Burn Rubber x Reebok Classics Phase 1 “Detroit Playas”
The Late Great Notorious B.I.G. AKA Biggie Smalls left his legacy behind to inspire future rappers and now…sneakers. As an early birthday gift, Detroit’s Burn Rubber is celebrating Biggie’s birthday a little bit early with a new Reebok sneaker in his honor.
The Burn Rubber x Reebok Classics Phase 1 is inspired by Biggie’s lyrics from the hit song “Hypnotize” (“Pink Stink Gators/My Detroit Players/Timbs from my hooligans in Brooklyn…”). His admiration of “Detroit Players” is present in the new Reebok sneaker. Pink suede and alligator-embossed leather are present on the upper. The sneaker is completed with a white midsole and a gum bottom.
Celebrate what would’ve been Biggie’s 44th birthday by copping a pair of the Burn Rubber x Reebok Classics Phase 1 “Detroit Playas” on April 30 at Burn Rubber’s Detroit location or online store.
