The latest collab takes flight with streetwear pioneer Jeff Staple. It’s a spin on our most groundbreaking style, supporting changes in the way we live and work. The look. The fit. The innovation––it’s all there.
The visionary behind STAPLE, Jeff Staple, has been a fixture in the streetwear scene for 25 years and a longtime collaborator of Cole Haan. He’s best known for his inventive designs, which only fuels the excitement of sneakerheads and collectors alike. “There was a time when you wore a pair of wood-bottom penny loafers and it said something about you,” he reflects. “Today, it’s sneaker drops that say, this is who I am.”
This shoe represents a revolutionary shift in the industry as the ultimate hybrid of dress-casual-outdoor-sport all in one. During customization, Jeff Staple selected colors to represent serenity, while imagining wandering alone in the desert, reconnecting with nature. The groundbreaking design blends a modern style with the constant reminder to unplug.
Every detail was considered from the outside in. A TPU wingtip-inspired overlay provides support and abrasion resistance, combined with our patented medial flex notch to add unparalleled flexibility. The suede is classic to Cole Haan, while the Stitchlite™ knit and rope lacing system ensures breathability and a secure fit. The diamond punch sole delivers comfort, water drainage, and a veritable spring in the step. Even the inside has a special touch with a custom digi-camouflage lining that is a point of pride for Jeff Staple. “I love including hidden details, IYKYK.”
