Images of the Adidas Yung-1 Give Off Some Major Goku Vibes

If you haven’t heard, Adidas is collaborating with Dragon Ball Z to drop a massive collection Summer 2018. Leaks and mockups have been made since the rumors began a couple months back. And since then Adidas has introduced some of its new silhouettes like the Deerupt, Prophere, EQT ADV Mid, and now the Adidas Yung-1 is making appearances on social media.

The Return of the Falcon Dorf aka Yung1 leaked couple weeks ago already and last week the first shoes were spotted on foot during the influential Fashion Week in Paris. Since then I have received countless DM's with Q's about the shoe, the name and the release date. Reason enough to write up some more background information behind the project. First, where does that shoe come from and what is the name all about? Well, in the mid 90's adidas have been quite experimental in terms of proportions. Always aiming for the best performance products and most thought through designs, backed up by technology/ innovation. adidas created dope shoes. One of those was born in 1997. Back then the adidas Running team struggled to find a suitable name for that new model. Their daily routine also included a run through the German forest and Franconian villages. Every day the international running team passed a small village close to Herzogenaurach, where adidas is based, called "Falkendorf". The team decided to take that name for their new Running shoe. After internationalizing the spelling, the "Falcon Dorf" was born! Nowadays I think the shoe has never looked so fresh and felt so right to celebrate the bring back soon. The most interesting learning for me was that all the shoes the brand has created in the late 90's / early 000's represent the collective memory for the younger (than me, born in 1980) generation of sneaker heads. So this means these kinda quirky shoes is way more than a trend. This world is the archive for an entire generation. Of course we can't ignore the fact that the fashion world picked it up first and influenced a certain look. Especially Raf Simons spearheaded that chunky, clunky, 90's Tech Look by creating his first Ozweegos couple seasons ago. I am happy and proud to work for adidas to be able to pay homage to this special era of the brand. These projects prove that adidas has such a rich history to offer. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project. #Yung1 #Falcon #FalconDorf #teamadidas

Adidas Yung-1 Details

Three different colorways of the Adidas Yung-1 are floating around the internet today. Global Creative Director of Adidas Originals, Till Jagla, is teasing both a monochrome white colorway and orange “Goku” colorway along with a background story of the silhouette. Turns out that the model (with the Goku colorway) was first made in 1997 as a running shoe but has come back now to join the dad shoe trend.

The third colorway in the photograph below, as seen on Highsnobiety, is actually from Nike Lab. The account which leaked this Chalk White, Core Black, Collegiate Navy, and red colorway of the Adidas Yung-1 has also revealed some information about the Adidas Yung-1 release.

Rumored details are:

  • Price – $130
  • Style Code – B37615
  • Release Date – 2018

The photograph above (via Sneaker News) shows a range of rumored silhouettes along with their appointed character’s colors dictating the model’s colorway. However, the Adidas Yung-1 we’re seeing lately is quite reminiscent of Goku’s colors. And we don’t think that’s a coincidence. 

In the mockups of the collection, the new Adidas ZX 500 RM silhouette seems to represent Goku. And the Yung-1 is dressed in Frieza colors. But these images of the Adidas Yung-1 colorway seem to match even more.

According to Nike Lab, the colors consist of Hi-res Orange/Shock Yellow, and we can see the navy evidently in the shoe, making it the perfect colorway for Goku. Nike Lab also provided the following information:

  • Price – $130
  • Style Code – B37613
  • Release Date – June 18, 2018 (other sources say June 20, 2018)

 

But nothing is confirmed yet, but definitely look out for more information on the release. Save up and prepare to cop this huge collection because it will be limited.

And have no fear because you’re in good hands; Yeezy Proxies support these Adidas releases. Here are some helpful tips to help you cop limited kicks with sneaker proxies.
