Those kicks came with the characters embroidered, a Pokéball on the backside, and contrasting hits of yellow (Pikachu) and blue (Squirtle).
This time, a pixellated Pikachu print comes on the lateral heel, while others of the same style (including Bulbasaur, Charmander and Mewtwo) fill the inner lining.
Co-branded tongue tabs and insoles complete the look, along with an Adidas-branded heel tab that makes a sharp contrast.
The first of the new collaboration’s images appear to have come from insider @US_11, and if the photos are, indeed, official product shots, they could be available at soon.
Likewise, the collaboration appears to follow Adidas’s extensive “Dragon Ball Z” collection.
