Not many people can say they have Vans in their DNA, but skateboarder Lizzie Armanto is an exception to the rule. She knows how important it is to be down to earth, fashionably stylish, and to break barriers, subsequently inspiring a generation of skaters around the globe. And now, she has brought this same attitude to the Vans Old Skool Pro Lizzie Armanto shoe.
Taking inspiration from Lizzie’s iconic beating-heart graphic and her message of positivity, this powerhouse design manages to blend natural tones and wild terrains. Speaking about the design, Lizzie said:
“The colours of my latest collection were inspired from a photo I took of a springtime California landscape, covered in plants and wildflowers.”
Packing bold style and high-quality performance, the Old Skool Pro Lizzie is synonymous with Lizzie’s real-life escapades on her skateboard. The full-suede, antique-white upper and debossed Checkerboard blends fluidly with a translucent Sidestripe and black rubber sole, showcasing the same type of audacious attitude you’d expect from Lizzie. In addition, her initials are indented on the heelcup and printed next to the beating-heart icon on an olive-gold sockliner.
In terms of performance, the shoe features PopCush, which offers impact protection, extra cushioning, and incredible energy return for long and hard skating. At the same time, the original gum rubber compound provides outstanding grip and support, while Pro Vulc Lite adds the necessary boardfeel, flex, and grip. And for durability and lifespan, you can’t go wrong with the DURACAP-reinforced underlays in high-wear areas.
