks — hero and villain — will drop on a monthly basis from September to December. The shoes will come in special Dragon Ball Z packaging, with each box coming together to form one large single design — a nod to the tapestry-style images deployed on OG Dragon Ball magazines.

Watch the video above and leave your thoughts on the silhouette below.
