Kick Pick: Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580

Rick: “The 580, because that’s the shoe that started it all for us. Without that shoe I don’t think there would be all these other shoes. I mean, there has to be a starting point, and that was it for us. So that will always be my favorite.“

Ro: “I’ll definitely say the original 580. The same thing he said, it’s the first one. We put our heart and soul and everything we could possibly think in our brains into that shoe. It’s kind of like when Nas does his first album, or you see a classic album, that’s how that shoe feels to me.”
