New Balance has teamed up with Detroit’s Burn Rubber to produce this premium 577 runner. The colour/material theme is inspired by famous Detroit boxer Joe Louis. When Joe was little, his mom encouraged her son to become a violinist, sacrificing the little that they made to help Joe break-out from his peers. After being introduced to boxing from a friend, Louis began carrying his gloves in the violin case to prevent his mom from finding out about his new love and the rest is history. The violin case with boxing gloves and towel are portrayed on the in soles of these sneakers. The outsole of the sneakers is done with Burn Rubber’s signature gum rubber sole. Available in store at our Gastown and Toronto locations November 30th.
