The vibrant new version, created in partnership with the Gilbert Baker Estate, includes a multicolor front strap that pays homage to Baker’s iconic rainbow flag (which is now recognized as a global symbol of unity among the LGBTQIA+ community). The style also retains beloved features of the original model, including a soft foam sole for lightweight cushioning and plush woven design in the upper for added comfort.
The JD Benassi Be True slides are currently available for $60 on Nike.com and at select Nike stockists for a limited time. They join a range of rainbow-accented apparel, accessories and sneakers — including the Air Max 90, Air Max 720, Air Tailwind and Zoom Pegasus Turbo — that honor Pride month.
While sales from the collection aren’t directly tied to charity, the Swoosh notes it will be supporting more than 20 organizations advancing the LGBTQIA+ community through grants administered by the Charities Aid Foundation of America.
