The Downtown Collection Launches Fall 2022

STONEY CREEK, ON (Sept 19, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Baffin, the iconic Canadian based brand that has been designing & manufacturing top-performing, cold-weather boots since 1979, is proud to introduce the Downtown Collection, a new series of urban winter boots, available now on the Baffin website & in select outdoor retailers across North America. Inspired by those who brave the cold of winter in cities and urban locales, embracing chilly temperatures with every step they take, the Downtown Collection introduces modern footwear made with proven technology, comfort, and warmth.

The new collection, which features two men’s styles and three women’s styles, is a fashion-forward but function first range that contains a combination of Baffin proprietary technology. A true performance winter boot disguised as a shoe, the Downtown Collection provides the same confidence in cold-climate protection as Baffin’s substantial winter boots.

The Downtown Collection (MSRP: $170- $200 USD) features two men’s styles, TAVERN and DISTILLERY and three women’s styles, LIBERTY, YORKVILLE, and HIGH PARK; all are available in brown and black leather. With uppers made from soft, outback leather and wool lining, an Ultralite high-rebound midsole and Polar Rubber® outsole, the Downtown Collection provides comfort and slip-resistance made to endure cold and slick conditions.

The collection features Baffin’s Fixed-Fit multi-layer inner boot system, with proprietary technology including:

  • Thermaplush™ soft, next-to-foot wicking layer for warmth
  • Form-fitting B-Tek™ Foam lining for comfort
  • B-Tek™ Heat lightweight 4-channel hollow-fibre insulation for high-loft breathability in a broad range of temperatures
  • Fixed frost plate to return heat while reflecting the cold for temperature regulation.

“At Baffin we are passionate about exploring the world around us in the cold, whether that means trekking to the North Pole or adventuring in our own neighbourhoods, in parks and trails or on city streets. We’re excited to introduce the Downtown Collection to our growing range of lifestyle winter boots,” says Mark Hubner, Senior Vice President, Commercial at Baffin. “This collection is made to reach a new audience of customers, who may not need a heavy-duty winter boot everyday but wishes to have the same warmth and comfort. Style is important, but function is always first.”

The Downtown Collection is Northern Rated in Baffin’s Real-World Testing™ (RWT™) evolution, which helps recommend cold-comfort levels associated with Baffin footwear. Northern Rated Products have been proven from rivers and glaciers across the North. With B-Tek™ Dry Waterproof Breathable technology, the collection will protect from the elements, while providing lightweight comfort for active lifestyles.

The Downtown Collection is available on Baffin.com and in select outdoor retailers in North America.
