Exclusive for the 2015 holiday season, Vans is bringing fans an updated assortment of its Mountain Edition collection products, made to tackle the toughest weather while staying true to its laid-back skate roots. Vans is offering its new holiday footwear in classic styles with Men’s outerwear pieces to compliment the footwear.
The upgraded shoe forms were constructed with Scotchgard-treated uppers, warm linings and a heat retention layer between the sockliner and outsole. In the forthcoming season, the Mountain Edition collection introduces the Sk8-Hi Del Pato MTE, while bolstering the throwback Sk8-Hi MTE with new color-ups and weatherized protection.
Inspired by the duck boot, Sk8-Hi Del Pato MTE features all of the weather-defying advantages of Vans Mountain Edition technology, including a vulcanized lug outsole for maximum traction and a water-resistant build (think rain, sleet, slush and snow). This hybrid silhouette debuts in two colorways – black/black and ginger/navy – outfitted in pig suede materials and reinforced with a tech tuff-coated mudguard.
Following its fall line-up, the Sk8-Hi MTE makes a returns with an ensemble of high-tops inspired by outdoor footwear. Within the men’s footwear selection, two herringbone suede executions are available in brown and charcoal, while the women’s denim suede pack consists of three additional Sk8-Hi MTE varieties offered in black, blue and coriander.
Moving beyond footwear, Vans made Men’s apparel to match its footwear, instead of the other way around.
Moving beyond footwear, Vans created Men’s apparel to match its footwear, instead of the other way around. The series of treated Mountain Edition outerwear pieces were coated with durable water repellant (DWR) for, you guessed it, warm and dry outdoor fun all winter. Progressive jackets, shirt jackets and fleece silhouettes round out the offerings, with many pieces insulated with lightweight PrimaLoft fibers.
The Vans Mountain Edition collection launches globally in November 2015, offering the Winnipeg Mountain Edition Jacket (MTE) Black Iris/ Golden Brown, $139.50 MSRP, Jonesport Mountain Edition Jacket (MTE) Black Iris/ Russet Brown Plaid, $99.50 MSRP, Sk8-Hi Del Pato MTE In (MTE) Black/ Black, $90 MSRP, Sk8-Hi MTE In (MTE) Brown/ Herringbone, $80 MSRP, and Sk8-Hi MTE In (MTE) Denim Suede/ Coriander, $80 MSRP.
