Hailing from Salt Lake City, Sam Taxwood was surrounded by the best resorts, street spots, and all-mountain terrain in the world. As a diverse rider with flexible style, it's no surprise that Sam gravitated toward the Standard MTE—the modern standard in winter boots. Complete with traction, warmth, and weatherproofing wrapped in Vans style, the Standard MTE in Sam Taxwood's signature colorway features leather and synthetic uppers, Standard MTE snow boot outsoles, removable felt liners, waterproof vulcanized rubber lowers, and a waterproof seam-sealed construction to keep your feet warm and dry. Coupled with the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound snowboard boot and a Mid-Slip MTE SF shoe, the Sam Taxwood collection performs in anything . . . so you can give it your everything.
