Stio Announces Product Line Expansion with Launch of New Colter Footwear Collection

October 3, 2022

JACKSON, Wyo. (October 3, 2022)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Stio, the mountain lifestyle brand headquartered in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, announced expansion of its product line today with the launch of its new Colter Footwear Collection. Bringing the brand’s expertise in the mountain life to footwear, the line features 6 styles in total designed for functional comfort, breathable warmth and casual style that delivers the versatility needed to get from town to the local hill and everywhere in between.

“When creating the line, we had one main goal in mind. We wanted to deliver a collection authentic to our mountain life. Each style needed the ease of a sneaker, comfort of a slipper, and the cold weather utility of a winter boot,” said Stio Chief Product Officer Kelly Hill Shuptrine. ”We are incredibly pleased with the final product. The entire collection features the warmth, durability and traction needed to withstand winters in the Tetons, yet in a classic, casual style that can be worn while heading out for drinks with friends.”

Built for the best in both look and function, the Colter Footwear Collection combines a premium, waterproofed leather outer with a looped poly wool blend lining and insulation for added comfort and warmth. Each style also features a lightweight, streamlined outsole with slip-tested traction, and a partially bio-based midsole for extra support and cushioning with a lighter environmental footprint.

“In the mountains winter isn’t optional—it’s one of the reasons we love living here so much and is why we make clothing that encompasses the complete mountain lifestyle. Entering into the footwear category was a natural progression for the brand, and it has allowed us to leverage the knowledge we’ve gained from years of designing technically superior, high-performance mountain apparel ” said Stio CEO and Founder Stephen Sullivan.

The new collection includes the following styles in both men’s and women’s:

  • Colter Boot – Flawlessly dialed for aprés with protection and comfort when the temperatures drop, the Colter Boot is an everyday go-to for those who call the mountains home year-round. The seriously treaded yet lightweight sole delivers traction worthy of a winter in the Tetons. A tall cuff and premium waterproofed leather resist the elements while the wool blend lining provides inner warmth without overheating. The smooth, slip-on design with webbing pull loops eases carside to slopeside transitions.
    MSRP $169
  • Colter Mid – Inspired by the spirit of the brand’s mountain town home, the Colter Mid Shoe was designed to step out confidently with distinctive style, whether enjoying outdoor après or commuting to the town hill. Feet stay dry and comfortable thanks to the protection of premium, waterproofed leather and a cozy inner wool blend lining along with a lightweight sole that provides slip-tested traction for slick winter conditions.
    MSRP Mens $159; Womens $149
  • Colter Low – Combining the performance of a technical shoe with timeless style and the comfort of slippers, the Colter Low steps up your look on crisp, cool days around town. Premium, waterproofed leather resists the elements and cold temps with casual style while the wool blend lining gives toes just the right amount of warmth. For slippery streets and sidewalks, the lightweight, streamlined sole offers slip-tested traction. Elastic, no-tie laces provide a custom fit and the collapsible heel converts to a slipper when it’s time to shift from about-town action to more casual lounging at home.
    MSRP $129
