For those of you who struggle to let go of your favourite pair of Vans through the harsh winter conditions, Vans have got you covered as they give a weather ready update to some of their most loved styles in the “Mountain Edition” range.
Consisting of certified Vans classics including the SK8-Hi, Era and Old Skool, the Vans MTE collection looks to winterise each silhouette from the sole to the tongue, weatherproofing each key aspect of the design by using knowledge built from Van’s 20 year heritage in snow boot design. Starting from the ground up, the shoes iconic waffle sole has been inverted for extended rubber traction and maximum grip when travelling across wet or icy terrain. Ensuring warmth, each shoe has been lined with fleece material and further heat retention layer between the outsole and sock liner to avoid damp and keep your feet toasty. Finally, we move on to the exterior part of the shoe, and the upper’s design has been reworked to ensure no unwanted weather gets through. Premium Scotchgard™ treated material on the upper combines with the gusseted tongue to repel liquid and moisture.
While the MTE silhouettes give a lot more in terms of functionality than the minimal skate ready styles the brand is known for, Vans don’t compromise the ever popular shape of the shoe’s and each MTE silhouette, fusing functionality and style, remains as wearable as the original design.
