Chaco Focuses on Mountain Lifestyle in Fall ’15 Footwear Collection


Rockford, Mich. (December 17, 2014) – Chaco, the market leader in performance outdoor sandals, dramatically expands its collection of Mountain Lifestyle shoes and boots for the Fall 2015 season. Chaco has incorporated rich leathers, warm fabrics, and heritage patterns­­, all with the support and comfort of the brand’s legendary LUVSEAT footbed, into a collection of stylish but comfortably outdoor footwear. In addition to the Mountain Lifestyle line, Chaco introduces a new complement to the highly successful OutCross Evo performance shoe platform. All new styles will debut at Chaco’s booth (#32136) at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in January 2015.

“Our new Mountain Lifestyle collection is really an exciting opportunity to significantly grow our four season business,” says Chip Coe, Chaco general manager. “Our product team really nailed it with styles, materials, and colors that are on-trend and a natural brand extension for us.”

With its Mountain Lifestyle collection, Chaco adds six new styles for women and three for men. Highlights in the collection include the women’s Barbary, a stylish but functional boot with a variegated wool fold-down collar and a mix of wool and water resistant, full-grain leather in the upper, as well as a plush, wool-fleece lining. The Hopi is an easy pull-on boot with an ombré wool side panel wrapped in premium full-grain, water resistant leather. Unique details including an antiqued metal chevron buckle, decorative emboss treatments, and a wrap around strap complete this luxurious look. The men’s Jaeger boot, with its waterproof, full-grain leather upper and timeless styling, is ideal for everyday wear. All of the shoes in the Mountain Lifestyle collection feature Chaco’s grippy EcoTread™ rubber outsole with 15 percent recycled rubber content and three to 3.5 millimeter lugs for excellent traction in slippery conditions.

Continuing to evolve from sandals to trail capable shoes, the OutCross Evo 4 for both men and women offers performance, protection, and support. This versatile shoe easily accommodates land-based adventures with its mesh and synthetic leather upper. The 15 percent recycled, non-marking EcoTread outsole has 3.5-millimeter lugs for durable traction, and a TPU heel lock integrates with the lacing for a secure, stable fit.
