You are Made for the Elements™. These are your Vans.
The Sk8-Hi GORE-TEX® MTE-3 is all-terrain ready and offers maximum protection from the elements. Built with Vans’ most technically advanced and purpose-built all-weather technology—including GORE-TEX® breathable waterproofing to keep you dry, a heat retaining 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation package to keep you warm, and an MTE-3 outsole with the All-Trac rubber compound to keep you on your feet—this uncompromising Sk8-Hi upgrade delivers our most progressive cold weather promises so that nothing stands between you and your next adventure. It is made with leather, textile, and synthetic uppers.
• MOISTURE MANAGEMENT - Engineered with a breathable waterproof internal bootie that allows moisture to escape while keeping snow and rain out, the GORE-TEX® “GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™” promise is trusted in any condition.
• THERMOREGULATION - This 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation package is thin, lightweight, and warm. An extremely fine microfiber weave helps to trap air and block heat loss, making for incredibly efficient heat retention while allowing internal moisture to escape.
• TRACTION - The MTE-3 outsole with All-Trac rubber compound has a dynamic lug tread pattern that provides flexible, true all-weather grip that significantly aides in overall traction on variable terrain. Toe picking treads and a higher toe bumper offer added traction and protection.
• COMFORT AND SUPPORT - Our MTE-3 triple-density comfort package includes a dual-density UltraCush™ molded EVA footbed with an OrthoLite® topsheet for enhanced comfort and reduced weight—all while supporting a drier, healthier environment inside your shoe.
