"The journey of acceptance is an ugly, typically messy one for many queer folks... I was one of them. It can be bumpy, sharp, and uncomfortable but ends up as it should," actor and All Star community member Caleb Felix said on Instagram.

Sneakers receiving the colorful Pride treatment include the Run Star Hike, Chuck 70 and Chuck Taylor All Star. There's also a fun slide perfect for the summer and select custom options for anyone who wants a one-of-a-kind shoe.
