Available Exclusively at Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction on December 21
(FILA North America) – December 21, 2021 – FILA has teamed up with global anime powerhouse Toei Animation and its U.S. agent Funimation to launch a limited-edition Dragon Ball Super x FILA footwear collaboration. The collection, which first debuted at New York Comic Con in October, will feature a total of seven character-inspired styles. Offered in men’s and kids sizes, each style is a unique custom colorway with design elements that celebrate the most notable traits of fan-favorite characters from the massively popular Dragon Ball Super anime series produced by Toei Animation.
The footwear offerings include a mix of classic FILA silhouettes like the Original Fitness and F-13, as well as four distinct FILA Renno designs, one of the brand’s newest styles, first launched in early 2021. The Dragon Ball Super x FILA collection features seven different designs based on Goku, Goku Black, Vegeta, Golden Frieza, Trunks, Beerus, and Super Shenron.
FILA Renno x Dragon Ball Super Goku: Goku’s trademark look is represented by this FILA Renno design, with a colorway that offers a nod to his orange jumpsuit, secured with a blue sash and accessorized with blue wristbands and boots. Goku’s spiky hair is among his most distinguishing characteristics; when associated with his Super Saiyan form, it is glowing blonde like the shoe’s yellow laces.
FILA Renno x Dragon Ball Super Goku Black: This charismatic villain now has sneakers to match. Goku Black’s dark grey vest, long sleeve black turtleneck, red sash and white pointed boots, a style he developed after switching bodies with the Saiyan, are all represented within this design. Known for the power of his accessories, a pop of green was added to represent Goku Black’s Potara earring, with silver to represent his time ring and purple for the blade of violent energy that he creates.
FILA Renno x Dragon Ball Super Vegeta: This special-edition FILA Renno silhouette is a play on the signature look and traits of Vegeta, one of the most reliable and strongest warriors in the DBS universe The sneaker’s dazzling blue, white and metallic gold color palette is inspired by Vegeta’s battle armor and futuristic boots. The shoes also include a pop of bright blue that cleverly mimics the style and color of Vegeta’s SSGSS hairdo.
FILA Original Fitness x Dragon Ball Super Golden Frieza: This Original Fitness design is a play on the golden skin of this anime antagonist. The additions of purple are meant to represent the color as it appears on his head, chest, forearms, and shins.
FILA F-13 x Dragon Ball Super Trunks: This classic FILA high-top is styled just like Trunks. The sneaker was designed in faded denim and dark shadow hues, as a nod to Trunks’ signature denim jacket. With no detail left unturned, his red scarf is represented by the molten lava red laces, while the shoe's olive green FILA flag is meant to mimic the powerful sword Trunks uses in his biggest battles.
FILA Original Fitness x Dragon Ball Super Beerus: Crafted in a light purple hue with hints of metallic gold on the FILA flag and laces, this shoe captures the color of this cat-like creature and his golden yellow eyes. A pop of bright blue represents the pants he dons, as part of his traditional Egyptian clothing.
FILA Renno x Dragon Ball Super Super Shenron: With a vibrant color palette of red orange and blazing yellow, this Super Shenron-themed FILA Renno highlights the magical, larger than life eternal dragon. The design pays homage to the dragon’s bright yellow body with bat wings and striking crimson eyes.
All styles feature Dragon Ball Super logo treatments on the tongue, heel and sock liner. The FILA Renno styles retail for $100 (men’s) and $90 (kids); FILA F-13 for $80 (men’s) and $70 (kids); FILA Original Fitness for $75 (men’s) and $65 (kids).
