Converse x Pride

This summer, we’re celebrating the journey and joy in finding your pride.

For our sixth annual Pride collection, we tapped a group of All Stars to create a new product collection by and for the LGBTQIA+ community. Inspired by the individual stories of these five All Stars from around the world, each style from the collection features a graphically-driven capsule and campaign that explores the duality of struggle and joy along the journey to self-love. The graphic, featuring jagged mountains that ultimately transition into free-flowing blossoms of joy, unifies the collection. We’ve all been on our own journey, but together we march down the same road with all-out pride.
