Barbie has announced 12-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown as a Barbie Role Model by unveiling a one-of-a-kind doll created in her likeness, to highlight how she has broken boundaries for the next generation of girls.

Sky Brown is a professional skateboarder and surfer. Sky will be competing for Team GB next year in the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics, making her Great Britain’s youngest Summer Olympian ever, and the youngest Olympic athlete since 1936. Sky began skating and surfing at the age of two and quickly became a phenomenon when short videos of her gained millions of views on YouTube.

As the original girl empowerment brand, Barbie is dedicated to shining a spotlight on powerful, diverse role models to inspire the limitless potential in every girl, and this year honours women breaking barriers in sports. The doll is dressed in Nike activewear and holds a skateboard, ready for adventures on and off the ramp.

The doll was gifted to Sky as she recovers from injuries from her worst fall yet, breaking her left wrist and hand and suffering skull fractures earlier this year at a skate park in California.

Sky’s already looking forward to recovering and picking up her skateboard. She commented: “I’m going to push boundaries for girls with my skating and surfing. I’m going for gold in 2021 and nothing will stop me. Having a Barbie created in my likeness is one of the most incredible things that’s ever happened to me. I hope other girls my age can see what is possible when you follow your dreams.”

Earlier this year, Sky released a book titled ‘Sky’s the Limit’ – a compilation of stories and inspirational quotes illustrating Sky’s journey so far. Sky hopes to continue making history while inspiring fans of all ages across the world.

This year, Barbie is spotlighting female role models in sports, in an effort to close the Dream Gap; the time when girls start to doubt that they can be anything. Research shows that when girls play sports, they report higher levels of confidence, which in turn breaks down barriers to girl’s self-belief.

The Barbie Dream Gap Project is an ongoing global initiative that aims to give girls the resources and support needed to continue to believe that they can be anything. Barbie is working to close the Dream Gap by: highlighting role models, encouraging purposeful play, and donating funds.

As the summer season comes to a close, we want to head into the Fall season with a bang. The Love in Venice collection delivers an entire range of newness including six never-before-seen prints, three brand new silhouettes and a compilation of our best-selling styles in both apparel and swimwear. Inspired by the buzzing beach town that is Venice, California. Known for its bohemian spirit, funky shops, free spirited residents, and colorful streets -- our collection Love in Venice was born.

Our inspiration behind this collection comes largely from the beach and our love for the ocean -- introducing prints like our “Mowie Wowie” hot pink Hawaiian flower print (which you may have seen on Sofia Richie) and our “Sherbet” tie-dye which resembles that perfect sunset over the water on a hot day. As always, the silhouettes were designed to mix and match as you please to achieve the desired coverage and fit you are looking for. The swimwear in each print can be paired back with the apparel for an effortless beach to street look, or to simply add a little layering to your look no matter where you are.

The collection re-introduces some of our top selling swimwear like the Tavi, Tasha and Francesca sets as well as the Cash One Piece who’s silhouette sold out within 24 hours in a previous collection. Our sweatpants, cropped hoodies and sweat shorts also make an appearance in new printed fabrics, alongside our best-selling terrycloth Rose Romper and Coco Set (which you may have seen Hailey Bieber wearing recently).

Along with these top styles, we introduce three brand new terry cloth apparel silhouettes - our Canal cropped tee, Windward mini skirt, and Kinney one-shoulder dress. These pieces are so versatile and perfect for lounging around your home, throwing on to run errands, or even a cute and comfortable date night outfit.

Meet Lou Porter. A California Native, who loves the beach, surfing and sharing her stories and experiences everyone she encounters. Lou has been coming to Topanga Beach, just north of Los Angeles for years. She takes photos and videos of people surfing and posts them to Instagram and Facebook. Although not a surfer herself she has become a staple in many people's daily routines greeting them as they go in and out to surf.

Lou is committed, she follows the surf charts and on days when there is surf, makes her way from Chatsworth to the beach, a 20 mile commute over the Santa Monica mountains but when the surf is up Lou is there.

A couple of us surfers want to support Lou to get her an upgrade. We are looking to get people from the community to pool together to get her a new camera with a zoom and tripod, to support her. Most of all we want to share our appreciation and enthusiasm for her dedication to the beaches we surf at most.

There have always been amazingly talented women skateboarders but there’s no denying that Vans Pro and Tony Hawk protégé, Santa Monica's Lizzie Armanto, is one of the most groundbreaking ladies in skateboard history. Pouring sweat, skill, and creativity into full parts for both Thrasher Magazine and Birdhouse in 2017, she also became the first female to be featured on the cover of Transworld Skateboarding in addition to Thrasher cover honors. Armanto is also one of the leaders of a new onslaught of fierce women skaters making names for themselves in the Vans Park Series circuit.

If that’s not enough, she’s also the first female skater to successfully complete Tony Hawk’s 360 Loop, in addition to being featured as a primary character in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 video game. With over 30 awards on her mantle, along with the first-ever Gold in X-Games Womens Park competition in 2013, Lizzie’s path is paved in milestones and setting the tone for generations of women in skateboarding.

A true embodiment of Vans’ DNA, Lizzie Armanto is an icon of originality and positivity. With her down-to-earth, fashion-forward, barrier-breaking approach, it’s no wonder Lizzie has become a role model to skateboarders around the world.

Never one to remain complacent in her style both on and off the board, Lizzie’s fun approach is reflected in her latest collection with Vans, featuring the Old Skool Pro Lizzie Armanto and a signature apparel pack infused with Lizzie’s signature beating-heart graphic and positive messaging. The design takes cues from natural tones and wild terrain, according to Lizzie:

“My latest collection was inspired from a photo I took of a spring time California landscape, covered in plants and wildflowers.”

The Old Skool Pro Lizzie packs bold style and serious performance into a shoe for those who aspire to Lizzie’s arresting abilities on a skateboard. The shoe’s full-suede, antique-white upper with debossed Checkerboard combines with a translucent Sidestripe and a contrasting black rubber sole, creating a graceful aesthetic with a bit of attitude. Lizzie’s initials are debossed on the heelcup as well as printed alongside her signature beating-heart graphic on an olive-gold sockliner.

The shoe features PopCush, Vans’ brand-new, Pro-Skate-exclusive technology. A meticulously tuned foam recipe offers impact protection, superior cushioning, and better energy return for every type of skating. As the brand’s most progressive sockliner to date, PopCush is Vans’ standard best-in-class upgrade for skating longer and harder.

Original gum rubber compound offers superior grip and support, while Pro Vulc Lite construction provides ultimate boardfeel, flex, and grip. DURACAP reinforced underlays in high-wear areas add unrivaled durability and prolong the life of the shoe.

Accompanying the Lizzie’s Old Skool Pro is a line of signature apparel, including the Heart Lizzie baby tee in blue surf, legging in black, coaches jacket in antique white, backpack in antique white, sock in white, and hat in black. Lizzie’s signature beating-heart graphic can be found across the collection, from prominent placement on the baby tee to a more subtle nod on the inside front lining of the coaches jacket. A reminder to “skate with heart” is emblazoned on the legging’s interior waist band and backpack’s strap.

The Vans Old Skool Pro Lizzie Armanto Pack is now available at Vans retailers and
