Once again it's New Balance showing off their wares in the form of this dope collaboration with Michigan based Burn Rubber entitled "The Workforce Pack".
The duo of kicks celebrates, as the title suggests, the people who built Detroits Motor City into the hub of industry it is today. Two builds of the NB580 pay homage to the opposite ends of the employment spectrum and represent the blue and white collar workers of the city and state.
First up we see the the NB580BC, highlighting the manual workers of the City. We are presented with a tonal grey and black base highlighted with white branding and midsole. Complimenting this we see orange throughout the sneakers laces, top eyelets and 'Rollbar' section. This make up is then sat on a choice gum sole; setting the shoe off really well.
Next in the line up is the 580WC giving us a build for the boardroom. Black, grey white and a pale yellow colorway on a nubuck, mesh and leather build give the BC's sibling a fresher feel to it, with an icey, clear outsole keeping things clean.
This is the second NB x BR collab and it is waited on with baited breath throughout the sneaker world.
