Summer is really over... The temperature gets colder as the days get shorter, but with the all new Vans MTE All Weather collection, our rough climate is absolutely not a reason to stay inside.
The Vans MTE All Seasons collection for men includes a series of shoes and apparel that will always keep you warm and dry so you don't have to worry about Quebec's typical wet and cold temperatures.
Good thing we have a large selection of Vans MTE products, now available online or at one of our 11 retail stores.
With their construction specifically created to withstand harsh weather, you won't have to worry about walking in puddles or in the snow. Composed of classic Vans shoes and clothing, the MTE products have been enhanced with special technologies to provide comfort, warmth and waterproofing, and let's not forget about style.
Including the Sk8-Hi MTE and the Sk8-Hi 46 MTE, the collection features premium Scotchgard®-treated leather and suede uppers, warm linings, and a heat retention layer between the sockliner and outsole to help keep feet warm and dry.
A Vans constructed lug outsole takes advantage of over 20 years of snow boot history, infusing timeless style and modern technology into footwear that embraces the cold seasons.
The fall ‘16 All Weather MTE collection presents outerwear pieces that mirror Vans’ MTE footwear innovation. Coated with durable water repellant (DWR), these progressive jackets, just like the MTE shoes, will keep you warm and dry during harsh and cold seasons.
The men’s apparel assortment offers a wide selection of jackets including the 66th Parallel MTE, the Kilroy MTE and the Junipero MTE. The 66th Parallel MTE jacket – a quilt puffer with a lightweight PrimaLoft® down blend – provides increased warmth, breathability and water resistance.
Paying homage to the bomber trend, the Kilroy MTE is a hooded bomber with a quilted lining, perfect for crisp, frigid days. The Junipero MTE is traditional fisherman’s jacket, adapted for the elements with a breathable back ventilation slit to emphasize the definition of classic style with reliable function.
An adventurous advertising campaign
To test the new All Seasons MTE collection, Vans Partnered up with the tech gods at Apple and armed 7 international photographers with MTE products and an iPhone 6S Plus. Then, they sent them around the world so they can capture images of their journey and document their experience with all new All Seasons MTE products. What was supposed to be an ad campaign finally turned into a real art project.
The result is a striking collage of scenic adventures highlighting the All Weather MTE collection through the lens of renowned lifestyle and action sports photographers including Chad Chomlack, Chad Huff, Charles Lanceplaine, James North, Jay Meador, Jeff Han, Matt Georges, Nolan Hall and Pete Williams.
