Vans has blessed the sneaker community with unforgettable styles like the imitably slim Authentic shoe and effortless Slip-On. As the brand seeks more cool collaborations and deliver premium products, more Vans footwear heat follows.

The latest Vans MTE (Made For the Elements) drop merely advances the skate label's fiery streak.

Vans recently unleashed its MTE Crosspath Mid shoes, a new chunky hiking-style shoe marrying steez and practicality for a mid-top model ready for just about any outdoor vibe.

Vans' MTE Crosspath sneaker naturally offers a comfy-focused, versatile setup. The water-repellent upper features recycled mesh and a creamy matte texture, joined together by no-sew techniques for superior defence against the outdoor elements.

Elsewhere, the Vans MTE Crosspath shoe looks to offer plenty of cushy comfort, from the semi-padded collar to the slightly plush tongue. The shoe is even finished off with a super beefy and presumably griptastic sole infused with eco-friendly foam.

At the same time, the outsole's increased traction prepares you for whatever terrain you step on, resulting in a genuinely outdoor-ready Vans shoe.

In sealing the deal on this fusion of functionality and style, the Vans MTE Crosspath receives several ideal color options, from classic black and cream selects to bold bumblebee yellow and dusty pink terra cotta.

For those in the market for cool hikers with more than a little bit of skatewear flair, Vans has you covered.

The Vans MTE Crosspath boot is currently available on Vans' website for what is honestly a relatively reasonable $130.

Vans MTE is home to some solid outdoor gems, including those nice padded snow boots, the low-profile UltraRange, and the gorp-fied Sk8 His.

It's time to add Vans' trek-friendly Crosspath shoes to the list, too.
