No Situation is Too Extreme for the Vans UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-3
Vans have long ventured beyond the surf and sand of their SoCal HQ in search of more challenging conditions to pit their products against. Instead of just conquering specific environmental scenarios, the brand seeks to create one design to rule them all. Enter the UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-3, the most versatile and technologically-laden expression of their Made For The Elements range.
Bearing an impressively long product name means this model is also equipped with a formidable slew of features. The UltraRange EXO has been a staple of Vans’ contemporary offerings while still channeling classic design cues. Its teched-out design lends itself to straightforward compatibility with useful textile augmentations, such as GORE-TEX’s waterproof-breathable membrane situated beneath the upper. Behind that is 3M Thinsulate lining for additional warmth in particularly cold conditions, but it won’t cause overheating as the temperature climbs.
More visible upgrades that help earn its MTE-3 badge is the fact the silhouette and outsole is closer to that of a hiking boot than the low-cut waffle-soled plimsolls the brand is best known for. That being said, the welded Jazz stripe, hexagonal speed hook detail and brown gum outsole options are unmistakable Vans cues.
