The latest collection from Vans’ global skate team rider Lizzie Armanto has finally sprung. With the super bloom season exploding with eye-catching and colorful flowers, it’s only natural for Lizzie’s new collection to blossom in a beautiful lavender pack featuring the Vans Slip-On Pro, Sk8-Hi Pro and matching apparel to complement. Lizzie’s vibrant aesthetic and love for skateboarding has inspired a collection made for women to feel comfortable and boldly push forward.
While traveling in Asia, Lizzie became enamored with the traditional Japanese “Maneki-neko” cat that symbolizes good luck and knew it had to be incorporated in this collection. Both the Vans Slip-On Pro and Vans Sk8-Hi Pro have good fortune detailed in the sole and Lizzie’s own personal initials embroidered onto the heel counter. The Sk8-Hi Pro continues to bring her aesthetic to life with the top eyelet shaped as a flower, custom made for Lizzie.
Part of the Vans global family since 2014, Lizzie Armanto has paved her own path, boasting several contest wins and acclaimed video parts along the way. Staying true to the Vans DNA, Armanto has emerged as an icon of originality and an inspiration to aspiring skaters across the globe. When she’s not traveling or at her local skatepark, Lizzie continues to make her mark in skateboarding history by becoming the first woman to complete the infamous Tony Hawk loop in late 2018. Vans’ collaboration with Lizzie aligns with the brand’s commitment to enable and empower women skateboarders around the world.
