The popularity of weatherized sneakers has hit an apex, coercing many of the industry’s most prominent manufacturers to capitalize on the innovation of their current lineup. After releasing a string of outdoor-imbued variants throughout the year, Vans has made headlines once again with its newest ruggedized silhouette for FW19, the Static CC MTE sneaker.
The Static CC MTE is an elaborative take on the company’s already-capable “Mountain Edition,” which took silhouettes like the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool MTE to new heights through the implementation of Scotchgard-coated fabrics, and enhanced heat retention for the winter months. Now, for Vans’ most recent project, the high-top sneaker will come dressed with an all-new weather-treated suede upper, a comfortable high-top collar, and specialized tongue detailing, as well as the company’s proprietary ComfyCush footbed for unparalleled support throughout the day. To keep your feet protected from the frost, MTE 360 tech has been liberally implemented, working alongside rugged D-ring metal eyelets, a reverse-lug outsole, and ultra-grip sole to give you confidence on and off the trail.
