Three winters ago SNEAKER FREAKER was releasing into the wild the “Tassie Devil”. Now, another beatiful specimen made its appearance – the “Tassi Tiger”!
Named after the Austrilian marsupial, the collaboration between New Balance and SNEAKER FREAKER uses the 997.5 silhouette – a hybrid that blends both – 997 and 998 models.
“This tough sneaker beast is carved from a unique shade of ‘terracotta’ suede, which has been boldly embellished with salt and pepper speckle, apricot pops, 3M charcoal stripes and the blackest suede in the animal kingdom. Triangular forefoot fangs add carnivorous bite, while padded tongues are an elegant enhancement to the new model.” – Sneaker Freaker
The friends & family edition will launch with a special event on July 15, followed by an online release on July 16 online at SNEAKER FREAKER.
A wider release will go on sale from July 23 exclusively in Asia at select New Balance retailers.
A limited edition cover of the new Sneaker Freaker Magazine will also be included with every sale.
