Vans California Collection has just released two new MTE (Mountain Edition) styles for the change in seasons ahead. Designed for the elements, the all-leather Mid Skool MTE CA is mid-top silhouette constructed using premium aged full grain leather with contrasting heel and binding accents. Available in Arrowood and Bitter Chocolate colorways, these Mid Skools come with complimenting hiking inspired laces. The Old Skool MTE CA features a split upper in a combination of premium full grain pebbled leather and heavy waxed canvas panels. The Black/Ivy Green and Cathay Spice/Black color combinations come with contrasting waxed laces.
Designed specifically for winter climates, Van’s new MTE collection takes advantage of 20 years of snow boot design history. Premium Scotchgard™-treated uppers, warm fleece linings with a heat retention layer between the sock liner and outsole, and a newly constructed lug outsole keep your feet warm and dry. These are Vans that truly work for East Coast Fall and Winter weather; wind, rain or snow. We’ve just received MTE’s spin on Vans’ classic silhouettes, the Sk8-Hi and Era.
Traditional military textiles and colors inspire the Surplus pack which has just arrived this week from Vans’ Classics Collection. The three styles, the Surplus Half Cab, Old Skool and Authentic, all feature combinations of thick cotton canvas and suede in army and navy inspired colorways - Butternut/ Olive Night and Dress Blues/ Blue Graphite.
Vans’ lace-up, low-top Old Skool style is a favorite among skaters of every generation. Now available in premium pebbled leather with a padded tongue and leather lining, the Premium Leather Old Skool comes in True White and Wine Tasting colors. Pick up a pair in store only at The Vans DQM General in New York.
