Alexis Sablone Teams Up With Converse To Celebrate Pride With A New Shoe!

Thursday, June 3, 2021





 

 

Converse teams up with pro skater Alexis Sablone to release the new Alexis Sablone x Converse Jack Purcell "Pride" sneaker. This shoe drop comes right after Converse launched  it's 2021 Pride Collection and they continue to support and amplify LBGTQIA voices.

 

The shoes white, rubber-backed leather is embossed with an all-over Lambda pattern as a message of solidarity. Sablone’s reference to Lambda is a direct nod to the 1970s when the LGBTQIA+ community used the symbol to signal their queerness. A woven heel tab with the “More Color, More Pride” flag, more pops of color are included on the tongue and sockliner. In addition,  a transgender symbol is embroidered on the tongue against a Yellow edge glow as a reminder from Sablone that Pride is inclusive of gender identity as much as it is about sexuality while the sockliner reads “Proud” printed on a light blue lining.

The Alexis Sablone x Converse Jack Purcell “Pride” releases on June 4th at select retailers and Converse.com. The retail price is $85 USD.
