Vans has been at the top of the skateboarding footwear world for years. Recently however they’ve expanded into other genres of footwear in some creative ways. Two of the most popular of their newest designs are the Switchback and Mountain Edition are ready for pre-order in some wintery new colorways.

Just in time for the cold weather, the boot-like Vans Switchback comes in a black and orange combination. The boot inspired laces and reinforced lace panel and lace holes ensure these are durable enough to take on whatever rugged terrain you can put them in. Don’t let the ruggedness fool you though, rich and soft suede material makes these equal impressive in the casual department as well.

The second style you see here is the Mountain Edition. The Mountain Edition features a similar black and orange colorway designed with style and durability in mind. Rather than suede, the Mountain Edition is wrapped in a premium pig-skin leather. Other details include waxed laces and a forefoot Velcro strap for the ultimate fitment.
