In celebration of 2021’s Pride, Reebok has recently released its All Types of Love footwear and apparel that coincides with official Pride celebrations around the world and their accompanying campaign film, ‘Fierceness Isn’t Born. It’s Made’. Designed by Reebok’s LGBTQIA+ employee community, Colorful Soles, this year’s unisex sized footwear and apparel collection pays homage to the legendary ballroom safe haven.

Together they curate ballroom culture and how it led to different types of music, fashion, art, and political advocacy. The era is reaching a newer, younger audience and this collaboration beautifully merges both retro and current trends. Willi Ninja founded House of Ninja in the 1980s to be a safe haven for members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Reebok continues its ongoing support for the LGBTQIA+ community both internally and externally, recognizing that it must start with the youth.
