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.

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.

Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 ‘Workforce Pack’ – Blue Collar | Release Info

Their first MT580 was so good that not only was it the highest ranking New Balance release in the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2010, but Burn Rubber is going to double up for the second go-round.  The Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 ‘Workforce Pack’ also duplicates a theme found on the upcoming ‘Workwear Pack’ of 574s, but a split between ‘blue collar’ and ‘white collar’ inspirations gives these a unique identity.  One could even read deeper and find the past and present of Burn Rubber’s hometown of Detroit, the once booming auto capital of the world that’s enjoying the early stages of a renaissance by attracting IT companies with affordable rents and plenty of skilled workers.  But even if you just want to enjoy the shoes at their surface level, there’s plenty of skill apparent there as well, with the above pictured dark grey edition offering a luxurious build juxtaposed against the gritty inspiration.  The ‘white collar’ joints should be on the way in March, but for now, it’s certain that this Burn Rubber MT580 ’Blue Collar’ will be out at select NB retailers like Concepts on February 1st.

Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 ‘Workforce Pack’

December 20th, 2011 by | 9 comments

Detroit’s Burn Rubber stole the New Balance spotlight last year, becoming one of the brand’s best received collaborators and securing a lofty spot in the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2010.  Store owner Rick Williams showed off his extensive NB collection over the summer, but in terms of a follow-up to last year’s superb MT580s, all we got was a pixelated teaser shot.  Seems like the photo was a bit misleading, because while the dark silhouette being hidden is clearly one of these upcoming Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580s, there are actually two pairs involved here.  One comes in navy blue with grey and golden accents to represent ‘blue collar’ while the black pair adds a soft beige and suggests a ‘white collar’ feel.  The Workforce Pack could have exploited the 99/1 meme that’s been so prominent in the public discourse this fall, but it skips the fighting and brings together these two ‘classes’ in perfect harmony.  Will you occupy the Burn Rubber x New Balance ‘Workforce Pack’ when they release next year?  New images of both pairs might aide in your decision, and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for the US release date.  via HS

Throughout the Distinct Life x New Balance 30 for 30 project, Rick Williams showed us his arsenal of NB’s, rocking a different New Balance shoe for every day in the month of June. We knew the Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 would show up in there somewhere since Rick is the co-owner of that fine Detroit establishment, but he threw us for a loop on Day 30, rocking the next collaboration between Burn Rubber and New Balance, slated for a 2012 release. He’s keeping them fairly secretive, as you can see from the “censored” view above, but there’s no doubt these are gonna be hot. Hit the jump for the full video of the New Balance 30 for 30 project, where you can see each sneaker Rick rocked this month and stayed tuned with us for more photos as soon as they surface. via The Distinct Life
