Pride Month is here and footwear brands are celebrating with a number of themed releases.

Adidas ventures into the Dark Side with their new Star Wars collab

Check out some of the best Pride Month footwear you can cop this month.

This month marks the annual LGBT Pride Month, which honors the Stonewall riots of June 1969. 50 years on, the significance of that event still serves as a reminder to the LGBT community and the world to unite and celebrate love and equality.

Unless you prefer painting your own footwear in the LGBT flag’s rainbow colors, check out these kicks you can wear to signal your support for Pride Month whether you’re part of the LGBT community or an ally. We’ve rounded up a list of ten Pride-inspired footwear from major brands such as Nike, Adidas, Converse and Dr. Martens.

Nike BETRUE collection

Political activist and designer Gilbert Baker came up with the rainbow flag in 1978. It’s since become the most recognized symbol of Pride for the LGBT community. To celebrate Pride Month this year, Nike has partnered with the Gilbert Baker Estate to dress its BETRUE collection – comprising the Air Max 90, Zoom Pegasus Turbo and Air Max 720, among others – in the original eight-color flag. Retail prices start from S$209.
