“Working with Cole Haan represents an opportunity to show the world how far Staple Design has come in this — our 20th year of existence,” said Jeff Staple, founder of Staple Design. “To me Cole Haan is at the perfect intersection of innovation, sophistication and design. I am extremely proud that Staple can now be a part of its storied history.”

The shoe’s functional zonal knitting ensures stability and breathability. Featuring a sleek grey colorway and iconic Staple Pigeon logo, the sneaker is priced at $300 and will be available exclusively on and in select Cole Haan stores.

“Cole Haan is incredibly honored to work with NYC’s cultural icon and influencer Jeff Staple and his Staple Design brand, especially on his 20th anniversary,” added Scott Patt, vice president of Design and Innovation at the Cole Haan Global Innovation Center in New Hampshire. “Jeff Staple and his work represents all that is New York in its grit, adaptation and individuality. This partnership is a celebration of these shared values and our dedication to craft, style and engineering in everything we make.”
