Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera probably didn’t have a fresh pair of kicks in mind as inspiration for his push to achieve his 2012 Triple Crown Victory, but its definitely a nice perk. Led by Detroit sneaker boutique Burn Rubber, this special limited edition set of New Balance 574’s, appropriately named “The Miggy” and the subject of our recent feature, will be limited to 44 pairs – paying homage to Cabrera’s 44 home runs last season. Marking the occasion, the grey woven tongue is fitted with a label featuring three crowns while his stats and status as 2012 AL MVP are recorded inside, nicely complementing the Navy Blue suede overlays and orange accents. Scheduled to drop in line with the Tiger’s Home Opening Day game on Monday, April 8th, head to Burn Rubber with some real purpose to make sure you don’t miss out. In the meantime, check out the additional detailed shots after the click.
