Vans MTE is the byproduct of a lifetime spent outdoors, because we know that the pursuit of your passions isn’t always accompanied by a fair-weather forecast. Rain, sleet, snow, mud, wind—nothing is going to stand between you and your next adventure. In fact, we like to think these all add a bit of flavor to the experience. It’s why we created MTE in the first place.
Activity-inspired, purpose-built, and designed to protect you from the elements, the UltraRange Exo MTE-1 blends the comfort and get-you-there features of the UltraRange family with the protection from the elements that only the MTE franchise can provide. This new design combines the UltraRange’s signature comfort UltraCush™ foam cushioning mid-sole with traction from MTE’s reverse lug outsole, built using Vans’ classic all-condition rubber. It also features enhanced thermoregulation properties, the new HydroGuard Wrap, a breathable Old Skool-inspired upper, and a revamped rubber toe and forefoot shape to provide an optimal fit without sacrificing Vans design DNA. The UltraRange EXO MTE-1 is made with leather, textile, and synthetic uppers.
Whether you find yourself bagging snowcapped peaks or braving a rain-soaked commute, you can set off with confidence knowing every stitch of your equipment is intentionally placed to provide ultimate versatility. After all, we know it was never about the destination. It’s about the stories you create along your journey.
- TRACTION - The aggressive UltraRange EXO lug pattern is ready for variable terrain and street performance. Toe picking treads and a higher toe bumper provide grip and protection.
- THERMOREGULATION - The zonal Primaloft® Insulation package uses a high-quality microfiber thermal insulation system to mimic the warmth-providing properties of down, keeping you warm without retaining water.
- MOISTURE MANAGEMENT - The new HydroGuard Wrap provides a splash and puddle guard around the shoe and over the toe, resulting in a reliable, comfortable, breathable water resistant system.
- COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE - A single-density OrthoLite® sockliner and UltraCush™ EVA midsole with a TPU heel cradle allows air to circulate, helping move moisture away to provide a drier, healthier environment inside your shoe.
