The limited edition Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 “Tassie Devil” sneakers have been on sneaker fans’ radars for a while now, and they’ve finally got a concrete release date. Even better news is that it’s coming up very soon: Sneaker Freaker’s native Australia will get it on March 16th, while people in Europe and Asia will have to wait until March 30th.

The name “Tassie Devil” is reflected in the speckled midsole and fang marks that are similar to features of the actual Tasmanian Devil. This isn’t just an arbitrary design choice either, as Sneaker Freaker will be donating a portion of the proceeds to rescuing endangered Tasmanian Devils in Australia.

You’ll also be able to get pairs of the Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 “Tassie Devil” from very select New Balance retailers across Europe and Asia. As for North America, it looks like it’ll be eBay for us.
