As proud champions of the LGBTQI+ community, Hunter has launched a unique version of the best-selling PLAY boot in time for the start of festival season and Pride month. The PLAY boot is lightweight, versatile and 100% waterproof. This unique Pride edition, available worldwide from June 3, updates the black short rain boot with a rainbow sole.
Celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQI+ community, every pair of the parade-ready Pride PLAY boots will have a unique sole due to the crafting of the natural rubber rainbow. Along with the sole, the rainbow is integrated into the pull tab and Hunter logo running down the back of the boot. To launch the boot and recognize Pride month, Hunter will be celebrating five individuals within the LGBTQI+ community and supporting five charities chosen by each of the ambassadors.
