Shoes News by Cole Haan : Cole Haan, the innovative American lifestyle brand and retailer, releases GrandExpløre™, a collection of parkas, hikers, and boots built to endure extreme climates. Scaling new verticals and breaking boundaries, Cole Haan incorporates innovative technical features and fabrics with a progressive fashion-forward style ready to tread both the Great Outdoors as well as the city streets.

Designed to reach new peaks of engineering, the men's GrandExpløre™ Alpine Hiker is lightweight and ultra-insulated, engineered perfectly to transition from the slope to the street. Influenced by professional Alpinists who face the world's most severe conditions, the Cole Haan innovation team crafted a stunning hiker that can withstand the elements of extreme temperatures and terrains with comfort always in consideration. The men's GrandExpløre Alpine Hiker features a brass back clip, a nod back to a metal crampon used for true alpine climbing, as well as a fully waterproof wholecut upper, which eliminates water seepage and helps to keep the boot dry.

The women's GrandExpløre Waterproof Hiker features a fusion of technical engineering and elevated outdoor style, that brings an explorer-level of performance and waterproofed winter comfort. Luxurious detailing such as a shearling padded collar and supple nubuck upper offer subtle luxury, while a functional waterproof and seam-sealed construction keeps the boot dry and warm.

"GrandExpløre™ is for explorers of all kinds. Whether you're hiking through the Swiss Alps or enduring winter in the city streets, the collection strikes a delicate balance between beauty and resiliency. Working with our innovation team and Mountain Hardwear, we received an indispensable purview into what's necessary for comfort in the face of some of the world's most volatile conditions and translated those elements into a classic Cole Haan footwear and outerwear," says David Maddocks, Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager of Business Development at Cole Haan.

Crafted in collaboration with acclaimed outdoor clothing and equipment maker, Mountain Hardwear, the Cole Haan + Mountain Hardwear GrandExpløre™ Parka marries the best attributes of the two brands and proudly offers extreme cold weather protection through a modern and stylish silhouette for men and women. The proprietary Q.Shield™ Down technology resists heat robbing moisture and retains maximum loft, even when wet. Full interior and exterior pockets securely organize essentials, while the removable faux fur hood and thoughtfully engineered ventilation offer the ultimate in versatility, style, and comfort.

The GrandExpløre™ collection is available on and in US and international Cole Haan Stores. The men's GrandExpløre™ Waterproof Alpine Hikers are $350 and the GrandExpløre Waterproof Hikers and Moc Toe Boots are $250, with the Cole Haan + Mountain Hardwear GrandExpløre™ Parka priced at $700. The women's GrandExpløre™ Waterproof Hikers comes in Pumice Stone Nubuck, Black Leather and Woodbury Leather for $280, with the Cole Haan + Mountain Hardwear GrandExpløre™ Parka priced at $700.
