We’re huge Carrots By Anwar Carrots fans here at KicksOneTwo. Anwar’s brand has developed an unmistakable signature aesthetic (with a whole lot of orange), has been rocked by everyone from Lil Yachty to Madeintyo, has collabbed with everyone from Alt Med to Rare Panther, and is truly on the come-up.
However, their most recent power move might just be their biggest yet. Anwar and Brooks have come together for a collaborative Beast (one of Brooks’s most iconic running shoes) done up in an orange, navy, and white colorway. It’s classic retro runner style meets modern streetwear … and it looks absolutely great. Anwar’s done it again.
However, the release process is almost as interesting as the sneaker itself. Anwar is hosting a “Runaway Carrots” tour that’ll make stops and set up pop-up shops in Washington, Oregon, and California where the shoe will be available for purchase alongside co-branded apparel before it actually releases through Brooks stockists on the 17th of December.
In a world full of Yeezys and Jordan I’s, it’s refreshing to see a change of pace from a brand like Carrots that’s really pressing the envelope as far as creating a new wave goes They could go down the same path and try to hop on what’s hot right now … but they’ve chosen to go in a different direction, a decision that commands respect. We’ll be anxiously awaiting the drop on the 17th … after all, who wouldn’t want to wear some runaway carrots on their feet?
