Converse Says ‘Yes To All’ For LGBTQ Pride Month
Converse is developing a good habit we can all get behind. As you may remember, last year the brand released a collection of sneakers in support of LGBTQ Pride month, and this year they’re going for it again.
The month of June is LGBTQ Pride Month, selected as such to commemorate the Stonewall riots that took place at the end of June in 1969. This year Converse commemorates the occasion with a new round of shoes to add to the collection.
The Converse Pride Collection is made up of our favorite Cons silhouette, the All Star and All Star ’70. The variations include rainbow-covered high tops, and lows with a colorful star pattern covering every inch. The slightly more subtle versions come with white or black bases, with far out patches tacked on all over.
If you like the idea, but are not in love with the styles, you can actually customize your own pair. Best of all, net proceeds of direct sales of the Pride Collection will go to It Gets Better and the Happy Hippy Foundation.
Taking it back to the beginning, this vintage sneaker pays homage to the start of the celebration. Try the All-Star '70 1st Pride Parade High Top, $110.
Our favorite in the collection is the vibrant All Star Pride Mesh Low Top, $90.
The All-Star Pride Geostar High Top, $65, has a sweet gradient of all the best colors in the rainbow.
All of the 2017 Converse Pride Collection sneakers feature bottoms that are as bright as they are conversational.
The variations available in this year's limited edition collection include lots of highly saturated hues.
Take a blank canvas and make it your own. Everything on the Custom Chuck Taylor Pride High Top, $85, is customizable from the color to the eyelets and laces.
All net proceeds from the Taylor Pride All Star High Top, $85, will support LGBTQ youth organizations.
The All Star Pride Mesh High Top, $95, takes the vivid rainbow but applies it in a meticulously textured way. The results are perfection.
