The 'Tassie Devil' is on the loose again! New Balance have resurrected four classic colab colourways to celebrate 30 years of the 574, and Sneaker Freaker's very own Tassie tribute is leading the charge.
The 'Tassie Devil' started life on NB's 998 in 2012 to celebrate Sneaker Freaker's 10th anniversary. The aggressive make-up – named for Tasmania's weird and wonderful carnivorous marsupial – featured no less than five shades of purple from lavish lilac to vicious violet.
A set of sharp fangs at the toe weren't enough to keep collectors at bay: pairs were snapped up in a frenzy – fought over, flipped and even faked!
