On the heels of winter and temperatures dropping, Vans is expanding its MTE range with upgraded versions of the Sk8-Hi MTE 2.0 DX and UltraRange EXO Hi MTE models. The brand’s MTE technology integrates heat retention and moisture-wicking features, including insulated lining with an additional layer between the mid and outer soles, to its iconic sneaker silhouettes.
The Sk8-Hi MTE 2.0 DX refreshes the timeless yet retro style with improved MTE 360™ technology, which includes a polar fleece lining for a plush feel and sweat-wicking benefits. For ample warmth, the brand introduced a 100gm PrimaLoft® insulation on the interior to retain heat through the entire upper. These newly-debuted sneakers are crafted from water-resistant suede and leather materials with an MTE 2.0 boot lug sole for secure strides in any climate. They also feature an UltraCush® drop-in molded sock liner, Achilles heel cushion, rubber toe cap, as well as tongue and heel pull tabs.
Available now, the Sk8-Hi MTE 2.0 DX sneakers come in seven color-blocked colorways, including apricot/black and blue block/marshmallow. They retail for $110 and are available for purchase on vans.com.
