David Beckham, Rita Ora and Naomi Campbell have designed Adidas Pride trainers for LGBT homeless
Sometimes we’re so awash with Pride-themed goods that it’s a little bit overwhelming.
As this past month has seen, we’ve even ended up with some Pride clothing produced in countries where it’s illegal to be gay.
But even us Pride scrooges can’t resist a good cause, which has seen some of our favourite celebs collaborate with Adidas to produce trainers for their Prouder campaign, reported metro.co.uk.
David Beckham, Rita Ora and Naomi Campbell are some of the big names who have put their best foot forward, and have designed their own take on the Adidas samba trainer.
The shoes, which feature a series of bold and striking designs, are to be auctioned off for the Albert Kennedy Trust.
In a bid to raise as much money as possible, the designs will be exhibited on July 4 – 10, and will be auctioned off on eBay for any keeno wishing to purchase one of the trainers.
For those not in the know, the charity serves lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people who are homeless, living in a hostile environment or are experiencing the repercussions of London’s housing crisis.
“What makes me proud in 2018 is the world that we live in – the diversity, the quality, the creativity… I have a young family and I want them to grow up in a world where they are given a chance, where they are part of that diversity and equality – things that are changing over the years,” David Beckham told Adidas.
Rita Ora, who recently came out as bisexual, said that she put her art to the trainer because thinks people should “have the freedom to be in love with whoever you damn well please.”
“My ingredients for a perfect world is diversity, being inclusive, having the freedom to be in love with whoever you damn well please,” Rita Ora told Adidas.

Campbell said that there’s an “energy and fearlessness” that comes into play when we celebrate Pride.
“What makes me prouder in 2018 is the strength and boldness I see in the people around me. I love the energy and fearlessness. That is what makes me proud.”
Although Brits have become more inclined to celebrate Pride Month over the past couple of years, the month of June is more in line with a US calendar.
London Pride takes place on July 7, while Brighton Pride begins on August 3.
