The images appear as a result of the Adidas collection.
The Adidas x Dragon Ball Z collection took the Internet by storm, as many sneakerheads and fans of the classic anime series were elated that this limited edition collection was actually happening. However, some people were taken aback by collaboration, including sneaker enthusiast Matthew Walsh, who took to Instagram to reveal a set of images he had designed for a Nike x Dragon Ball Z collection.
Walsh began reworking the confirmed roster of characters who inspired the Adidas outing, including Goku, Shenron, Frieza, Majin Buu, Vegeta, Cell and Son Gohan. Walsh then added some new characters into the mix such as Master Roshi, Bulma, Trunks and Cooler, as he reimagined classic Nike silhouettes and colourways to mimic the character's outfits.
For example, the Air Max 1 features the orange and blue colouring of Goku's garb, while also emblazoning a Nimbus cloud branding on the heel, while the Air Max 95 is envisioned in the grey and purple combination found on Frieza's person. Nike's latest sneaker, the Epic React, is given a pink upper in honour of Bulma, while the Air VapourMax is rendered in a Shenron-esque green upper perfectly accented with red, all while sitting atop a gold outsole.
