Wondering what makes this collection so unique and incredible? Read on to learn about everything there’s to know about the Converse Pride collection.
Converse & Pride
Converse has a long and impactful history of celebrating Pride and providing a platform to people who need representation the most. The footwear company released its first Pride collection in 2015 and has been doing so every year since then. It used its profits to donate more than $1.3 million to domestic and global non-profit LGBTQIA+ organizations.
Furthermore, the company has played a significantly active role in spreading awareness about contributing to organizations aiming to assist the global LGBTQIA+ community. It provided these organizations with substantial helpful resources during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to stay vocal about the increasing need for LGBTQIA+ rights globally.
The Sixth Annual Pride Collection
Like every year, the Converse Pride Collection 2021 is unique and even better than the years before it. All the designs are dedicated to people’s journey of finding the courage to achieve the freedom they deserve to live life on their own terms. One of the special editions of this collection includes the Run Star Hike.
The company designers curated this year’s Pride Collection by using graphics on footwear. These unique and powerful designs address the struggle and joy involved during the process of finding self-love.
Converse, known for its customizable options, has a lot to offer in its Pride Collection. Customers can now personalize their Converse footwear by choosing their favorite laces, “All Star” patches, license plates, and more inspired by the acronyms on the LGBTQIA+ flag.
This gives bisexual, pansexual, lesbian, non-binary, and transgender individuals an incredible opportunity to use footwear for personal expression. The company will donate a portion of its profits from the Pride Collection to the It Gets Better Project. It’s a unique digital project for celebrating Pride on social media platforms on TikTok.
