For Chicago, From Chicago | Caro from Tortugas

For our Chicago '23 collection (here) we tapped run community luminaries from the all over the scene. Caro (aka @c_aro0104) stays fit with Tortugas, a crew running out of Harrison Park known for its inclusivity.

HB: What excites you about running right now?

Caro: With my first marathon only a month away, the way I push my body to run further and further each week, it’s amazes me and makes me feel invincible.

HB: What do you love about Chicago?

Caro: Chicago has the best running communities and as someone that was battling postpartum depression last year, I found myself in the running communities.

HB: What's your favorite thing about running with your crew?

Caro: My favorite part of the running with tortugas is how they show up for their community, the variety of cultures, ethnicities, and how welcoming they are to every individual. They’re all about getting out there and moving no matter the pace.

HB: As the world gets ready to join the Chicago running scene in October, what should they know?

Caro: No matter the pace, you are a runner and we all started somewhere. It’s remember your reason when you feel like quitting.


Inspired by 90s era Chicago when it defined sport and culture, Heartbreak’s ‘23 Chicago celebration collection melds hoop dreams with running fashion.

In 1995-96, the Bulls & MJ dazzled the world with their commitment to excellence every single night going 72-10, setting the regular season win record. The same year, they debuted the hot new black pin stripe uniform. That season and that team inspired athletes of every generation since for their drive, their dominance, & their style.

For Fall 2023, Heartbreak debuts its “Flying H” monogram. Designed in-house by Lucas Larson, the subtle lines of the pattern guide the eye with strong direction - always forward, always up.

Colored and styled with a nod to the greatest team ever, this one’s for our Chicagoans who run the streets all year, always forward, raising spirits, elevating the game, and inspiring the world.
