Neon Genesis Evangelion x New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz Coming Soon

Date: October 09 2018

Here’s another killer collaboration for the OG otakus — New Balance are teaming up with Japanese retailer GU for three new Neon Genesis Evangelion—themed Fresh Foam Cruz colourways.

The new takes go for more adventurous hues compared to last year’s Evangelion x New Balance drop. Based off the manga’s Evangelion Unit-01, Unit-02 and Unit-03 mecha robots, the pack’s first two styles — FIRST and SECOND IMPACT — feature vivid detailing, including blue/yellow/red or grey/red/yellow uppers and midsoles. The THIRD IMPACT goes for a more understated look, with black and grey hues atop a speckled midsole. The midsoles and outsoles feature motifs based on the anime classic (‘EVA-08’ and ‘EVA 01 — TEST TYPE’), while a gnarly NERV logo hits the tongue — perfect for battling it out with the Angels.

The pack drops exclusively on New Balance Japan’s official website on October 12. We’ll keep you posted on a wider release.
