The brand started in 1928 and was founded by Trafton Cole and Eddie Haan. Its original name was “Cole, Rood & Haan.” Back then, it only produced shoes for men. The company managed to exist over the decades, but in 1975, it was acquired by a group of partners led by George Denney. These executives began to groom the label into one of the top U.S. footwear brands.
A retail division was built in 1982, which consists of over 40 shops worldwide. By 1996, the company was able to earn almost $70 million annual revenue. In 2012, the brand was bought for $570 million by Apax Partners Worldwide from Nike.
Today, Cole Haan offers a wide range of products, such as men's and women's clothes, casual footwear, sunglasses, and other accessories.
