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.

Our top picks for orange watches for men
TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Automatic promo shot

Like a ripe Valencia orange, bursting with juice and color and plucked off the tree at the perfect time, orange watches for men will zest up your wristwear game. In a sea of monochrome monotony, where the average watch is usually blue or black with a stainless steel bracelet, orange watches will certainly have you standing out.

Orange is not only a great way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, but the color has major significance and use. No, we're not talking traffic cones, Halloween pumpkins, and other unsightly things that famously use the color. It's also seen in a Tuscan sunset, used as a way to see better in the depths of the ocean, or sometimes aids as a symbol of an organization or good cause like environmental conservation.

Tudor releases watch to commemorate Giro d'Italia
Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition on wrist

On May 4, the Giro d'Italia kicked off, with cyclists embarking on a challenging (a simple word for the mind-boggling, grueling race) journey that spans 3,400 kilometers across 21 stages. It started in Venaria Reale and will conclude on May 26 in the land of pasta and pizza, Rome. The Giro d'Italia has an incredibly long history dating all the way back to 1909, but this year promises an entirely modern update with the addition of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team. Naturally, the Tudor watches has introduced a new timepiece to commemorate what is their first Grand Tour.

The Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition, a watch so sturdy it can certainly handle the long name, might look familiar to fans of the brand, as it looks just like the Tudor Pelagos FXD Chronograph Alinghi Red Bull edition from last year. However, as is true of the brand, this Tudor watch embraces some technical specifications that make it perfect for the sport it represents.

Citizen Layers of Time collection

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Citizen watches, and what better way to commemorate the momentous occasion than with a limited edition capsule collection? It's basically the cake and candles of the watch industry. The Japanese brand has unveiled five models that draw inspiration from the rocks and minerals that formed the Earth several million years ago in a geological evolution.
Citizen watches: The Layers of Time collection

Each of the 5 Citizen watches features an Eco-Drive solar mechanism, with transparent dials and a very noticeable special ink developed along with the Fujifilm Corporation that gives them a surprisingly extraterrestrial vibe despite the fact that they represent our own planet. The Layers of Time collection takes inspiration in its design from geological formations and the natural beauty of the Earth's layers, giving rise to the organic patterns and textures you would find in rocks, minerals, and fossils.

The Citizen Attesa Layers of Time Eco-Drive Satellite Wave GPS CC4057-60E features a case and bracelet made from incredibly durable Super Titanium alloy, made even better with a black Duratect finish. It's one of the more beastly watches in the new collection as its case measures 44.6mm in diameter and 15.4mm in thickness, and it's water resistant up to 100 meters. This watch has a bezel adorned with a gradient finish, echoing the colors in the dial, and it's powered by the Caliber F950 Eco-Drive movement, famous for its self-sustaining capabilities in any light.
