To honor the LGBTQIA+ community, sportswear brands across the board are continuing the annual traditions of launching Pride-friendly footwear styles. The latest to join in on the action is Converse who has just officially introduced its sixth Pride collection that commemorates everyone’s individual journey of finding joy and freedom in simply being themselves.

Several silhouettes are involved in this capsule including the Chuck 70, Chuck Taylor All-Star in high, low and platform variations, the Run Star Hike which makes its first Pride collection appearance ever and a slide. As a homage to the Pride flag, rainbow graphics are and colors are distributed to each sneaker, some of which are more subtle and only touch on the laces and trimming like the Run Star Hike while others are more flamboyant such as the Chuck Taylor All-Star Hi and Lows. Additionally, the Converse By You, platform allows you to customize the “All Star” patches, license plates and laces with pride, bisexual, pan-sexual, lesbian, non-binary, and transgender, and unity-inspired flags.

Philanthropic efforts also coincide with this launch such as a portion of LGBTQIA+ community funding from Converse and It Gets Better Project [IGBP] will go towards social media creators as well as grants that will benefit Ali Forney Center, BAGLY and OUT MetroWest.

You can scoop up the entire collection right now via Converse’s online store.

Recently, Converse teamed up with iconic artist Keith Haring for a striking footwear collection.
