You are Made for the Elements. These are your Vans.
Worlds. Have. Collided. The Half Cab, one of Vans’ most recognizable heritage skateboarding shoes, snaps on MTE’s pinnacle technical package to create the beast-est mid-cut of all time. Thirty years in the making, the Half Cab GORE-TEX MTE-3 combines iconic skate style and swagger with MTE-3’s GORE-TEX breathable, waterproof package, Vans’ exclusive use of GORE-TEX’s all-new Duratherm insulation, and an MTE-3 outsole featuring All-Trac all-weather rubber compound. It’s a lot. And it’s meant to be. Question is: What are you gonna do with it? The the Half Cab GORE-TEX MTE-3 is made with leather, textile, and synthetic uppers.
MOISTURE MANAGEMENT - Engineered with a breathable waterproof internal bootie that allows moisture to escape while keeping snow and rain out, the GORE-TEX® “GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™” promise is trusted in any condition. THERMOREGULATION - This 3M Thinsulate™ insulation package is thin, lightweight, and warm. An extremely fine microfiber weave helps to trap air and block heat loss, making for incredibly efficient heat retention while allowing internal moisture to escape. TRACTION - The MTE™-3 outsole with All-Trac rubber compound has a dynamic lug tread pattern that provides flexible, true all-weather grip that significantly aides in overall traction on variable terrain. Toe picking treads and a higher toe bumper offer added traction and protection. COMFORT AND SUPPORT - Our MTE™-3 triple-density comfort package includes a dual-density UltraCush™ molded EVA footbed with an OrthoLite® topsheet for enhanced comfort and reduced weight—all while supporting a drier, healthier environment inside your shoe.
Inspired by the basketball courts of New York City and built for skating, Tyshawn's pro shoe features a cupsole construction with a full-length EVA midsole and a layer of ADITUFF™ for extra durability. To top it off, a molded sockliner and plush collar will keep your feet protected and looking fresh. White leather always helps too.
The NB Numeric 440H is a high top skate shoe with lineage tracing back to New Balance’s heritage of classic, 70’s style running shoes. With its C-CAP heel wedge helping to absorb impact and keep it lightweight, the 440 has the board feel of a vulcanized shoe with the impact protection of a cupsole. The upper is constructed with dual layers of suede in the high-wear zones along with breathable mesh side panels and reflective heel perforations, making the 440 not only comfortable, but extremely functional.
