Bottom line

March with pride wearing this special edition Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Pride High Top. Far from the usual classic styling of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Tops, this Pride version flaunts an aesthetic full of colors to celebrate Pride month. 

While this high-top Chucks model is applauded by many for its eye-catching look, it also keeps up with its predecessors in comfort, versatility, and affordability. It can be customized, too – a feature well-liked by its followers. 

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Pride High Top is a unisex shoe with sizes starting from US 3 men’s (5 women’s). It runs big. Hence buyers, especially narrow-footed ones, are advised to get at least a half size smaller than their usual.  

The high-top profile of this shoe gives ample ankle support and protection. It has flat cotton laces in a traditional lace-up closure for a comfortable fit that can be tightened or loosened depending on the wearer's preference. Arch support is lacking.

Regardless of colorway, each shoe is infused with all-out, eye-catching, and standout colors combined with intricate design details that surely make a statement. 

This exceptional high top Chucks retained the old-school appeal of the original with its key features – low-key, lightweight, and durable canvas upper combined with the traditional lacing system and flexible rubber sole. But it only takes one look to know why it’s a standout. 

The Chuck Taylor All Star Pride High Top from Converse is probably one of the most colorful sneakers ever marketed. Its entire look from top to bottom took its cue from rainbow colors. Some colorways even don a rainbow-colored outsole. Each shoe also features trans flag patches as an applique for extra flair. 

Since 2014, Converse has continuously been releasing its annual Pride Collection in celebration of Pride month. The yearly event paves the way for the brand to show support in positive social change and the LGBTQ+ community as a whole.

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a significant historical event that helped set off the LGBTQ+ movement. Such celebration makes the Converse 2019 Pride Collection all the more so exceptional. The collection varies from low-tops to high-tops and also customizable kicks. 

Released as part of the Converse 2019 Pride Collection is a fun and lively upgrade to the classic Chucks High Top called the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Pride High Top. The shoe took the original Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Top as its base model and transformed the plain and basic canvas upper with colorful details that epitomize the Pride movement.
