Vans MTE is the by-product of an outdoor lifestyle, because we know that when you pursue your passions, good weather doesn’t always come with you. Rain, sleet, snow, mud, wind – nothing will come between you and your next adventure. In fact, we like to think that all of these elements add a little flavor to the experience. This is precisely why we created the MTE model in the first place. Designed to deliver adventures and advanced levels of versatility on a daily basis, the new Sk8-Hi MTE-2 shoes bring together more than 25 years of Vans snowboard boot history and technology in a timeless and trusted design. The MTE-2 feature series includes the new MTE-2 outsole made with All-Trac ™, a unique all-weather rubber compound that offers significantly improved traction and flexibility. The HydroGuard ™ 360º waterproof membrane is designed to keep you dry; a zonal PrimaLoft® insulator to thermally regulate the cold will keep you warm, and the molded UltraCush ™ footbed with OrthoLite® upper footbed is designed to keep you comfortable. In addition, the durable leather and textile upper with a water-repellent finish add to the iconic Vans aesthetic unsurpassed comfort in cold weather. Thanks to them, you can be sure that each of its stitches has been strategically arranged to offer you maximum versatility, regardless of whether you are at the top of a snowy summit or facing a day of intense rain. At the end of the day, we know that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the stories you create throughout your journey. • TRACTION: The new All-Trac ™ mte-2 rubber compound in the All-Trac ™ outsole provides a flexible and true grip in any weather that significantly aids in all-round traction on all types of surfaces. • THERMOREGULATION – Primaloft® mte-2 zonal insulation pack uses a high-quality microfiber thermal insulation system to mimic the warmth-giving properties of down, keeping you warm without retaining water. • MOISTURE CONTROL: The new MTE-2 HydroGuard ™ 360o package maintains a high waterline for maximum waterproof protection, resulting in a reliable, comfortable and breathable fit. • COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE – Our mTe-2 dual-density comfort package uses a single-density UltraCush ™ molded EVA sockliner with an OrthoLite® upper sockliner for added comfort and lower weight, while supporting a drier, healthier environment inside your shoe.
