Cole Haan Disrupts Wingtip Convention: Introduces STAPLE ØriginalGrand Ultra

Cole Haan, the iconic American lifestyle brand and retailer, has joined forces with street culture icon, Jeff Staple, for the second time to help celebrate its latest iconic men’s footwear style – ØriginalGrand Ultra. The Cole Haan x STAPLE ØriginalGrand Ultra Collection fuses Cole Haan’s renowned innovative technology and traditional craftsmanship with STAPLE’s streetwear sensibilities to provide a unique and approachable take on this revolutionized wingtip oxford.

“Cole Haan and STAPLE have been design partners for many years now. I’m lucky to work with their innovation team and play with their technological innovations as they are developed,” commented Jeff Staple, Founder of STAPLE and Staple Design. “I want to create products that have a special feeling, but are totally wearable on an everyday basis. I’m not interested in creating works of art that never get worn. I make streetwear, and that means I want to see it on the streets!”

The limited-edition collection elevates Cole Haan’s offering of the ØriginalGrand Ultra Wingtip with a pop of STAPLE’s signature Pigeon Pink, while maintaining the level of technology behind each pair. A high-volume dual-density GRANDFØAM footbed provides a soft initial feel, followed by plenty of energy return on each step the wearer takes. Additionally, an internal stretch bootie wraps his foot in a cozy, sock-like feel, while padding at the shoe’s tongue and heel conform for great fit and no break-in required. Every component from the upper design to the foam density is optimized to reduce weight, so he can go further than ever.

“Cole Haan is honored to call Jeff Staple a friend and working with STAPLE to celebrate the ØriginalGrand Ultra was a true combination of creative and inventive thinking,” adds Cole Haan’s Chief Creative Officer, Scott Patt. “Our long-standing partnership with Jeff is a celebration of our shared value to create modern footwear and lifestyle products for the modern professional.”

The Cole Haan x STAPLE ØriginalGrand Ultra collection is available on ColeHaan.com and in select international Cole Haan stores starting today, July 9, 2020. Both the Wingtip Oxford in Black Leather and Camo Suede are priced at $180.
