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.
