Burn Rubber x New Balance 577

burn rubber detroit

New Balance are a shoemaker that harks back to The Coolector’s youth and it is a brand that we have a particular soft spot for, so when we saw that they had teamed up with Detroit based fashion label, Burn Rubber, to create a special edition series of footwear, we were understandably excited. And we were right to be so as the undeniably impressive finished product above admirably illustrates.

The great limited edition creation tips a nod to Detroit’s legacy of supplying some of the world’s best boxers – such as Floyd Mayweather Jr, Emanuel Steward and Pinklon Thomas – and the style of New Balance’s and Burn Rubber’s trainer takes its design aesthetic from Michigan’s incredibly rich boxing heritage. If you’re a fan of New Balance trainers and, to be honest, who isn’t, then you’ll definitely find it difficult not to be impressed with this visually arresting pair that not only look great but also offer all the durability and functionality that you’d come to expect from a pair of New Balance. Check out a few product shots of this eye-catching pair below:
