Not one but two upcoming collabo projects set to release from Detroit, courtesy of Burn Rubber. Up first will be Rick Williams’ personal brand, The Distinct Life, in collaboration with Reebok to produce the “TDL Camo” Ventilator. The shoe features TDL’s signature camo print embossed on soft full grain leather, tan mesh and a gum sole. The shoe will drop on Saturday April 6, 2013 at midnight (aka Friday night/Saturday morning) in Burn Rubber’s online shop.
Following the Ventilator release will be theproject between Burn Rubber, Miguel Cabrera and New Balance dubbed “The Miggy,” which celebrates the Detroit Tiger’s MVP season of last year. Using NB’s 574 model, the sneaker features both navy and grey plus traces of orange, symbolizing the Tigers uniform, and detailed markings such a three crowns on the tongue for Cabrera reaching baseball’s coveted Triple Crown. Only 44 pairs – corresponding with the slugger’s home run total – will be released in-store at at Burn Rubber on April 13th, 2013 with remaining inventory made available online at 1pm EST.
