Adidas is celebrating Pride month by updating its signature sneakers with rainbow paint splatters.
The "Pride Pack" includes the company's flagship kicks, the Stan Smith, which first hit store in 1965—the same year gays and lesbians held the first organized demonstration for LGBT rights, outside Philadelphia's Independence Hall.
The Superstar sneaker also got some rainbow love—it debuted in 1969, the year of the Stonewall riots.
Adidas announced the redesigned shoes on Twitter, stating "When walking together, each step forward matters. A portion of proceeds will go to New Avenues for Youth. #Superstar"
On Instagram, the company posted more photos of the Pride Pack, declaring "Not every step is easy. But we celebrate all those who aren’t afraid to take it."

A portion of the proceeds from the shoes will benefit the homeless organization New Avenues for Youth. Look for them in select stores starting June 6.
