The Evangelion x New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz sneakers are a nod to characters from the anime series.

The sneakers will come in four different colorways: gray, blue, purple, and dark green.

Similar to original Fresh Foam Cruz silhouettes, the shoes will be equipped with a synthetic mesh upper and a slip-on construction for easy wearing. They will also include Fresh Foam cushioning and gum outsoles.

Instead of a regular shoebox, these sneakers will be packed in a special white zip-up bag. It features both the New Balance and Evangelion branding on the front.

Priced at US$100 (approx. S$135), these collab sneakers are set to drop in China and Japan this Saturday, September 9.

Stay tuned to Straatosphere for localized drop information. Meanwhile, check out the New Balance 574 Sport model in four new colorways for the Sports collection.
