Coach is in the Pride spirit, releasing its third annual Pride collection today. The line launches just in time to kick off Pride Month in June, which celebrates LGBTQIA+ communities.

The latest collection by Stuart Vevers spans a wide range of categories, including jewelry, clothing and numerous handbags ranging from backpacks to totes and crossbodies. All are peppered with numerous references to the Pride flag’s rainbow hues, ranging from multicolored “C”-shaped links to rainbow stripes. However, most prevalent is a multicolored take on the American heritage brand’s interlocking Signature “C” logo — which manifests itself across a range of its signature shoe styles. The styles are all made to be worn by anyone, though they do feature standard men’s and women’s sizing depending on silhouette.

The Tapestry label’s signature sneakers take center stage, in a range of silhouettes. The brand’s unisex slip-on Skate sneakers, retailing for $150, get a Pride revamp with rainbow Signature prints across their beige coated canvas uppers. Completing the pair are white cushioned soles and rubber outsoles for easy wear, as well as brown leather trim and elastic panels for a traditional touch.

Similarly, the same Pride prints and materials are repeated for its women’s $195 Citysole High Top sneaker,. However, this style  is boosted by a slightly thicker rubber platform sole and ankle-high uppers.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the label’s also dipped its toes — literally — into summer-worthy Pride footwear as well. The women’s $95 Natalee jelly sandals feature glossy red rubber uppers with a T-strap thong silhouette and slingback strap. Completing the flat pair are Coach’s “C” logo and a footbed covered in its rainbow Signature logo print.
