Airwalk announced a new partnership with Denver-based professional race car driver
Savannah Ivanitski. At only 19 years old, Ivanitski
has quickly made a name for herself in the racing field. Two years ago,
she became the youngest driver ever to complete in the Pikes Peak
International Hill Climb (one of America’s oldest motorsport races),
earning her Rookie of the Year honors. Under the new partnership,
Ivanitski will endorse Airwalk footwear products.

a brand that’s always seeking out young, up-and-coming talent, it’s
exciting to see what Savannah’s career holds,” said Bruce Pettet,
President and CEO of Collective Licensing International (CLI), which
owns and manages the Airwalk brand. “She’s breaking boundaries in her
sport, which is a value that aligns perfectly with the Airwalk brand.”
in Southern California in 1986, Airwalk was one of the original brands
on the board sports scene. From the start and still today, the brand
supports athletes at the forefront of their respective sports, yet also
prides itself on
recognizing and championing emerging talent. Ivanitski’s impressive
racing roster and passionate personality makes the partnership a natural
fit for both sides.
“I’m looking forward to
bringing something new to the Airwalk brand,” Ivanitski said. “This
partnership is something different for both of us, but I love the brand
and am excited to introduce Airwalk to the world of racing.”
into a family with a racing background, Ivanitski started kart racing
at just 11 years old. She began karting with the Sports Car Club of
America’s (SCCA) Formula Junior Program and participated in SCCA Solo
Nationals in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, at age 16, Ivanitski became the
youngest driver to finish the renowned Pikes Peak International Hill
Climb. She was awarded the Rookie of the Year award and finished third
in the Time Attack 2WD class. Last year, Savannah earned her national
competition license.
On August 12, Ivanitski will participate in her third Pikes Peak
International Hill Climb race.
