A Look at the Anwar Carrots x Puma Suede

 

The Pumas seen here are one of the dopest pairs of Pumas I have ever seen and it makes sense why. They were designed by Anwar Carrots of Peas and Carrots International fame.  What we see here are two dope pairs of  Puma Suede with a playful twist.

The sneakers come featuring a gum outsole, with two different colorways offered, one in black and the other in grey with accents of vibrant orange and teal are prominent on both.

The sneaker will launch exclusively in store and Peas and Carrots International on Saturday, June 21st, and will arrive at select retailers later on June 25th.

You can also check out Anwar’s interview with NiceKicks where he discusses the sneaker and his ethos:

The partnership came about through Roc Nation, where Casey Veggies is managed. Rich Kleiman called me asking for an influencer for the PUMA Social Club that we were doing. It went from making a bike to going to Brazil for a photoshoot, and eventually a shoe came about. The shoe is a year in the making….. Working on the Suede versus our own clothing line was pretty simple. We had three colors to work with, and I worked with the PUMA team on it. With the clothing line, you have to come up with concepts, the art director has to go through a bunch of designing steps and I have to choose what I like and what I don’t like. With the PUMA team, it was very simple – it was just colors and where I wanted everything to go.

Listen to Common Ft. Vince Staples “Kingdom”

“Kingdom” The Newest track from Common’s upcoming album Nobody’s Smiling is a Chi-minded anthem delivered over a masterful beat from legendary producer No I.D.

Reminiscent of Common’s older albums, this new track brings the streets, crime, and strife of Chicago back into focus with powerful lines like:

“The streets swallowing him, and I don’t want no hollows in him.”

Vince Staples closes out the track with a solid verse, his fourth mixtape Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2 was released earlier this year.

Keep an eye out for the soon to be released video by Hype Williams.

UNDRCRWN “Don’t Squeeze The Juice” Mugs and Prints

Today marks the 20th anniversary of THE white Bronco car chase, led by OJ Simpson.

 What we remember are the images of a white Ford Bronco interrupting the NBA Finals between the Houston Rockets and New York Knicks.

Being forced to watch the game in a small box in the upper right hand corner of our TV sets with the sounds of news reporters giving us the play by play of the car chase instead of the sounds of the game. These were moments that left an undeniable mark on the ’90s, and because of that we’ve created a limited edition”Don’t Squeeze The Juice” print coffee mug.

Only 32 prints & mugs available only at www.UNDRCRWN.com

ABOUT VICE SPORTS
VICE Sports is a piece of web realty dedicated to the game beyond the game, where the unbridled passion of the true fan shines through, for better or for worse. Headlined by original video content and distinct voices, VICE Sports shines a light on the endless array of characters both inside and outside of the game that tend to inspire such undeniable, and at times, unreasonable devotion. More often than not, the compelling stories and rich experiences that sit in the sports sidecar tend to eclipse the sport itself. We’re here to celebrate that.
