The Chuck Taylor All Star II Gum is given a subtle new look with the addition of both a gum rubber sidewall and toe cap.

Vans unveils All Weather MET Footwear and apparel collection, built to endure Mother's Nature's harshest weather conditions from the mountains to the streets. The collection offers an upgraded series of classic Vans footwear and apparel silhouettes that employ weather-resistant technology and construction while staying to Vans' timeless aesthetic.
Designed for the elements, the All Weather MTE collections presents outerwear pieces that mirror Vans's MTE footwear collection. Coated with durable water repellant (DWR), these progressive jackets will keep you warm and dry during the cold and wet winter seasons - perfect for Canadian winter! Don't be fool by some of the mild days we had here in Toronto, winter is not over yet. So, definitely go check out Vans All Weather MTE collection, now in stores.
The jacket I'm wearing is the Kilroy MTE. Very on trend - paying homage to the bomber! I loved that it's hooded - option for extra warmth. And with the bright orange quilted lining?! So cool looking! This is perfect for those crisp, frigid days.
As for the All Weather MET footwear, Vans enhanced models of iconic silhouettes including the Sk8-Hi MTE, Sk8-Hi 46 MTE, and the Old Skool MTE. The collection features premium Scotchgard-treated leather and suede uppers, warm linings and a heat retention layer between the sockliner and outsole to help keep feet warm and dry. A Vans constructed lug outsole takes advantage of over 20 years of snow boot history, infusing timeless style and modern technology into footwear that embraces the cold seasons.
