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 the elements with our most advanced and purpose-built all-weather technology, the new Arctic Camo Sk8-Hi GORE-TEX MTE-3 packs over 25 years of Vans snowboard boot history and technology into a timeless, trusted style. The MTE-3 feature set includes the MTE-3 outsole built with All-Trac™, an MTE exclusive all-weather rubber compound that offers significantly improved traction with improved toe picking and dynamic lug tread. The MTE-3 GORE-TEX waterproof package will keep you dry, a powerful 3M Thinsulate™ insulation package for cold weather thermoregulation will keep you warm, and a dual-density molded UltraCush™ sockliner with an OrthoLite® topsheet will keep you comfortable no matter what the day has in store. Plus, the durable water repellent-treated camouflage textile and synthetic uppers bring an iconic Vans aesthetic to this uncompromising cold weather comfort.
• TRACTION - The brand new MTE-3 All-Trac™ outsole rubber compound with a dynamic lug tread pattern provides flexible, true all-weather grip that significantly aides in overall traction on all kinds of surfaces. Toe picking treads and a higher toe bumper offer even more grip and protection.
• THERMOREGULATION - The MTE-3 3M Thinsulate™ is warm, lightweight, powerful, and thin. The extremely fine microfibers in Thinsulate™ help to trap air and block heat loss, making for an incredibly efficient insulation while still allowing internal moisture to escape.
• MOISTURE MANAGEMENT - Engineered with a classic internal bootie that allows internal moisture to escape while keeping snow and rain out, the GORE-TEX “GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™” promise is trusted in any condition.
• COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE - Our MTE-3 triple-density comfort package includes a dual-density UltraCush™ molded EVA footbed with an OrthoLite® topsheet for enhanced comfort and reduced weight-all while supporting a drier, healthier environment inside your shoe.
