CLASSICS SK8-HI MTE 2 

AVAILABLE THIS SEPTEMBER ONLINE AND AT VANS RETAIL LOCATIONS

Vans is excited to introduce the latest addition to the MTE collection. Made for the elements, but comfortable enough for everyday wear, Vans’ all new Sk8-Hi MTE-2 packs a quarter century of snowboard boot experience and technology into an iconic Vans silhouette.

The Sk8-Hi MTE-2 was built for those who want an all-weather shoe for days with unpredictable weather but don’t want to sacrifice style.  Features include a new outsole built with All-Trac™, an MTE exclusive all-weather rubber compound that offers significantly improved traction, HydroGuard™ 360° water resistant membrane in place to keep feet dry, PrimaLoft® zonal insulation package for cold weather thermoregulation to keep warm and a single-density, and a molded sockliner for added comfort. Plus, the durable water resistant-treated leather uppers and graphic details bring an iconic Vans aesthetic to this uncompromising cold weather comfort.

New for Fall 2021, the Sk8-Hi MTE-2 comes in two retro-inspired colorways, both elevated by rich weatherproofed suede uppers.

The Khaki and black colorways is a versatile neutral, featuring khaki-colored uppers with marshmallow accents and striking black color blocking on the quarter and tongue. True to the Sk8-Hi style it was adapted from, it features Vans’ iconic Sidestripe in marshmallow, coordinating with the toe cap and collar. Gold and black hiking boot inspired laces give a nod to the rugged all-weather durability of the shoe. The shade carries over to the gold flag and tongue tags while a khaki foxing stripe completes the look.

The pomegranate and leopard colorway is a bold fashion-forward option, featuring deep merlot and brick red uppers with a khaki collar, electric blue Sidestripe and pull tabs, as well as leopard color blocking on the quarters and tongue. White and black hiking-inspired laces, a marshmallow sole and a black foxing stripe pull it all together.

The Sk8-Hi MTE-2 will be available beginning September 2021 online and at Vans retail locations.
