Vans Sk8-Hi MTE-2 - Speckled Gum/Black
You are Made for the Elements™. These are your Vans.
Vans MTE is the byproduct of a lifetime spent outdoors, because we know that the pursuit of your passions isn’t always accompanied by a fair-weather forecast. Rain, sleet, snow, mud, wind—nothing is going to stand between you and your next adventure. In fact, we like to think these all add a bit of flavor to the experience. It’s why we created MTE in the first place. Made for adventure and advanced levels of day-to-day versatility, the all-new Sk8-Hi MTE-2 packs over 25 years of Vans snowboard boot history and technology into a timeless, trusted style. The MTE-2 feature set includes the new MTE-2 outsole built with All-Trac™, an exclusive all-weather rubber compound that offers significantly improved traction and flexibility for all types of weather. The HydroGuard™ 360o waterproof membrane is in place to keep you dry, a PrimaLoft® zonal insulation package for cold weather thermoregulation will keep you warm, and the molded UltraCush™ sockliner with an OrthoLite® topsheet has been designed to keep you comfortable. Plus, the durable water repellent-treated leather and textile uppers bring an iconic Vans aesthetic to this uncompromising cold weather comfort. Whether you find yourself bagging snowcapped peaks or braving a rain-soaked commute, you can set off with confidence knowing every stitch of your equipment is intentionally placed to provide ultimate versatility. After all, we know it was never about the destination. It’s about the stories you create along your journey.
