Fit & Sizing
Its knit upper offers optimal breathability and comfort while the traditional lacing system is there to provide a secure fit. The brand’s expertise on dynamic and static tight gauge stitching allows the sneaker to deliver a foot-hugging and lightweight fit.
The low-top Cole Haan GrandPro Running Sneaker with Stitchlite is available in US men’s sizes from 7 to 16 in Medium and Wide widths. Many warned that the shoe runs larger than the regular size. Deducting half to a full size should be sufficient to compensate the sizing inaccuracy.
The sneaker's mobility and cushioning are credited to its Grand.Øs soles. In addition to its stylish appearance, the knit upper offers moisture control. Thanks to its construction, one can do different paces of exercising such as squatting, lunging, and running without hurting the feet.
Cole Haan Grandpro Running Sneaker with Stitchlite History
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. One of the recent additions to its lifestyle shoes catalog is the Cole Haan GrandPro Running Sneaker with Stitchlite, which was introduced in 2018. It currently has four color schemes.
