We love sneakers, Sneaker Freaker love sneakers, we love Sneaker Freaker. This coming Friday they will be launching their latest New Balance collaboration in the basement level of our store. They wanted a space that they could have everyone down to buy their shoe, hang out and catch up. We have a central location so it made perfect sense for us to play host, but please understand that’s all we are for this event. Below you will see information regarding Friday’s proceedings direct from Sneaker Freaker themselves.
“Thanks for your interest in the Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 'Tassie Tiger' release. As you may have guessed, hype is huge and the numbers are tight. The Tassie Tiger will not be available in the US or Europe and dudes are absolutely losing their minds. We wish we had enough pairs for everybody, but we don’t!
In the interests of transparency, we therefore wanted to let you know how the release event will work. One shoe per person, no exceptions! The price is $250. As this is a one-off event, we will not have Eftpos or Paypal available, so come prepared.
All pairs sold at the event come with the really crazy-coloured box, a special Tassie Tiger copy of Sneaker Freaker #Issue 36 and a tee shirt as well (while stocks last). Most importantly, this is Friends and Family. By that we mean Sneaker Freaker acknowledges ‘family’ – locals that have helped out at the Swap Meet or contributed to the magazine. These people are on a list and have been guaranteed a pair. We are simply returning favours, which we think is fair enough. If your name is on the list you must be there by 7pm in person to collect. If you don’t show up by this time, your pair will be sold to those waiting. There are NO HOLDS. All other pairs will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Make sure you get down there early. And don’t ask us what time you should get there. We don’t know!
We always try hard to look after the SF family and we hope everyone is happy with the way we are managing this release.
Keep your Tassie Tigers tight!”Read More
