Having surfaced back in Fall with a small 6-piece assortment, the Vans Mountain Edition range continues to grow in it’s latest collection for Holiday 2014.
The MTE (Mountain Edition) range arrives with a carefully constructed selection of footwear pieces, with each shoes considered design made to battle the elements from the sole to the tongue. The Holiday collection adds new styles from the Vans California and Vans Surf categories, as well as Winterised reworks and colour treatments of Vans Classics silhouettes in the Era MTE and Sk8-Hi MTE, as well as introducing the Old Skool MTE.
The re-engineered Vans Classic’s arrive in a pig suede, leather and wool get up, decorated in earthy tones including browns, greens, greys and black. Meanwhile the Vans California Collection gets an outdoor ‘hiking boot’ inspired rework, with the Mid Skool MTE CA utilising supple leather and nubuck, with hiking laces and metal eyelets for a robust finish. The Old Skool MTE CA gives another sophisticated rework to a classic low-top silhouette showcasing leather mudguards, waxed canvas panelling and of course the iconic side stripe.
Taking the laid back coastal vibes and mixing them with Vans rich design heritage, the Vans Surf range completes the collection with weather-treated forms of the Aldrich MTE, Fairhaven MTE and Mid Slip MTE. Constructed from a water-repellent suede, the shoes are also lined with fleece for warmth and comfort.
Amongst all of Vans collections and ventures, the Mountain Edition range is a significant edition to the brands vast portfolio. Their ability to apply the amount of tech and innovative materials involved, further solidifies the brands place at the top of the action sport footwear game. From new sole units for maximum grip to liquid repellent scotch guard applied to advance designs, the shoes make for the complete winter shoe while maintaining their iconic aesthetics.
The Vans Mountain Edition range is available now at www.vans.eu and select retailers.
