Beaches and Boulevards are No Match for the Vans Destruct Mid MTE-1Release: 2 December 2021
The most dedicated surfers are willing to traverse any surface in search of the perfect wave. Now, their feet will be better protected against any condition en route to catching swells by wearing the Vans Destruct Mid MTE-1. And for everybody else, this versatile model is a certain choice for venturing into unknown territory.
One of the latest additions to Vans’ encompassing Made For The Elements collection, the MTE-1 category means this model is well suited for all but the most extreme conditions. Designed with transit in mind, the namesake MTE-1 system is visibly expressed in the lugged rubber sole. The perimeter is siped for traction from heel to toe, while hexagonal spikes offer multidirectional grip and are an inverted version of Vans’ heritage waffle tread.
Joining the meaty MTE-1 soles are extended rubber toe bumpers for built-in waterproofing, which are then met by treated suede uppers that are cut at the ankles for that little bit of extra protection. The MTE concept is also found beneath the surface. PrimaLoft Cold Weather Package insulation traps just enough warmth for those nippy morning starts without any risk of overheating.
Kick up some carnage in the Destruct Mid MTE-1, which is available right now from Vans retailers.
