Coach, the high-fashion brand known for luxury leather accessories, is branching out into men’s footwear. Already established in women’s shoes, the brand announced a full collection of men’s footwear that will be launched internationally in September.

“We’ve had men’s shoes in our stores in the past, but haven’t gone after a full collection until now,” Coach’s Senior VP, Greg Unis, told Women’s Wear Daily.

The collection will include 15 styles ranging from sneakers, boots and monk straps priced from $175 to $495.

Coach’s foray into more menswear is the latest indication of its expansion into a complete lifestyle brand, WWD reports. The brand launched a men’s watch collection in November and may debut a menswear ready-to-wear line in February during New York Fashion Week.

“We can’t confirm nor deny,” Unis told WWD. “We’re really still working through it.”
