Converse's Pride Collection Is Here, and Holy Glitter, These Sneakers Are Incredible
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Pride, and Converse truly went all out to celebrate the momentous occasion. Similar to last year's collaboration with Miley Cyrus, the collection features both sneakers and apparel that's practically dripping in glitter and rainbow motifs. Each pair of shoes boasts multicolored soles — some are decked out with every color of the spectrum as a nod to the Pride flag, while other pairs feature light pink, blue, and white stripes, inspired by the trans flag. Are they the perfect shoes for marching in Pride parades or what?!
The official campaign for Converse's 2019 Pride collection stars six individuals with ties to the LGBTQ+ community proudly showing off their favorite pieces from the line. See and shop every vibrant item ahead, and you'll help support local and global LGBTQ+ partners, including the It Gets Better Project, Fenway Health, and Out MetroWest.
