“Getting to do a colorway on the Ave Pro is pretty unreal. I mean, it's the most flattering compliment one can receive,” Beatrice said. “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.”
Designed by Vans athlete and skate legend Anthony Van Engelen, the AVE Pro performs at the highest standard—AVE wouldn’t have put his name on it otherwise— and looks damn good doing it. Features include DURACAP and Rapidweld no-sew technology for preserved longevity, LuxLiner for optimum fit, and UltimateWaffle construction for superior board control. Beatrice incorporates her style through custom floral print on the sockliner and an ornate paisley design on the shoe’s quarters, inspired by her favorite childhood bedroom set: “I would dream on it of one day getting to be a part of something of this caliber,” she explains. “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 shows through the translucent outsole, and much like Beatrice, the shoe’s marshmallow and jade colorway is cool yet understated.
