While there are six reasons why we can’t wait for the Dragon Ball Z and adidas collaboration, this highly-anticipated capsule has invigorated the sneaker world with the thought of how a partnership with Nike could have looked like instead.

Graphic illustrator and sneakerhead Walsh Design has just done that, as he’s taken the initiative of creating a Nike x DBZ concept featuring 12 of the Swoosh’s classic and newest silhouettes. Highlighting the Air Max 97, Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air VaporMax, and Epic React amongst other styles, the models are essentially reimagined with the manga’s most iconic characters in mind, such as Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Frieza, and more.

With the DBZ x adidas collaboration debuting later this fall, enjoy the DBZ x Nike concepts in the gallery above and don’t forget to share your thoughts below.

Also, critics are calling ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’ the best ‘DBZ’ fighting game ever.
