Issa Rae’s love for sneakers has reached its pinnacle: she now has her own Converse collection! The Insecure creator, producer, and actress teamed up with Converse and designer Nicky Fulcher to create a line of kicks that’ll hype you up as you strut through your day. No, really — each high-top shoe is covered in a selection of Issa’s favorite personal affirmations, such as “stand in your truth,” “run with it,” and “take up more space,” so the sneakers are like your own on-the-go pep talk. “It was all about empowering the next generation to get up and do what it is they aspire to do,” Issa said in a press release. Now that is a message we can most definitely get behind.
The Issa Rae By You collection sneakers are available in beige, purple, black, white, or navy blue, and you can customize them on the Converse website to choose which inspiring words, phrases, and images you prefer. Take an up-close look at the fresh designs ahead to decide which color you’ve got your eye on, and join us in counting down the days until Insecure‘s fifth and final season premieres.
