SOREL believes that Pride is more than just a month.

It’s a lifestyle, a daily celebration of living authentically and loving unapologetically. It's something worn on the regular. We've partnered with PAPER to spotlight three members of the LGBTQIA+ community as they use style to express their everyday Pride—in the wear-all-year Pride Sneaker we’ve created in their honor.
Jonathan Paul is an artist and
entrepreneur living in Los Angeles.
“RuPaul always said: ‘you’re born
naked, and the rest is drag.’ I guess you could say this is my drag. Life is so
serious sometimes, but fashion doesn’t have to be.”
SOREL has made a donation on behalf of Jonathan to Helping F.A.I.T.H., an organization dedicated to facilitating community access into transformative housing.
Ella Snyder is a transgender model and
visual artist living in Los Angeles.
“Personal style makes me feel safer
and more comfortable in my identity. Picking out an outfit in the morning,
it’s like creating a field of armor for
the rest of the world.”
SOREL has made a donation on behalf of Ella to Camp Aranu’tiq, the first-ever summer camp established for transgender and non-binary/gender-nonconforming youth.
Kittens is a D.J., producer, and intersectional
feminist living in Los Angeles.
“There were so many different types of people in the queer nightlife scene that were so expressive with their fashion. Everyone was so interesting, diverse, and authentic. And I felt so inspired to figure out who I was and what that looked like."
SOREL has made a donation on behalf of Kittens to the It Gets Better Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to uplifting, empowering and connecting members of the LGBTQIA+ community around the globe.
