Sneaker Freaker just confirmed the colorway of their upcoming collaboration with ASICS entitled “Tiger Snake”.

Here’s the official press release:

Christened the GEL-Tiger Snake, this venomous varmint is a nod to our native antipodean fauna and ASICS’ historical origins as the Onitsuka Tiger company.

Aggressive, deadly and badass to the bone, the tiger snake has a fearsome reputation as a predator. With its luxurious sandy belly and stripey black upper, the snake’s natural camouflage is perfect for hiding in plain sight.

Buttery beige cowhide is next-level opulence, while micro-perf toe panels and suede stripes add subtle sprinkles of texture. On the medial side, poppin’ pink reflective 3M adds a dazzling counterpoint to a blacked-out midsole laced with neuro-toxic splatter. Solid gold text across the nubuck heel is a touch of class among the mayhem. This GEL-Tiger Snake has serious fangs!

To mark the occasion, we’ve produced a heavily customised GEL-Tiger Snake box complete with psyched-out illustrations from Alexander Heir. Screen-printed by hand using fluoro ink infused with actual tiger snake venom, the packaging is just as deadly as the GEL-Tiger Snake.

Simultaneously, they revealed how you’re able to cop them. At the Sneaker Freaker shop, you can now “show interest” and when your pair is ready, you will receive a direct link in your mailbox. Click the box below for a direct link to the Sneaker Freaker shop:
