Hispanic Heritage Month is well underway, but Converse recently unveiled a footwear capsule for the occasion.

Titled “¡Mi Gente, Mi Alegría!” (“My People, My Joy), the collection features a mix of classic and modern sneaker designs rooted in a celebration of the diverse art, food and people that make up Hispanic culture. The iconic Converse All Star, updated Chuck 70 and fashion-forward Run Star Legacy CX couple off-white-colored canvas with a slew of vibrant hues. “Laser Lemon” and “Light Aqua,” for example, animate sole units on the most latter silhouette, while eye-catching patterns inject personality into the two former designs. Colorful gradients also land on the Converse shoes’ signature star patch, nodding to the vibrancy of Latino culture. Lastly, “Mi Gente” messaging is stamped on the outsole, license plate and sock-liner, a detail that was important for the Latin American designers that worked on the Converse capsule.

Enjoy campaign imagery of the pairs ahead, and find the full collection available right now via Converse.com.
