Burn Rubber x Reebok – ‘Spirit of Detroit’ Classic Leather
It has to be said, there’s some surprisingly original treatments to the 30 year old Classic Leather appearing recently — and this is certainly right up there on the freshness scale. Rick and Roland of Detroit-based Burn Rubber have collaborated with Reebok to produce these Blue, Cream and Gum beauties – even just saying the colourway makes them sound damn tasty! Here’s a video via HypeBeast explaining the collab and their own history ;

These fresh’n’tasties are released Saturday March 2nd, 2013 online at 10am EST (that’s U.S. Eastern Standard Time) and in store at 8am EST ; no prices mentioned yet. Info via Sneaker Freaker.
I’m very pleased to see this collab ; US sneaker culture seems so entrenched – almost paralysed – by Nike and Basketball, that some break from the repetition can only be a good thing. Hoping these go down well Stateside, and we see more collaborations — just keep the manufacturing quality up please Reebok, or you’re not going to do yourselves any favours winning over the Nike fans. ~BokOne
