Since 2015, Converse has released an annual Pride collection to celebrate the movement’s origins, and this year’s slate of shoes is inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a turning point in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. Consisting of high and low-top versions of both the classic Chuck Taylor and the upgraded Chuck 70, the collection is unabashedly loud and proud, centered around a lightning bolt design and plenty of glittering details. Each pair presents its meaningful symbolism in a different way, with the shimmering Chuck 70 High boasting a design inspired by Pride/trans flags, the Chuck Taylor Ox calling upon rainbow gradient accents, the Chuck Low featuring a sparkling tongue and full rainbow upper, and last but not least the Chuck Low featuring all-over printed bolts. Each is then completed with Pride/trans flag lace tips, “1969-2019” on the back of the tongue, and midsole bumper details. The quartet of shoes is also accompanied by a selection of similarly styled apparel and accessories. Check out the designs below, and head to Converse.com to grab your favorite piece, with prices ranging from $25-$100 USD.
