Originally previewed early last month, we can now provide you with a closer look at Burn Rubber’s collaborative release with New Balance, as well as inform you with the release details. The Detroit-based boutique, which has been the area’s premier location for the most sought after sneakers and clothing since 2004, teamed up with New Balance on their classic 580 silhouette. The shop designed the sneakers with a grey base constructed mostly from suede and mesh, with a touch of white patent leather on the heel and tongue label and reflective 3M coating the grey foxing. Lining the sneakers is a preppy argyle print in orange, gray and black, the signature colors of the shop which can also been seen on the customized hang tag featuring the shop’s mascot, the Chef. Aside from a dope pair of sneakers, what’s most important about this collaboration is that it’s the first of it’s kind in the US, with Burn Rubber being the first boutique west of the Atlantic to have the honor of designing their own 580 runner.
The Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 will officially release in limited numbers exclusively through Burn Rubber on Black Friday, November 26th.
