Canada Goose launches footwear for the first time
As if dominating outerwear weren’t enough, Canada Goose, a supplier of quilted, fur-trimmed coats, announced that it will also try on shoes.
The brand, which is headquartered in Toronto, will begin rolling out a range of hiking boots and shoes as early as November, just in time for the slush and snow season. In 2018, Canada Goose added Canadian shoe brand Baffin to its portfolio, so the expansion of padded coats into the footwear world is not entirely out of place.
“We started with the best outerwear and the warmest jackets in the world and expanded from there into other categories, such as lightweight down jackets, knits and other apparel,” said the CEO. from Canada Goose, Dani Reiss. Forbes. “With shoes, we follow the same principle of starting small, taking our time to design the best product, and launching the product thoughtfully. “
Like its iconic coats that regularly cost over $ 1,000, Canada Goose boots won’t come cheap.
For starters, there will be two pairs: a high-top boot called the Snow Mantra boot, which will cost $ 1,295, and a hiking boot called the Journey for $ 70. Both pairs from the initial launch are unisex and are made from waterproof materials. They have that long-awaited Canada Goose look, with technical rubber soles and premium materials that make them feel like they would be a good choice for hiking a rugged pass during a winter squall, or just as easily (and probably) to be carried to grab beers at your neighborhood brewery.
You can purchase a pair from the brand’s website when it launched, as well as from any of its retailers, including Nordstrom. And don’t sleep too much on them, because if the cult around her mantle is any indication, these boots can go fast.
