With the legacy in women’s footwear, Coach is making a bid to go back to its roots with its debut men’s footwear collection for Fall 2014. The leather goods label which was founded in 1941 with a view to offer leather goods for men inspired by a worn baseball glove, has over the years found a strong foothold with women’s wear and accessories. Though the brand has offered a select few styles each season for men but its steady sales in the last four years has lead the brand to expand into a complete men’s lifestyle brand.
Coach, under new creative director Stuart Vevers, launched a men’s watch collection in November. The latest footwear collection is part of brand’s overall strategy to reposition itself as a lifestyle brand. The collection will include 15 styles ranging from sneakers, boots, lug-soled boots and monk straps priced from $175 to $495. The colors will range across generic menswear color palette of black, espresso, cognac, mahogany and cordovan.
The men’s footwear collection will be available at the Coach’s New Bond Street flagship from 1st September.
