Undoubtedly, Christopher Allan a.k.a. @czarector is one of Australia’s favourite sneaker customisers. Following his eminent Sanada Yukimura Gel-Lyte III custom, Chris has crafted yet another impressive masterpiece. He’s always produced dope customs and this time it’s no exception. Tying in nicely with Sneaker Freaker’s ‘Tassie Tiger’ release last Friday, his latest achievement is a custom rendition of the sneaker aficionados’ iconic ‘Tassie Devil’ shoe. A shoe originally conceived as a New Balance 998 collab.
Using the 2015-released 997GY2 model as a base, Chris delivers his interpretation of the coveted purple sneakers. His work of art in replicating the different shades of purple all throughout the sneaker leaves me in awe. Including the finer details like the speckled midsole and the perfectly straight teeth detailed with the utmost precision.
We think it’s dope. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!
