The Men's Sk8-Hi MTE Shoe revamps the legendary Vans high top with weatherized additions designed for the elements. Premium Scotchgard®-treated upper, warm lining, and a heat retention layer between sockliner and outsole keep feet warm and dry while the newly-constructed vulcanized lug outsole takes advantage of 20 years of snow boot history for maximum traction. The Sk8-Hi MTE also features re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, signature waffle rubber outsole, and padded collar and heel counters for support and flexibility.
Vulcanized Rubber goes through a curing process involving high heat and the addition of curatives. This makes the rubber material harder, smoother, more durable and more resistant to chemical effects.
Suede is a type of leather with a napped finish. However, it can also refer to a similar napped or brushed finish on many kinds of fabrics. Suede leather is made from the under side of the hide. Because suede does not include the tough exterior skin layer, suede is less durable but softer than standard ("full-grain") leather. Its softness, thinness, and pliability make it suitable for clothing and footwear use.
Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers. Felt can be of any color, and made into any shape or size.
Leather is made from the hides of animals. It acts as a natural insulator and is generally waterproof.

Waffle Vans' Original Outsole
Back in 66, Paul van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer and, unlike other shoe manufacturers, he used pure crepe rubber with no filler. That decision ended up shaping the company when the world s first skateboarders discovered how Vans now-famous ORIGINAL WAFFLE outsole gum rubber compound let them feel their boards while keeping them firmly connected to them.
