Designed in collaboration with Detroit’s Burn Rubber, the MT580BC is the first drop from the highly anticipated ‘Workforce’ pack, a homage to Detroit’s blue and white-collar workers.

The MT580BC references New Balance’s great heritage, with nubuck and mesh uppers and 3M ‘night-running’ accents, with the addition of a ‘rollbar’ unit in the midsole, inspired by Detroit’s motor-industry.
