Canada Goose Steps Things Up With November Foray Into Footwear

As the cold rolls into the Northern Hemisphere, Toronto’s Canada Goose has got you covered — now from head to toe. Come November, the ubiquitous purveyors of fur-trimmed puffer coats have announced they will now be featuring luxury footwear. The boots will be released just in time for the arrival of slushy sidewalks and snowy streets in the maple state.

The boots will be the third new line in Canada Goose’s campaign to extend winter wear beyond the parka, kicking off some four years ago with knitwear in 2017. In 2020, fleece jackets and hoodies arrived on the scene. Today, CEO Dani Reiss reported that this new apparel alone is expected to exceed $45 million in sales this fiscal year. The success of venturing “Beyond the Parka” is credited to a step-by-step expansion into adjacent weather wear that lives up to the brand’s standards.

“Part of the success of the Canada Goose brand is keeping it pure from the start,” Reiss told Forbes. “We started with the best outerwear and warmest jackets in the world and expanded out into other categories.”

Goose’s mission to wrap wearers in the best that winter’s worst can throw at its gear also aligned with its 2018 purchase of Canadian footwear label Baffin. Not only did the outerwear purveyor purchase Baffin, they sought to learn from the footwear maker.

Rather than just slap a Canada Goose logo on a pair of Baffin boots, its innovation team applied a brand-centric process to the new footwear line. Baffin even continues to operate as a standalone company. This slow approach aligns with the high-end weather wear’s product philosophy, Reiss explained.

“With footwear, we are following the same playbook of starting small, taking our time to design the absolutely best product and launching the product in a thoughtful way.”

Post November’s boot launch, Canada Goose will achieve full lifestyle brand status. Customers will be able to dress head-to-toe in the brand’s hi-tech fashion. Goose further asserts that the all-weather boots are completely waterproof and packed with high-tech performance attributes.

The well-heeled boots won’t be cheap in construction or in cost, however.  Canada Goose plans to retail the white high-top Snow Mantra boot for $1,295 and the versatile, all-terrain Journey hiker boot for $750 for both men and women.

Goodwill Superstore in Portland, Oregon.

On October 4, 2022, the Associated Press broke news that the Goodwill used clothing store group launched GoodwillFinds. Meanwhile, Thredup, via research firm Global Data, estimates that the second-hand clothing industry is expected to grow 16 times more quickly than its peers in the overarching retail clothing sector by 2026.

With this dive into the online thrift store realm, The Manual decided it was time to unearth the best online shopping ventures. Here’s where to thrift, secondhand style.
We might as well start at the latest spot. Goodwill has a potential gold mine on its hands, and shoppers who get in early might be able to mine its valuable precious metals, textiles, and home goods. According to the AP, the store now has about 100,000 donated goods available for online purchase. Until now, shoppers would either have to sift through individual stores or surf to secondhand sites like, eBay, and Amazon to find stores and people hawking their found treasures.

This season’s men’s fashion icon is Popeye the sailor man
How Popeye the sailor man became a high-fashion icon

At 93-years-young, Popeye the sailor man is stylin’ this fall. The King Features icon who first appeared in 1929 (per Britannica) is now the main character leading international men’s fashion. Maybe it's the mean mug, or maybe an all-spinach diet just makes you live forever…

Now at the forefront of the pop culture scene, it’s not the old sailor guy who is gracing global high fashion houses. King Features and six international textile designers joined to reimagine Popeye with styles that meet and speak to upcoming generations. This co-op spans decades and oceans, from Seattle across the Atlantic to the UK, and down through the Middle East into India. While the sailor is riding a wave into the future, this isn’t his first time sailing in vogue seas.
