Yu-Gi-Oh! and adidas Join Forces to Create and Launch New Footwear Styles

"adidas Originals x Yu Gi Oh!" to be Unveiled Online and at Retail on October 7

NEW YORK, NY October 4, 2022 -- Get ready to unleash the ‘Duel Magic’ as the universes of adidas and Yu Gi Oh! have collided; spilling out an array of marvelous monsters, stripes, spells, trefoils, traps and most incredibly, a fresh deck of footwear, ranging from high-energy sneakers to fashionable sandals.

The announcement was made today by Jennifer Coleman, Vice President of Licensing Marketing, Konami Cross Media NY, Inc., a subsidiary of Konami Digital Entertainment, which manages the Yu Gi Oh! brand outside of Asia.

Available on October 7th, “adidas Originals x Yu Gi Oh!” will consist of two Adi2000 styles alongside two Adilette's, designed in collaboration with one of the most recognizable Anime brands in entertainment history.

Taking a step into nostalgia, the Adi2000 is a colorful, skate-inspired shoe that features two of the most well-known monsters from the trading card game and Anime series, with suede, mesh and leather upper, paying homage to its predecessors. The Adilettes are open-toe sandals featuring a rubber sole with inner and outer lining that features slip-on comfort for pairing with loungewear, perfect for Yu Gi Oh! fans to wear on their days off.

adidas Originals x Yu Gi Oh!” will feature two of the most legendary and powerful characters in the game; summon the Blue-Eyes White Dragon or Dark Magician through your Adi2000 sneakers or Adilettes. Each comes complete with their own accessory; one piece of the Exodia The Forbidden One as a metal hang tag to add even more magic to this release.
