Three years after the “Tassie Devil” collab, Australias Sneaker Freaker Magazine and New Balance are back with another animal inspired sneaker. The “Tassie Tiger” is inspired by the tasmanian tiger that lived in Australia until the 1930s and uses NB’s 997.5 hybrid silhouette – a mix between the popular 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 Sneaker Freaker Magazine X New Balance 997.5 “Tassie Tiger” will be released as a friends & family edition at a special event on July 15. On July 16 you’ll have the chance to get a pair from sneakerfreaker.com before the Tassie Tiger will be wider released throughout Asia on July 23. We don’t have any information about a worldwide release yet!

Die Inspiration des “Tassie Tiger” kommt vom tasmanischen Tiger, der bis in die erste Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts  auf dem australischen Kontinent anzutreffen war. Als Basis haben sich die australischen Kollegen den 997.5 ausgesucht, ein Hybrid zwischen den beliebten 997 und 998 Modellen.
