While several parades celebrating the LGBT community have been canceled for public health safety reasons, shoppers can still commemorate the month with rainbow shoes. Vans is among the several footwear brands that offer rainbow options, including sneakers, slip-ons and sandals.
In addition to selling rainbow shoes and laces, Vans recently announced on its website that it will be donating $50,000 to the GSA Network, an LGBT organization that focuses on racial and gender equality for trans and queer youth.
The brand also rolled out a new season of its YouTube series, “Loveletters to Skateboarding.” The show’s latest six-part series is tilted “Loveletter To LGBTQ+.” The new season features several remarkable queer skaters, including Cher Stauberry, a trans skater based in Oakland, California. It was the last season hosted by legendary skateboarder, Jeff Grosso, who unexpectedly passed away earlier this year.
Whatever you plan on doing to commemorate Pride Month, take a look at some of the colorful slip-ons, sneakers and slides Vans has available online at Vans.com.
