So, was reading the news when I happened along this gem:
these awesome new shoes going on sale in Japan and China this week.

They've got a fairly tame color pallette, considering they're inspired by Evangelion, and they also come is cool packaging with as well at the reasonable price of ¥10,867 (or $100).

The article has some pictures and they certainly look wort the price.

Voted in college to be Most likely to Take Over the World, how to do that however, will require at least Four Evangelions. Thanks for the idea Misato-san!

They just look like shoes to me. What's supposed to be special about them aside from branding?

I don't like NBs and those are just as bad as the others.

So you can just slap the word "Evangelion" on anything and it'll be considered Evangelion-themed?

I have a purple shirt. I should go to a con and sell it to someone as a "Shogouki Shirt."

I think they're quite ugly myself, but I'm not a New Balance guy either; give me some Mizunos or Onitsuka Tigers, plz.

This is a bit of a missed opportunity though; surely I'm not the only Evageek that has ever thought that it looks like the Evas themselves are wearing sneakers? Why not come out with some shoes that would emulate them?
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!
