Burn Rubber’s inspiration behind the New Balance MT580 “Workforce” Pack: When living in the Metro Detroit area you come across a lot of people that work for the auto industry. These people are not just workers to us. These people represent our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends. A couple of years ago when the Auto industry went through its toughest time our family and friends were affected heavily by the down turn. People lost jobs, insurance, houses, and a way of life that they were used to. Needless to say this was a time for restructuring and new beginnings. After witnessing the resiliency of the community around us we decided to do this project to pay homage to them. This is our way of showing that we notice and appreciate what these men and women have done four our country.
