Whether you see a glitter rainbow, a symbol of pride and love, or just a really kitsch shoe that’s an antidote to any ‘meh’ day, there’s far more to this new incarnation of the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor boot than meets the eye.

For a start, it’s designed by Hollywood music royalty (and almost honourary Aussie by Hemsworth association), Miley Cyrus. Secondly, it raises money for a community that’s close to her heart.

A passionate champion of LGBTQ+ youth causes, the singer collaborated with famous artists including Ionut Radulescu, Liam Donnelly and Rooney, to turn her cute design concepts into a seven-piece capsule collection of shoes and apparel called the Converse Pride Collection by Miley Cyrus. (Side note: all of the artists donated their time.)

A portion of all sales will be donated to global LGBTQ+ charity partners, including Minus18 in Australia, RainbowYOUTH in New Zealand, plus the Happy Hippie Foundation (founded by Cyrus) and It Gets Better Project, both founded in America.

Converse Pride x Miley Cyrus Chuck Taylor All Star 70 High Top Multi, $140. SHOP NOW

So, setting aside the fact that glitter rainbow motifs are a legitimate runway and street style fashion trend this season, these boots will do far more for other people than just brighten up their day as you stroll by.

The Converse Pride Collection by Miley Cyrus is only available at the Converse online store, ranging from $60 to $140. Shop the full collection here.
