Everyone knows that Vans makes some of the best sneakers on the market. Everyone also knows that The North Face makes some of the most ubiquitous technical clothing on the market. The combination of these two huge brands pushes the boundaries of both but results in a seven piece collection filled with individual pieces that are greater than the sum of their parts. Multiple versions of the Vans Sk8-Hi MTE LX and Desert Chukka MTE LX are present in the collection, along with a brand spanking new take on the Nuptse Jacket. Each of the pieces in the collection combines everything from DRI-LEX fabrics and complex textile structures to HydroSeal Waterproof membranes and embossed heel strikes.
