UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2, The Most Adventure-Ready Shoe

Modified for comfort and versatility in the most uncomfortable conditions


Vans releases our most adventure-ready shoe to date, the UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2, as part of the all-new MTE-2 collection.  Modified to get you there, and designed for the surfer who - when the waves are good - will trek through rain, mud and snow to reach them, the UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2 is engineered to take whatever nature can throw at it.

From the mountains to the seas, the outdoors has always been a part of Vans' canvas.  Vans MTE was made to keep you outside and exploring no matter the weather of the terrain, which is the case for Vans Surf team riders LeeAnn Curren, Pat Schmidt and Yuzuru Shinjo.

The GORE-TEX Invisible Fit™ waterproof membrane keeps water out while letting internal moisture evaporate, so your feet stay dry. The Zonal Primaloft® insulation has millions of tiny air pockets that trap and preserve body heat to keep your feet nice and warm. An aggressive outsole tread pattern with Vans’ new All-Trac™ Cold Weather Compound grips anything from wet city streets to unpredictable trails, and the UltraCush™ dual-density midsole provides the cushioning and support needed to get you out there. Way out there.


The UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX MTE-2 launches in two versatile colorways.  Dachsund is a rich warm brown with a black sole and detailing and tonal GORE-TEX typography on the quarter.  Bright red laces and gold tone hardware finish off the look, creating a modern take on a classic hiking boot.  The marshmallow colorway offers the same performance, but with a classic sneaker look.  The white upper, white sole, and white hardware look is rounded with a black Sidestripe, black lining, and black tongue and heel loops.


Available in nutria, a neutral warm green, with black colorblocking on the hood, sleeves and shoulders, and red hood strings, the Woods MTE-2 jacket is waterproof with fully taped seams, making a statement while protecting you from the elements.  Rounding out with collection are the Versa Standard Q-Zip, a sleek high-neck pullover with a kangaroo pocket and drawstrings at the waist in pomegranate, the Range Relaxed Pant in black, and the MTE Cuff Beanie in nutria heather.

The Vans UltraRange EXO Hi GORE-TEX-2 and MTE-2 apparel collection is available now online and at Vans retail locations:
