It’s Happening: Coach Shoes for Men

Men, rejoice. Even the uninitiated know that Coach has long been a dominating force when it comes to women’s bags and shoes. And though the brand has dipped its toes into the menswear world in the past, it’s now getting ready to fully dive in. How? By launching its first full collection of men’s shoes.

What can you expect? Fifteen styles – think oxfords, monkstraps, chukkas, and more – in Italian leather and suede. As Greg Unis, Coach’s senior vice president of men’s global merchandising, told WWD“We’ve had men’s shoes in our stores in the past but haven’t gone after a full collection until now. The goal for launching [these shoes] is to continue to grow the lifestyle expression of our brand. There’s such a natural connection between leatherwear and craftsmanship [and] the cool aesthetic we have, and bringing that collection is the natural next step.”

Shoes range from $185 to $495 and will be available at all Coach stores come September. (Just the excuse I need to drag my significant other into the store with me.)

Shopping Equality: Coach Renovates for Men

Guys, are you tired of walking into stores only to find a miniscule-sized men’s section next to the sale rack? Times are a-changing. The newly renovated Fifth Avenue flagship Coach store is catering to you.

“Nearly a third of the 3,720-square-foot space is now dedicated to their men’s accessories, as well as their recently expanded ready-to-wear collection (including outerwear and knits),” writes Max Berlinger for Esquire.

“In addition to more acreage dedicated to the brand’s array of male-oriented leathergoods, there’s now a separate men’s entrance that leads to an interior outfitted with dark wood floors, slate gray walls, and chrome and leather furnishings.”

A super-exclusive entrance? We’re on the verge of jealously.
