New Balance Creates Neon Genesis Evangelion Shoe Line

Hear that, Shinji Ikari? Now when you “Mustn’t run away” you will be doing it in style with these amazing ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ line of shoes.

Heck yes, I think I’m the first person on the internet to make that joke. Another score for Nerdbot’s resident Oldtaku.

According to reports, the shoes will be called FIRST IMPACT, SECOND IMPACT, and THIRD IMPACT. They are expected to go live in Japan on October 12. At this point, there is no word on whether the Evangelion shoes will be sold internationally, but fans are keeping their fingers crossed.

Fans can go ahead and pick out which of these shoes they’d like to nab. The first shoe features a purple-green palate with matching laces. The second moves into a pink-orange color scheme, and the third goes a whole new route with its black aesthetic. Each shoe features tech jargon from Evangelion, and NERV has its logo hidden on the shoes’ tongue.

Keep Going!

You know what?

Just buy the shoes.
