Burn Rubber x Reebok Question for Apollos Young

burn rubber x reebok question for apollos young 1 Burn Rubber x Reebok Question for Apollos Young

Who is Apollos Young? You don’t know? He’s that Pistons player that locked down 54 pts, 31 rebs, 22 steals, 0 assts in a game and is on record for being the first to ever smoke a black & mild during a game. Alright truth be told he’s a fictional ball player sort of along the lines of Johnny Kilroy, a Detroit Pistons Bad Boy that apparently outlasted that era just a bit. The character is paid homage to in this crazy collab from Burn Rubber and Reebok, lighting up the Reebok Question (renamed here as the Reebok Inquiry, Apollos Young’s signature sneaker) with an old school Pistons vibe centered around this Dennis Rodman meets Chuck Norris character. Stay with us after the jump to check out the ostrich leather sporting Reebok Question remix and look for them to drop September 1st a 12PM at Burn Rubber.

Now that the red and white version of the Reebok Question has brought so many of us back into the Reebok retro fold it’s time for the rest of the industry to take a stab at it, with shops like Packer Shoes and Burn Rubber lining up to remix the Allen Iverson classic. Just now we’re getting the first full look at what the latter spot has cooked up, sporting a colorway that almost looks like a late 90s Detroit Pistons homage that dons some awesome details like an Ostrich leather up top and a speckled almost Stash-style sole on the bottom (which is in turn updated with their Chef logo on the back bumper). Hit the jump with us to check out the full shots of the upcoming Burn Rubber x Reebok Question and stick with Sneaker News for release info.

Get ready to guard against international prank day on the first of next month, and don’t make yourself look like a fool on March 1st by overlooking this new drop, either.  Now’s the time to get your affairs in order to make the launch of the Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580WC, the smartly-colored ‘White Collar’ edition from the Detroit boutique’s ’Workforce Pack’ of MT580s. They primarily consist of an almost-black suede that finds true grey accents on the mesh parts and Rollbar, plus just enough pale yellow to represent the Dwight Schrutes of the world. So which is the better ‘Workforce’ MT580? False; both of them are equally superb.  But only one of them is available for a limited time, so act now to grab them from select NB retailers like West.

Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 ‘White Collar’ – Release Date

Especially now that GM’s back on top of the automotive world, there are few cities in the US that’d be better suited to birth something called the ‘Workforce Pack of Burn Rubber‘s hometown of Detroit .  And with Michigan looking to becoming something like ‘the Silicon Valley of the midwest’, not only can we get inspiration from the hardworking factory employees, but also the guys who spend time behind computers and in cubicles.  The Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 ‘White Collar’ offers the flipside to a ‘Blue Collar’ drop from last month, its blocking identical but done in a darker shade.  That solemn look is echoed on the pinstriped bag that holds these like an exectuive two-piece, a nice bonus package for which you’ll be eligible when these hit select New Balance retailers on March 1st.

Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 ‘Workforce Pack’ – Video

January 20th, 2012 by | 6 comments

burn rubber x new balance mt580 workforce pack video Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 Workforce Pack   Video

We already gave you a breakdown on the inspiration for Burn Rubber’s second go-round with New Balance, a two part pack that pays homage to the 9-5′ers that make Detroit tick. Delving deeper into the background of the two pairs of New Balance MT580′s is this video spot, which follows two characters on their way two work, members of the White Collar and Blue Collar, respectively. The parallel release dates (February 1st for the ‘Blue Collar’ and March 1st for the ‘White Collar) extend the metaphor a bit further, hitting on the first of the month-the day when the workforce is united in collective check-cashing. This sort of regional tribute has done wonders for New Balance in the past (think the Kennedy’s), so will Burn Rubber strike gold again? Let us know if you’re feeling these and be sure to check the video after the jump.
