Gear up this season with a pair of Vans Sk8-Hi MTE's. The tier 2 model offers a boat-load of beefed up features like an All-Trac™ outsole with an exclusive all-weather rubber compound for significantly improved traction, along with a HydroGuard™ 360º waterproof membrane and PrimaLoft® zonal insulation to create the ultimate cold weather package.

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection 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.
HydroGuard - HydroGuard’s waterproof membrane operates and performs similarly to other waterproofing technologies. Billions of microscopic pores cover the membrane, which provides dependable waterproof properties. These pores are too small for water droplets to pass through, but the perfect size to allow water vapor molecules from internal moisture escape. Vans’ new HydroGuard 360º keeps a high waterline for maximum waterproof protection, while the new HydroGuard Wrap provides a lower splash and puddle guard around the shoe and over the toe. In either case, the result is reliable and comfortable, breathable waterproofing no matter where your journey takes you.

PrimaLoft - PrimaLoft has been in the advanced materials technology solution game since 1983. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, their high-quality microfiber thermal insulation systems mimic the warmth-providing properties of down, and have become synonymous with cold weather comfort. PrimaLoft fabric has millions of air pockets that actually trap and preserve body heat, and also contain fibers that are treated so that they don’t retain water.
