You are Made For The Elements™. These are your Vans.
Since the birth of riding waves, surfers have been in the business of modifying their equipment to better address the demands of their environment. The right board for the wave. Different waxes based on water temperature. Thick neoprene suits to insulate from the cold. Four-wheel drive vehicles customized for camping and holding boards. The list goes on.
The UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2 is the continuation of this purpose-built, adventure-based mindset. Not only is this shoe modified to stand up to the journey, but it will keep you comfortable in the most uncomfortable of situations—after all, great surf doesn’t always mean great weather. Armed with the UltraRange EXO outsole featuring All-Trac™ all-weather rubber, a GORE-TEX Invisible Fit waterproof membrane, the zonal PrimaLoft® Insulation package, and an UltraCush™ EVA midsole, this shoe is ready to stand in the rain, romp through the mud, and wade through the snow. . . so that nothing stands between you and your next great session. It is made with water repellent suede, textile, and synthetic uppers.
• TRACTION - The UltraRange EXO outsole features our new All-Trac™ cold weather rubber compound, a flexible, true all-weather grip that significantly aides in overall traction on all kinds of surfaces.
• THERMOREGULATION - The zonal Primaloft® Insulation package over the toe, tongue, and collar traps heat to keep you warm without retaining water.
• MOISTURE MANAGEMENT - The GORE-TEX invisible fit waterproof membrane, durable water repellent-treated upper, and gusseted tongue maintain breathability while keeping snow and rain out.
• COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE - The single-density EVA molded sockliner and UltraCush EVA midsole offer enhanced comfort and reduced weight.
