The Fall season has definitely started… Climate is much cooler, wind is blowing, there’s leaves on the groud, rain, mud, even a bit of snow here and there. Not the greatest conditions if you’re looking for a comfortable day outside. Well, Thanks to Vans MTE, you don’t have to worry about any of that anymore.
The transition between Summer, Fall and Winter in Quebec is a period that can be described as unstable. A stretch of the year during which you can see the temperature go from cold and windy to warm and rainy in less than 24 hours. The MTE collection from Vans is a line of shoes and outerwear designed to withstand the elements so you never have to worry about our province’s extremely variable temperature between Summer and Winter.
This year, Vans celebrates our ever changing weather with the all new MTE Sk8-Hi 2.0 DX for Men and Women. The shoes sure are looking fresh and have that classic Vans Style we all know and love, but the new Vans MTE Sk8-Hi 2.0 DX also has a technical side that will make your outdoor Fall activities much easier and fun. Here's a couple usual Fall weather situations in which the MTE will definitely help you out.
COLD AND WINDY DAYS
Cold and windy weather shouldn’t be a reason to stay at home on the weekend. We know that the changes of temperature that we go through in Fall are often very drastic, but when you’re well equipped with the right gear, it’s really not a problem.
Vans designed the MTE Sk8-Hi 2.0 DX with a new UltraCush drop-in molded sockliner shoe line with warm internal liners to keep your feet comfortably wrapped during the colder autumn days. In addition, a heat retention layer stands between the outsole and insole of the shoes to keep the heat around your feet at all times. The outerwear collection is also created to resist the cold with wind resistant materials and a construction that also focuses on keeping the heat inside. Hard to believe, but the cold November wind will almost become your friend with Vans MTE!
It’s Saturday morning, you’ve been working all week and you planned a day of hiking to relax. There’s just one problem: It’s pouring rain outside… No worries! The Vans MTE collection was created to never let the elements get in the way of your autumn projects.
Built with next level waterproof leather and suede, the Vans MTE 2.0 shoes will allow you to never have wet feet during November’s rainy days. The clothes are just as waterproof as the shoes and are treated with DWR 5K water repellent, which repels the water in a very effective way so you never get wet. Slippery surfaces? No worries, the newly-constructed vulcanized lug outsole takes advantage of 20 Years of snow boot history for maximum traction and ultimate slippage prevention. Achilles cushion, rubber toe cap, tongue and heel pulls also included! Rain or shine, there’s never a bad time to go play outside with Vans MTE.
The collection is also designed to resist snow in Fall. When there’s not enough to go snowboarding or wear your big winter boots, but just enough to need shoes and clothes that a little more “tough” than your usual summer gear... that's when our new MTE Sk8-Hi 2.0 DX comes into play.
You planned to go out to the local bar tonight, but are discouraged by the fact that you will probably have to spend the evening in winter boots? Don’t worry about that, the Vans MTE Sk8-Hi 2.0 DX shoes are snow, water and cold resistant, but they’re also quite casual, stylish and comfortable to wear from the snowy streets to the cozy bar. In addition, with its MTE 360° heat and moisture management system, you won't get sweaty feet once inside so you can leave in the middle of the night with both of your feet feeling nice and dry.
Talking about Fall without mentioning those weird warm sunny days is like talking about poutine without mentioning the brown sauce.
Those days don’t happen too often after October, but when they do, we blame ourselves for having already switched our wardrobes with winter clothes only. With its MTE 360° moisture management system, you’ll never feel like it’s too hot in your new Sk8-Hi 2.0 DX, but you’ll always be ready for that moment when it gets cold again. Same goes for the apparel side of things. Vans MTE offers gear designed to make a smooth transition between all types of climates. MTE outerwear is designed to allow great breathing and airflow in warm weather and keep the heat inside in colder weathers.
