Emperor of Universe 7, Yung-1 🌎

The first sneaker in the adidas x Dragon Ball Z collection is a Frieza inspires adidas “Yung-1” running canvas. This will be adidas' latest silhouettes that will debut this year; its design bears a huge resemblance to the Yeezy Wave Runner 700 model.

Frieza is one of the major tyrants in the series who wants the Dragon Balls to be immortal. Yung-1 was inspired by the villain’s trademark white and purple shades. The sneaker also appears to be a look-alike of the ‘90s Temper Run runner from the Three Stripes.

Mimicking the Dragon Ball comic character, Frieza, Yung-1 includes a white mesh and leather upper. Also, purple and pink suede accents are visible on the toe box.

Purple hits are noticeable on its tongue, midsole, and heel. Not only that, there are further pink details on its outsole tread. While the usual side panel is white along with a purple outline.

This sneaker will be releasing late 2018 along with its fellow Dragon Ball companions.

Update (April 6, 2018): 

  • A Europe release date for adidas “Yung-1” has become available. The sneaker will release in 2 colourways on (June 20th, 2018) for €130.00.
