It isn’t all gloom and doom in the city of Detroit, especially when the Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera clenched the Triple Crown title in 2012, became the 17th baseball player to do so and the first since Carl Yastrzemski back in 1967. To mark the start of the 2013 baseball season this week, Burn Rubber, Detroit’s very own sneaker boutique, and New Balance will be introducing a limited edition Custom 574 aptly named “The Miggy.”
Limited to just 44 pairs only in reference to Cabrera’s American League-leading 44 home runs last season, the special edition features the Tigers’ team colors of Navy Blue overlays, White panelings, and Orange accents. The design also pairs off to a custom made New Balance cleat created exclusively for Cabrera and includes an woven tongue tag with his winning statistics on the inside and three crowns on the outside.
Scheduled to be officially unveil this Friday during an invite-only event at Royal Oak’s Emagine Theatre, where guests can also view the Detroit Tigers Home Opening Day game, the Burn Rubber x New Balance 574 “The Miggy” will be available starting next Monday, April 8th.
