New Balance 'TASSIE DEVIL' (NB 998) - Sneaker Freaker 10th Anniversary

Every sneakerhead certainly knows Sneaker Freaker magazine and if not a paper magazine, then at least their online version at sneakerfreaker.com. The Sneaker Freaker project was founded in 2002 and in 2012 they decided to release a very successful collaboration with the New Balance.

New Balance 998 Black/Purple - ‘TASSIE DEVIL’ Sneaker Freaker

The name of their collab was ‘TASSIE DEVIL’ and release year was 2013. The chosen model was New Balance 998.

The decent upper part of the sneakers is black and purple. The midsole, on the other hand, is white with light violet elements and dark dots.

The Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 ‘Tassie Devil’ has been hugely influenced by the native Australian marsupial, the Tasmanian Devil, which is unfortunately suffering from an epidemic that in turn is threatening their survival. To help that this doesn’t happen, SF are making a healthy donation to ‘Save The Tasmanian Devil’ with the sale of each shoe to help save these unique animals.

An immortal collaboration, which still fascinate even after many years.
