Half of the sneaker game is knowing what kicks are out when, and which shops have them. Our Shelf Space column looks at what shops around the country are stocking in a given week, and gives a quick glimpse into the mind of the buyer/manager/owner who put them there.

As we continue our mission of bringing you inside the best sneaker spots from around the U.S., we stop in Burn Rubber, located in Royal Oak, Michigan. Rick Williams and Ro Coit gave us a look at 10 of the hottest sneakers currently sitting on their shelves. Hit the jump to see all their picks as well as what they have to say about each one.
