With June's Pride Month quickly approaching, many brands have been busy creating exclusive releases that both celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community -- with one especially noteworthy launch coming from Dr. Martens, with the unveiling of its new rainbow combat boots.

The bold rainbow colorway is featured on the iconic 1460 silhouette, which boasts a chunky build that makes the alternating hues of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet stand out even more. The rainbow combat boots are finished off with black soles, which instead of the brand's usual yellow stitching, are complemented with thick rainbow thread. On the heels of each boot, "PRIDE" is spelled out in white lettering, along with a heart.

A portion of all proceeds from the collection are donated to The Trevor Project, an American non-profit that's dedicated to providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBTQ+ persons.
