Blake Paul got together with Vans and The North Face to create this custom colorway of the Sk8-Hi MTE DX that offers the utility of a hiking boot with the clean aesthetic of a street shoe. Your feet will be warm and comfy with the shoe's UltraCush™ insole, fleece lining and the heat-retention layer between the insole and outsole. Taking inspiration from 20 years of snowboot design, the Lugged WaffleFlex outsole is grippy on any terrain, making these ideal for outdoor adventures in the mud, snow, and ice.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
MTE Collection - Vans' Mountain Edition series features durable materials, reinforced construction and weather-resistant features to ensure you don't just look good, but feel good even out in harsher elements.
Lugged WaffleFlex Tread - Modernized tread design is turned on an angle to create lateral flex grooves across the foot, which promotes anatomical movement. The tread blocks have also been spaced apart with recessed centers to reduce weight and increase flexibility. These particular treads are lugged for durability and grip when you need it.
UltraCush™ - Light, predictable cushioning and foothold, the UltraCush™ sockliner has odor-eliminating properties for superior comfort.
