Evangelion Sport Shoes

Neon Genesis Evangelion fans, fancy yourself a pair of Evangelion-themed sneakers? ^^

Introducing: EVA-Supernova 01 Unit 1 Model. XD

Produced by the collaboration of three companies in Japan: King Records, ABC-Mart, and Achilles for commemorating Evangelion New Theatrical Version, the shoes are going to be developed with a brand new design and material.

This merchandise will be limited in release, with sales priority given to pre-order. Two dates given for the commence of the pre-order period: June 27th through ABC-Mart outlets, and July 12th through website. Release date is August 12th, at 12,800 Yen each (inclusive of tax).

Definitely not the first Evangelion shoes to be released (see two more on Evangelion Store), but in terms of design, EVA-Supernova is definitely more closer to the anime. You as an Evangelion fan will be a total spot-on through this pair of shoes XD
