Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, have released their most adventure-ready shoe to date, the UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2, as part of the all-new MTE-2 collection. Modified to get you there, and designed for the surfer who – when the waves are good – will trek through rain, mud and snow to reach them, the UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2 is engineered to take whatever nature can throw at it.
From the mountains to the seas, the outdoors has always been a part of Vans’ canvas. Vans MTE was made to keep you outside and exploring no matter the weather or the terrain, which is the case for Vans Surf team riders LeeAnn Curren, Pat Schmidt and Yuzuru Shinjo. Built on three key principles of moisture management, thermoregulation, and added traction to handle the elements, Vans’ enhanced MTE-2 collection will take you places you never expected.
The UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2 launches in two versatile colorways. Dachsund is a rich warm brown with a black sole and detailing and tonal GORE-TEX typography on the quarter. Bright red laces and gold tone hardware finish off the look, creating a modern take on a classic hiking boot. The marshmallow colorway offers the same performance, but with a classic sneaker look. The white upper, white sole, and white hardware look is rounded out with a black Sidestripe, black lining, and black tongue and heel loops.
Available in nutria, a neutral warm green, with black colorblocking on the hood, sleeves and shoulders, and red hood strings, the Woods MTE-2 jacket is waterproof with fully taped seams, making a statement while protecting you from the elements. Rounding out the collection are the Versa Standard Q-Zip, a sleek high-neck pullover with a kangaroo pocket and drawstrings at the waist in pomegranate, the Range Relaxed Pant in black, and the MTE Cuff Beanie in nutria heather.
