In celebration of Our Heritage Month, Converse has introduced “Mi Gente, Mi Alegría,” a collection of sneakers and apparel designed by Latine creators in recognition of the spirit of Latine American heritage.

“This year’s Mi Gente capsule collection, created by and for the community…is a collective expression of culture, a tribute to Latinx roots, and above all, a celebration channeled from a place of joy – de pura alegría– to honor the vibrancy that makes the many communities of Latin American culture so full of life,” Converse said in a statement.

The Mi Gente, Mi Alegría collection features new versions of class Converse sneakers that “take inspiration from music, art, food, traditions, fabric, and family.” The collection is a partnership between Converse and Pangea Sound, an L.A. based global dance music collective.

“From the ground up! Thank u NYC!” Pangea Sound posted on Instagram. “If you’re in New York go check out our wall at the [Converse] flagship in Soho.”

Currently available at, there are a handful of sneakers and shirts customers can purchase. This includes a pair of Chuck 70 Mi Gente, Mi Alegria high-tops that come in the colors onyx and natural ivory; a pair of Chuck Taylor All Star Mi Gente, Mi Alegria high-tops that were designed with textured woven canvas, and a print that includes an image of a molcajete; and the Run Star Legacy CX Mi Gente, Mi Alegria high-tops that come in the colors “laser lemon” and “light aqua” and features a marble midsole and ombre outsole, so the shoe can have an “elevated look.”

Supernova, a musician with Pangea Sound, added: “The goal with Pangea Sound is to create a borderless community where people from all different backgrounds and different representations can come enjoy themselves, be themselves, and be on the same wavelength as everybody.”
