After a bit of a delay, Sneaker Freaker and New Balance have now detailed the release info for their collaborative drop-off of the 998. The Tassie Devil take will unfortunately not see a U.S. release, as Sneaker Freaker explains the situation as follows:
"As most of you know, our Sneaker Freaker x Tassie Devil NB998s were originally scheduled for release late last year. Due to some last minute production issues, the OG date was pushed back. The good news is that we can now confirm they'll finally be released this weekend!
The bad news? There are no pairs allocated for retailers in North America. We're not exactly sure why, but we do have limited pairs in our SNEAKER WEBSHOP, so if you want to make sure you get a pair, check back with us on Saturday.
MARCH 16 – LOCAL RELEASE
Hit up Highs & Lows, Laced, Espionage, Up There and Sure for info.
MARCH 30 – GLOBAL RELEASE
Top tier NB stores in Europe and Asia will release the shoes March 30."
Proceed accordingly and best of luck.
