    Converse has announced the release of a new line of shoes celebrating LGBT culture alongside a marketing campaign featuring characters of various sexual orientations, including an 11-year-old ‘drag kid’ who goes by the stage name ‘Desmond Is Amazing.’

    “We’re happy to launch our Pride Collection, partnering with six individuals connected to the LGBTQ+ community who show the power of expressing one’s true self,” the apparel company tweeted on Monday.

    Desmond is highlighted on the Converse website wearing a flamboyant outfit and make-up, striking a dramatic dance pose alongside a quote stating, “There is no normal.”

    A brief bio describes him as a “drag kid / lgbtq+ advocate.”

    When I was a kid, Converse were well-made shoes that were a lot less expensive than Adidas or Nike. I don't think that's the case anymore. My brother always wore Converse High Tops for basketball, and I believe in the 80s, my favorite republican athlete of all times wore them and did their ads (Bill Laimbeer, who is hated everywhere but Michigan).

    I'm an old lady, I wear Rebocks. My nieces tell me Rebocks and Sketchers are old lady shoes. But they are comfortable.

    Why do 'bisexuals' need their own shoe?

    They did that one decades ago.

    Trans shoes?

    The story seems too weird and too "perfect" to be true, but Converse does have a "Pride Collection".

    Hoka and Mizuno are really good for comfort, Noonie. Brooks has some models with really good cushioning. Altra is good too. But not inexpensive, unless you find the older version on clearance when a new model has just been introduced.

    Same reason everyone else does. A company is trying to create a need/desire for a product and exploiting it.

    Oh my!

    How about a 6-pack for L-G-B-T customers?

    That way on any given day they could switch from one type to another? >evil-grin<

    The drag queen kid they are using for it, Desmond, is no stranger to being exploited.
