We’re thrilled to be partnering with a revered, boundary-pushing brand like Kenneth Cole to increase representation in our games and empower players to show their pride, spirit and fashion in ‘High Heels!;’ it’s a perfect fit.”

This collaboration marks the first time that Cole’s fashion will be featured in a mobile game.

We are including our PRIDE product in ‘High Heels!,’ allowing millions of people to experience celebrating Pride, and as a reminder that ‘being different is what we have in common.’”
