Whats Surprise adidas x Dragon Ball Z Collection Bring to Us ?

 

Expectantly, one box has been designed for the ZX 500 RM “Goku” and another for the Yung-1 “Frieza,” each boasting an adidas x Dragon Ball Z logo front and center. Dragon Ball Z‘s orange circle motif then welcomes the adidas Trefoil logo, while each box features an image of the character that inspired the shoe.

All eight shoes from the adidas Dragon Ball Z collection have been revealed; they will begin releasing in August featuring iconic match-ups between protagonists and antagonists of the Dragon Ball franchise. It starts in August with Son Goku and Frieza/Freeza from the “Freeza Saga” represented by the adidas ZX 500 RM and the Yung-1. September will feature Son Gohan and Cell from the “Cell and the Androids Saga” with the new adidas Deerupt and the Prophere. It continues in November with Vegeta and Majin Buu from the “Majin Buu Saga” represented by the Ultra Tech and the Kamanda. As of this report, the collection concludes in December with Shenlong and Super Shenlong (alternately spelled “Shenron”) and the upcoming EQT Mid ADV. We would guess December is based on “The Secret of the Dragon Balls.” The entire selection of footwear highlights adidas’ newer footwear models that are set to debut throughout 2018. The obvious lack of BOOST footwear models might be alarming, but adidas is attempting to bring energy around fresh silhouettes in an effort to broaden consumer interest beyond the predictable NMD route. Additionally, The Yeezy Mafia reveals that each shoe release will come with an action figure of the corresponding character. There are rumors that characters Mr. Popo, Yajirobe, Tenshinhan and Mr. Satan will also be getting their own silhouette, which suggests that the adidas Dragon Ball Z collection may extend beyond the eight shoes seen here. See all eight adidas Dragon Ball Z shoes below and stay tuned for the latest updates regarding this major Fall 2018 collaboration. Update September 1, 2018: adidas Originals took to social media to tease the official announcement of their collaboration with the legendary global anime series Dragon Ball Z. The collaboration will focus on three of the most iconic battles re-imagined in sneaker form. While early leaks called for the release to kick off in August, adidas has confirmed September 2018 as the official kick off. Shoes have not been revealed but check our adidas x Dragon Ball Z page for what’s been leaked so far. And stay tuned for more details around this special release.

adidas Parley Ultra Boost Performance Review

I have a love/hate relationship with Adidas trainers.

I LOVE (like have run 6 marathons) in the Ultra Boost and currently have 5 pairs on rotation – the older pairs get given to friends and recycled. However, I haven’t got on too well with their Pure Boost X or Ultra Boost X – these are the trainers they’ve developed specifically for women (click on the links to read my reviews).

I was recently sent the Parley Ultra Boost, and couldn’t wait to test them. I love the concept behind the trainers, utilising marine plastic pollution and recycled material to create the shoes. Each pair’s upper is made from 95% waste plastic dredged from the oceans around the Maldives – recycling 11 plastic bottles, plus the rest of the shoe including lining, laces and the heel is made from recycled material.

The Adidas yeezy collection was made in partnership with Parley for the Oceans, to address the millions of pounds of plastic currently polluting our waters (records suggest that there’s currently 40 million pounds in the North West Pacific alone). There have been five huge vortexes of debris formed, these slow moving whirlpools affecting marine life worldwide, not to mention the rubbish that washes ashore.

Parley are promoting for us to Avoid using plastic bags and products with micro beads, reducing the influx of virgin plastic into the supply chain, Intercept plastic marine debris before it gets into our oceans, and to Redesign our views on eco/recycled material, inventing new methods and mindsets for the future.

The quick review is that these trainers fell somewhere in the middle…

Lets start with the part I love;

  • As mentioned above, I really appreciate that they’re made out of recycled plastic, and that Adidas are helping to bring attention to the plastic problem in our oceans.
  • I’m a massive fan of the Boost technology sole. I think it’s really responsive, very bouncy and perfect for road running, esp for neutral runners.
  • They’re really lightweight, perfect for travelling and for running fast!
  • All Adidas Boost use Continental Rubber on the soles (the same as the tyres), to increase grip and stability on both wet and dry surfaces.
  • They look gorgeous…. come on, gone are the days where all we cared about was function from our running shoes!

I don’t love;

  • How tight the upper is across my foot. I never know whether to wear socks with these style of knit shoes, but as someone with quite wide feet, I find the shoes very tight and a little uncomfortable for runs over 30 mins. I go up a full size in Adidas shoes, so wear a 6.5 in these and they’re still a little snug.
  • The back comes up quite high – above ankle socks – and rubbed my ankles to the point of bleeding (major sad face). I found this a major problem with the Pure Boost X – perhaps it’s more to do with my foot shape and running style than the design? Apparently it’s been designed to keep the heel in place and reduce wobble and lifting out of the shoe while you run.

Have you ever tried Adidas NMD Boost ? Love them? Hate them?
