Here’s one for anyone who’s ever wanted to walk on rainbows – with Converse’s newest rainbow design Chuck Taylor sneakers; you can.

But there’s more to the 2016 Converse Pride Collection than just a colourful shoe. Inspired by all the LGBTA communities around the world, the three-piece collection was designed as a passionate reminder for universal tolerance, diversity, and equality – yes, even here in Singapore. It’s the perfect way to stick it to the Man while rocking some sweet kicks; and though nothing beats actually getting educated on the whole #lovewins matter, it’s nonetheless a thoughtful gesture, and a literal baby step forward.

So, the classic Converse Chuck Taylor gets a vibrant makeover in its hi and ox silhouettes. Think rainbow license plate and aglets, woven and/or all-over rainbow splattered canvas, and – our favourite – a premium woven upper in full rainbow colour scheme. Frankly, we’d step out in these any time, anywhere; even if the sneaks were originally designed to be worn at pride parades, concerts, jubilations, and beyond. It’s a worldwide celebration of universal equality and love that we’re thrilled to be a part of – plus, just in time for everyone to step out with pride, with June (ie. LGBT Pride Month) just around the corner. First up: Pink Dot.
