What do you wear out for dinner in a snowy ski resort? This is an essential piece of gear to get right! In Niseko Japan a few years ago, I got it VERY wrong. I was sliding all over the place: on the side walk, on the road, down stairs. Going for aprés was more dangerous then riding the mountain! Needless to say, I had zero grip on my sneakers and I was paying for it. I saw so many people eat shit and get hurt on that trip.
I frigging LOVE these new snow sneakers from Vans. Vans have always made a great mountain aprés shoe but Hana Beaman has taken it a notch higher with her signature model. So good to see the Vans Sk8-Hi 46 MTE now made for women. Waterproof, insulated, warm and grippy. Just what you need in the resort at night.
$89.95 USD – Check em out!
The Sk8-Hi 46 MTE in Hana Beamans signature colorway revamps the legendary Vans high top with Hanas snow designs and additions designed for the elements. Premium Scotchgard-treated leather uppers, warm Sherpa linings, and a heat retention layer between sockliner and outsole keep feet warm and dry while the newly-constructed vulcanized lug outsole takes advantage of 20 years of snow boot history for maximum traction. The Sk8-Hi 46 MTE also features re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear and padded collars for support and flexibility.
It’s sick. We want one. Available in 3 colourways: Brown/ Angora, Black and Port Royale (a sort of red wine colour). LOVE the Brown / Angora colourway (featured in the pics).
Check out Hana Beaman in the latest women’s snowboard film Full Moon. I’ve looked up to this chick forever and am stoked she is still representing on such an epic level even on both the snow and with her clothing.
