Sneaker Freaker is teaming up with New Balance once again. After launching the ‘Tassie Devil’ back in 2013, the two will release the Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 997.5 ‘Tassie Tiger’.
This modified version of the New Balance 997 now known as the 997.5 by Sneaker Freaker features a carved 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. Stepping up our packaging game, the global release arrives in a two-piece black box with a heavy-duty UV gloss.
The Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 997.5 Tassie Tiger will release on July 16th at Sneaker Freaker’s website while the Friends and Family boxset will be available at an in-store event on July 15th. Check out more photos of their latest collaboration below.
