adidas Originals releases the second installment of its anime shoe collection and the Dragon Ball Z-inspired offerings pay tribute to the iconic showdown between Gohan and Cell. The drop is riddled with character references and is designed to evoke their battle that spanned over 11 episodes and is understood to be "the true finale of the Cell saga in the Dragon Ball Z canon."

The first pair of the anime shoe release is a tonal purple Deerupt silhouette with reflective hits, as well as a webbing mesh overlay that is a direct reference to the character's transformation into Super Saiyan 2. The second model embraces a similar silhouette but with a "distinctive green colorway" that references Cell's exoskeleton.

Both ultra-sleek and modern, the anime shoe offerings are completed with branding elements.
