Vans Pride Classic Slip-On: A celebration of queer life
Since honoring the LGBTQIA+ group has been limited due to the pandemic, online shoppers can still commemorate this colorful event through rainbow footwear iterations released by various sneaker brands, like Adidas and Vans.
The California-based skatewear brand released several sandals, sneakers, and slippers to pay homage to the colorful lives of the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition, the brand announced its pledge of donation to several organizations that support gender and racial equality.
As part of the Pride month collection, Vans releases the Classic Slip-On in a revamped shade. This sneaker kept the classic profile of the Vans Slip-On tweaked with a colorful patchwork-like design upper to celebrate the spirit of creative self-expression.
- One version is made of an entirely sturdy canvas upper with a rainbow checkerboard pattern all over. Each color has a letter from the LGBTQIA, printed in white to add more character and style.
- The other version, called Patchwork, is covered with various colorful materials. Vans stitched suede, canvas, silk, and glitter to create a flashy multi-textured sneaker.
