Joke is on her, 'cause these are shoes ... or wait ... maybe they aren't?
Instead of suffering with powder-packed skate kicks lace up the Van's Men's Mt. Edition Winter Shoe and slay the skate park throughout the winter. Bomber high-top cuffs use sturdy leather and canvas to keep you from rolling an ankle, and a hook-and-loop closure locks down your laces. Mom will be proud that you actually put on a pair of 'boots' to go snow-skating in.

I love Vans, even though they are not made in the US anymore, but what is these days.
I want to love these shoes. I used them last season for bi-deck snowskating here in the Tahoe Basin.
At first they were great, a pair a smart wools and the shoes, that was it. After, a full day of riding they became water-logged. You don't really notice the weight, but you do feel the wetness and chill. Within 3 weeks, the wrapping started to peel back and was collecting bits of snow and ice.
I stuck it out for the rest of the season, but switched to my gore-tex running shoes for slushy spring conditions, which completely waterproof, but shitty because I prefer the flat sole skater shoe feel.
As for the grip, it proved to hold up well. The reverse waffle is great on the neoprene type grip tape I use on my snowskate.
I'm giving them 3 stars because I can give Vans any less. But I would not recommend these to anyone.
the best shoes i have ever try you should buy them you will not be sad to spend the money on them
theese are the best shoes I have ever used for snowskating I used to just waterproof a old pair of vans but this wasn't the best the felt right but would still get wet I just used theese all day and my socks not even damp thats after trudging through2 feet of snow kickass shoes plus they look sweet not like a typical big clunky snowskate shoe dammm vans did a good job on this one cheers from the ,V.T
are these water proof
are these water proof
I wouldn't say proof, but yes, the Vans Mt. Edition is certainly water resistant. The tongue has gussets to keep the moisture and snow away from your foot.
