Olympic Skateboarder and Vans Team Rider Lizzie Armanto puts her spin on the Sailor Moon x Vans “Pretty Guardian” Collection. Adding a trio of silhouettes to the series, Lizzie offers manga-dressed versions of the Vans Old Skool, Vans Slip-On, and her very own signature shoe, The Lizzie.
Leading the pack is The Lizzie, which Lizzie Armanto debuted just earlier this year. This is the first time ever that the silhouette has been used for a collaborative collection. The sneaker looks as though it was ripped straight out of a manga book as the upper has a soft grey base paired with a graphic Sailor Moon print on the quarters. This design is similar to that of the Vans Old Skool with the exception of the black base, white laces, and kanji-stamped midsoles. The Vans Slip-On also has a black upper, but this time the manga makes an appearance as stitched patches on the toe box and quarters.
The footwear collection by Lizzie will also be released alongside apparel and accessories such as a bucket hat and t-shirt. Both the apparel and footwear styles were designed to evoke an old-school anime feel that is both joyful and gritty.
The Sailor Moon x Vans “Pretty Guardian” Collection by Lizzie Armanto drops on June 10, 2022. To purchase, visit Vans.com and select Vans retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
