Anybody even remotely familiar with trends in the sneaker world knows that Vans is an iconic staple brand if there ever was one. And while they’re pretty heavily ingrained in the Southern California skate scene, the brand has actually expanded well beyond sunny, sandy boardwalks and skateparks. In fact, their UltraRange EXO Hi MTE is a bonafide all-weather sneaker boot.

This isn’t the brand’s first foray into the world of adventure-ready footwear, but it might be their best to date. That’s because these sneakers — which still bear the stylistic hallmarks of the timeless Vans Sk8-Hi — feature All-Weather MTE 360 technology, perfect for heat retention and moisture management. Furthermore, they boast a treated exterior for all-weather expeditions, grippy and stable newly-engineered co-molded outsoles with reverse lug Waffle tread, and more. Plus, they manage all that while remaining incredibly lightweight and comfortable for all-day wear. Snag a pair today for just $110.

Purchase: $110
