Professional Skater Lizzie Armanto Launches New Vans Skate Footwear & Apparel Collection
Focusing on strong women and good fortune.
Vans' latest collection has been launched together with professional skater Lizzie Armanto. With the flourishing season, it's only natural that Lizzie's new collection shines in a beautiful lavender. The collection includes the Vans Slip-On Pro, the Sk8-Hi Pro and matching styles that complement the collection. Lizzie's exciting aesthetics and love of skateboarding inspire the collection enormously and put a focus on strong women who want to move well-feeling and courageously.
During her travels through Asia, Lizzie fell in love with the traditional Japanese "Maneki-neko" cat symbolizing happiness. She knew that this should flow into the collection. Both the Vans Slip-On Pro and the Vans Sk8-Hi Pro feature details like 'good fortune' in the sole and Lizzie's embroidered personal initials on the heel counter. The Sk8-Hi Pro reflects its aesthetics with the flower shaped upper eyelet, which was made specifically for Lizzie.
The Apparel collection is both stylish and functional. The Lizzie Body Suit is made of a breathable cotton spandex material, which is covered throughout with the familiar checkerboard pattern. The Lizzie Raglan Hoodie is the perfect sweater to warm up before a skate session. The eye-catching and essential for the look lavender color and Lizzie's signature in combination with the relaxed yet stylish fit make this an absolute eye-catcher. Last but not least, the Lizzie Skate Pack includes all the essential travel essentials in a backpack that's perfect for traveling. The two compartments are suitable for the storage of technical equipment, skate equipment, and other trifles.
The Vans x Lizzie Armanto Collection is now available online and in selected stores.
