A true embodiment of Vans’ DNA, Lizzie Armanto is an icon of originality and positivity. With her down-to-earth, fashion-forward, barrier-breaking approach, it’s no wonder Lizzie has become a role model to skateboarders around the world.
Never one to remain complacent in her style both on and off the board, Lizzie‘s fun approach is reflected in her latest collection with Vans, featuring the Old Skool Pro Lizzie Armanto and a signature apparel pack infused with Lizzie‘s signature beating-heart graphic and positive messaging. The design takes cues from natural tones and wild terrain, according to Lizzie:
“The colours of my latest collection were inspired from a photo I took of a spring time California landscape, covered in plants and wildflowers.”according to Lizzie
The Old Skool Pro Lizzie packs bold style and serious performance into a shoe for those who aspire to Lizzie‘s arresting abilities on a skateboard. The shoe’s full-suede, antique-white upper with debossed Checkerboard combines with a translucent Sidestripe and a contrasting black rubber sole, creating a graceful aesthetic with a bit of attitude. Lizzie‘s initials are debossed on the heelcup as well as printed alongside her signature beating-heart graphic on an olive-gold sockliner.
The shoe features PopCush, Vans‘ brand-new, Pro-Skate-exclusive technology. A meticulously tuned foam recipe offers impact protection, superior cushioning, and better energy return for every type of skating. As the brand’s most progressive sockliner to date, PopCush is Vans‘ standard best-in-class upgrade for skating longer and harder.
Original gum rubber compound offers superior grip and support, while Pro Vulc Lite construction provides ultimate boardfeel, flex, and grip. DURACAP reinforced underlays in high-wear areas add unrivaled durability and prolong the life of the shoe.
Accompanying the Lizzie’s Old Skool Pro is a line of signature apparel, including the Heart Lizzie baby tee in blue surf, legging in black and hat in black. Lizzie‘s signature beating-heart graphic can be found across the collection with prominent placement on the baby tee, while a reminder to “skate with heart” is emblazoned on the legging’s interior waistband.
The Vans Old Skool Pro Lizzie Armanto Pack is now available at Vans retail stores.
