Colder months are coming, and Cole Haan wants you to be prepared.

Today, the brand unveiled GrandExplore, its line of footwear and outerwear for men and women built to withstand extreme temperatures. The collection features the Alpine Hiker (made with insight from renowned alpinist Freddie Wilkinson) and Waterproof Hiker silhouettes for men, and the Waterproof Hiker for women. The looks pair the functionality of performance outdoor silhouettes with the upscale stylings Cole Haan is known for.

The men’s GrandExplore Alpine Hiker, a lightweight and insulated look, boasts a brass back clip (a nod to metal crampons used for alpine climbing) and a fully waterproof upper. It will release in two colorways (Burnt Sugar Suede and Black Suede) and retail for $250.

The Waterproof Hiker style, executed with a similar appearance to the Alpine Hiker, also retails for $250. It comes in Black Leather and Chestnut Leather Tan iterations.

For women, the GrandExplore Waterproof Hiker is executed with luxurious detailing including a shearling padded collar and soft nubuck upper. It is launching in three colorways (Pumice Stone Nubuck, Black Leather and Woodbury Leather) and comes with a $280 price tag.

“GrandExplore 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,” David Maddocks, CMO and GM of business development, said in a statement.
