Detroit’s Burn Rubber has teamed up with Reebok on a special-edition Ventilator that pays tribute to a former local landmark, situated in nearby Ontario, Canada. The now defunct Boblo Island Amusement Park was famous for its two “Boblo Boats,” the SS Ste. Claire and the SS Columbia, which serviced the facility for more than 85 years. The shoe is inspired by the dual ferry boats, with the white, gray, and blue representing the colors of the ferry boats, and the color pops standing in for the smoke stacks. The Burn Rubber logo on the heel and hang tag pays homage to the unmistakable Boblo Island logo. The kicks launch online on Saturday, May 16, at the stroke of midnight EDT.
