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.

Because there’s not a more effective way to catch a bad cold in the Fall than to have gear that’s not adapted to the weather, thinking about what you need to wear to go out of the house is very important. Going from one type of weather to another without having to always switch gear to be comfortable is why the Vans MTE collection exists. Featuring a bunch of technical features making it an incredibly versatile line of clothing and footwear year after year, the Vans MTE collection was made specifically to withstand the elements. There’s a reason why the Vans MTE products are all qualified as “All Weather”. They really are made for every kind of weather!


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 shoes will allow you to never have wet feet during October’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. So keep in mind that rain or not, there’s never a bad time to go play outside with Vans MTE.

Just like rainy days, cold and wind 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 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!

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.

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 shoes are snow, water and cold resistant, but they’re also quite casual, stylish and comfortable to wear from the snowy streets to the warm and cozy bar. In addition, with its MTE 360 ° heat and moisture management system, you will not sweat your life once inside so you can leave in the middle of the night with both of your feet nice and dry.

Talking about Fall without mentioning those weird sunny and warm 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 a MTE 360 ° moisture management system, you’ll never feel like it’s too hot in your shoes, but you’ll always be ready for that moment when it gets cold again. As for the clothing, it’s the same thing! 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.

Vans MTE is really the best of all worlds!
