Crunch on the Crispy Carrots x DC Shoes ColabRelease: 15 January 2022
Anwar Carrots has used his eponymous label ,Carrots as a collaborative vehicle to unite his bold graphic style with just about every creative medium. Up next on Carrots’ colab checklist is a symbiotic union with deep-rooted OGs of the skate scene, DC Shoes. The brand has entrusted Carrots with a complete capsule collection consisting of the Lynx and Manteca models, plus some matching apparel to complete the head-to-toe look.
The highlight of this collection is the extremely bright Lynx, which is more or less a literal representation of the Carrots name. Tonal orange reflective uppers add an unconventional layer to the 90s skate favourite – and they still skate great! Check the video below for proof. Other bespoke touches to this design include green lining, laces and tongue branding, plus a tonal orange lateral DC logo that’s been flipped using Carrots’ distinct font.
For those looking to rep the colab in a more subtle way, there’s a duo of Mantecas that are a bit of a sleeper sneak. While the design is straight from the 2000s, DC have updated the proportions to a slimmer, sleeker build in line with contemporary skate aesthetics and simultaneously preserves its familiar lines. Carrots crop up via the black and orange palette, plus a fresh beige and green option.
The bumper collection also includes heavyweight tees and fleeces that are equally capable of withstanding the rigours of extreme lounging and effortless skatepark steez.
