You are Built for the ElementsTM. This is your Van.

Vans MTE is the result of a lifetime spent outdoors, because we understand that pursuing your passions isn't always accompanied by a sunny forecast. Nothing will stand in your way of your next adventure, rain, sleet, snow, mud, or wind. In fact, we like to think that each of these adds a unique flavour to the experience. That is why we founded MTE in the first place. The new Sk8-Hi GORE-TEX MTE-3 in Bryan Iguchi's signature colorway, made for the elements with our most advanced and purpose-built all-weather technology, packs over 25 years of Vans snowboard boot history and technology into a timeless, trusted style. The MTE-3 feature set includes an outsole constructed with All-TracTM, an MTE exclusive all-weather rubber compound that provides significantly improved traction with improved toe picking and dynamic lug tread. A powerful 3M ThinsulateTM insulation package for cold weather thermoregulation will keep you warm, and a dual-density moulded UltraCushTM sockliner with an OrthoLite® topsheet will keep you comfortable no matter what the day has in store. Furthermore, the water repellent-treated leather and textile uppers lend an iconic Vans aesthetic to this unrivalled cold-weather comfort. Whether you're tackling snowcapped peaks or braving a rain-soaked commute, you can set off with confidence knowing that every stitch of your gear was purposefully placed to provide maximum versatility. After all, we all know it was never about the journey. It's about the stories you tell along the way.


• TRACTION - The all-new MTE-3 All-TracTM outsole rubber compound with a dynamic lug tread pattern provides flexible, true all-weather traction on a variety of surfaces. Toe-picking treads and a higher toe bumper provide even more traction and protection.

• THERMOREGULATION - The 3M ThinsulateTM MTE-3 is warm, lightweight, powerful, and thin. ThinsulateTM's extremely fine microfibers trap air and block heat loss, resulting in an incredibly efficient insulation that still allows internal moisture to escape.

• MOISTURE MANAGEMENT - Designed with a classic internal bootie that allows internal moisture to escape while keeping snow and rain out, the GORE-TEX "GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRYTM" promise can be relied on in any weather.

• COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE - Our MTE-3 triple-density comfort package includes a dual-density UltraCushTM moulded EVA footbed with an OrthoLite® topsheet for enhanced comfort and weight reduction—all while promoting a drier, healthier environment inside your shoe.
