Converse and Alexis Sablone Celebrate Pride with Limited Release Jack Purcell

Alexis Sablone Converse Jack Purcell Pride

Following the unveiling of the brand’s 2021 Pride collection and annual LGBTQIA+ youth partners, Converse continues to amplify the voices of the LGBTQIA+ community with a sneaker designed in collaboration with barrier-breaking skateboarder and multi-talented creative Alexis Sablone.

For this project, the model she picked was the Converse Jack Purcell, which is her favorite sneaker to skate in. The silhouette’s White, rubber-backed leather is embossed with an all-over Lambda pattern as a message of solidarity. Sablone’s reference to Lambda is a direct nod to the 1970s when the LGBTQIA+ community used the symbol to signal their queerness. 

Contrasting the white upper is a woven heel tab with the “More Color, More Pride” flag, first concepted by social justice advocate Amber Hikes, to include Black and Brown stripes. These pops of color continue on the tongue and sockliner: a transgender symbol is embroidered on the tongue against a Yellow edge glow as a reminder from Sablone that Pride is inclusive of gender identity as much as it is about sexuality while the sockliner reads “Proud” printed on a light Blue lining. 

Below, check out more images of the Alexis Sablone x Converse Jack Purcell ‘Pride’ that will give you a closer look. A release will take place at select retailers and Converse.com on June 4th. The retail price is $85.
