Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to unveil the latest addition to our MTE offering, the Destruct Mid MTE-1. A purpose-built, weather-enabled style, the Destruct Mid MTE-1 makes it easier to venture out and enjoy the journey—no matter what the conditions.
Classics Vans styling meets durable protection with Vans latest iteration of MTE. Just like your van is modified to handle all types of terrain and weather, the same approach applies to the Destruct Mid MTE-1. Since the beginning, surfers have continuously sought ways to better address the demands of their environment through their gear. Vans surfers Tanner Gudauskas, Holly Wawn and Adrien Toyon can certainly attest to this, having put the Destruct Mid MTE-1 through the paces to get to great surf in not-so-great weather.
The silhouette stands up to the elements with an MTE-1 water-resistant system, keeping water out while letting internal moisture evaporate naturally. Thermoregulation is provided from PrimaLoft® Cold Weather Package insulation with extremely fine microfibers that trap and block heat loss when temps start to drop. Finally, an MTE-1 lugged and siped tire-like tread pattern provides next-level traction for a variety of terrain.
The Destruct Mid MTE-1 is offered in hero colorway dress blues/black and black/black options. With its timeless design and performance capabilities to match, this style is an ideal staple for year-round surfers and adventurers.
Supporting the silhouette is the women’s Taylor Hooded jacket in argan oil featuring a Sherpa-lined crossover-style hood, DWR coating, 3 oz filling, and an exterior drawcord waist and storm flap with hidden snaps and front zip. For men, the Drill Chore Coat Long MTE-1 is offered in black featuring sustainable DuPont Sorona fill, fully functional zip-off hood and moisture wicking lining.
