Cole Haan x Harrods – American Shoe Label Launches in Harrods

by Keanu Adorable

Inspired by the motto “Manhattan to Maine, Invention and Reinvention”, the Chicago founded footwear label, Cole Haan recently dropped its new Spring 18 collection, and it’s a quality line up. The company launched in the UK last year and continues its expansion through the UK’s finest department stores with a new collaboration with Harrods. The brand’s showcase in Harrods is located on the Lower Ground Floor of the Men’s Shoe Salon. It features panelled surfaces in gunmetal blue and fittings wrapped in charcoal grey leather to provide a sophisticated retail backdrop for the brand, which is known for its smart shoe/sneaker hybrid based on its bespoke Grand.ØS technology.

A five-piece collection, the line-up is comprised of signature styles like the ZeroGrand with Stitchlite Wingtip Oxford are presented alongside new launches such as the GrandPro with Stichlite Runner. Cole Haan’s GrandPro Tennis in black, navy, white and brown, and the ZeroGrand Wingtip Oxford in marine blue, are also available.

Grand.ØS replaces the heavy steel shanks traditionally used for support in footwear with a modern and updated cushioning compound which is stronger, more flexible and longer lasting, reducing the overall weight and slimming down the shoe’s outsole.

The men’s GrandPrø Tennis shoe weighs less than a third of the average leather court shoe, weighing in at 250 grams (based on a men’s leather court shoe in size 8.5). Other key features of the footwear are: an operating system designed to mimic the foot’s natural flexibility and light-weight foam footbed cushions which support weight distribution and moisture control.

We advise you head down to Knightsbridge ASAP as these will be snapped up sooner than later. The Cole Haan brand is also available for men and women on its UK website.
