It’s time to get re-imaginative! Beatrice Domond injects her personal style into the Vans AVE Pro – the most technically-advanced skate shoe to date. It’s taking style and comfort to a whole other level!
Having grown up as the only skater girl in her small town in Florida, Beatrice got into the art by watching old-school ‘90s VHS tapes. Her unique style combined with progressive influences in skateboarding has made her recognised by both the skate and fashion community. And she brings this sensibility to her latest Vans collaboration and a hot new take on the AVE Pro.
“Getting to do a colorway on the AVE Pro is pretty unreal,” Beatrice said. “I mean, it’s the most flattering compliment one can receive. Anthony is a man of few words and high standards. He doesn’t really settle, and it shows throughout his skating and in everything else he does. So, for him to want to do something with both our names on it is a lot of respect.”
The AVE Pro was designed by Vans athlete and legend Anthony Van Engelen. Its features include DURACAP and Rapidweld no-sew technology for increased longevity, LuxLiner for the ideal fit, and UltimateWaffle construction for outstanding board control.
Beatrice brings her style across through the custom floral print on the sockliner and an ornate paisley design on the shoe’s quarters, inspired by her a childhood bedroom set.
“I would dream on it of one day getting to be a part of something of this calibre,” she said. “Not to get too sentimental… A lot of time and thought went into this. I really, really wanted it to be something special.”
Her hand-drawn signature features in the translucent outsole, while the shoe’s marshmallow and jade colourway are just super cool.
