With the current quarantine mode, most of us are staying home and there is almost no need for fancy footwear for the time being. However, lucky for us a good pair of footwear refashioned with rainbow colours will never go out of style. In that note, here are five brands that have released new footwear to support the LGBTQ+ community as we celebrate this year’s pride month.

If you prefer to go chic with pumps or bold with jogging shoes, Ruthie Davis‘s Pride Collection is offering both with its Pride Pump and Pride Kick respectively. While both the footwear are covered in rainbow colours, the Pride Pump is accentuated with the word LOVE written in white and bold and the Pride Kick features white lace and white platforms.
