‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ and Adidas team up to release Yami Yugi-inspired sneakers

The collaboration comes in a unique shoe box with a limited-edition Dark Magician card and an Exodia hangtag

“Yu-Gi-Oh!” fans can take their love for the Japanese manga and anime series to the next level with a special pair of shoes from Adidas.
The upcoming collaboration between “Yu-Gi-Oh!” and the German shoe company was inspired by none other than Yami Yugi, one of the series’ main protagonists who holds the title “King of Games.”
The sneakers, which Adidas calls a “new, spellbinding, take on the Adi2000 silhouette,” feature several special elements, including “a black leather upper, contrasting gold stripes, purple accents, and pink details.”
