August 14, 2020

Kodiak, the pioneering Canadian bootmaker that champions the ability of individuals to change the world one step at a time, has announced the introduction of its new Built for Generations collection of men’s and women’s lifestyle boots for Fall/Winter 2020. Celebrating Kodiak’s 110th anniversary as Canada’s Boot, the Built for Generations collection is highlighted by the women’s Cloverdale Plaid and Canora Plaid waterproof styles and the men’s McKernan Chukka and Clayburn boot – all of which are perfect for everyday exploration.

“We celebrate Kodiak’s 110-year anniversary as Canada’s Boot with the introduction of our new Built for Generations collection. Built for Generations showcases Kodiak’s legacy as a timeless and reliable companion to generations of urban adventurers, outdoor enthusiasts, and tradespeople,” said Karen McSorley, senior brand manager. “This collection reimagines Kodiak footwear for today’s ever-changing and challenging global landscape by embracing our familiarity with all kinds of weather to thoughtfully design a line of premium, durable, and comfortable boots that will effortlessly transition people between seasons and occasions.”


The new women’s Cloverdale Plaid and Canora Plaid silhouettes are Kodiak’s hero boots for Fall 2020. Inspired by the Kodiak Original work boot, also known as the Greb boot, the Cloverdale and Canora integrate work boot function with on-trend style via seam-sealed waterproof leather uppers with statement collars lined with a soft-to-the touch Buffalo plaid lining. Waterproof membrane construction combines with a removable leather-covered, dual- layered EVA and Ortholite® footbed to keep feet dry and comfortable. Both the Cloverdale and Canora feature a premium leather-welt with a wooden stacked heel that supports Kodiak’s signature slip-resistant rubber chevron outsole. The 200-gram Thinsulate® insulation ensure feet stay warm. The Cloverdale Plaid 9 1/2” boot (MSRP: $200USD/$210CAN) is available in Wheat Muddy River premium leather, while the Canora Plaid 7 1/2” boot (MSRP: $185 USD/$195 CAN) is available in Cocoa Maiden and Black Muddy River premium leathers.


For men, the Fall 2020 season brings refined ruggedness in the form of the McKernan, a classic 4” chukka and the Clayburn 5” city boot, featuring premium waterproof leather uppers and removable pre-molded Clarino® footbeds. Crafted with a leather welt, a lightweight EVA heel and Kodiak’s signature chevron mini-lug rubber outsole combine to deliver all-day comfort.

The McKernan chukka (MSRP: $165 USD/$170 CAN) will be available in rich copper brown Loco Horse leather and rugged black Muddy River leather; and the Clayburn (MSRP: $175 USD/$180 CAN) will be available in a smooth black Prague Leather and rich copper brown Loco Horse leather.
