The low-top Cole Haan StudioGrand Knit Sneaker is available US women’s sizes from 5 to 11. This sneaker fits true to size but some have advised that it runs large. Subtracting at least a half size from the user’s regular size should be sufficient to overcome this possible issue. Its knit upper and Grand.ØS fitsock deliver impressive comfort and seamless fit.

The Cole Haan StudioGrand Knit Sneaker’s essentially minimal silhouette and basic color schemes make it a great option for casual activities to semi-formal occasions. Whether it is paired with skirts, denim jeans, or shorts, wearers will never run out of ways of matching the low-top with their fashion ensembles.

The Cole Haan StudioGrand Knit Sneaker has a thinned-out outsole that provides adaptive flexibility while its Grand.ØS footbed delivers cushioning and all-day comfort.

The shoe company Cole Haan started in 1928 at Chicago, Illinois by Eddie Haan and Trafton Cole. Back then, it only manufactures footwear for men as the sneaker’s popularity was mediocre at best. The company was able to survive the decades due to its high-quality products. It also helped that it started making shoes for women and children, as to widen its target market.

In 1975, the company was acquired by George Denney and his partners. Because of their marketing efforts, Cole Haan steadily became one of the top US shoe brands. By 1982, the brand has a retail division, which consists of around 40 shops worldwide. Cole Haan was able to reach a peak in annual revenue sales in 1996, to the tune of almost $70 million.

In 2012, the company’s ownership changed again. Apax Partners Worldwide bought Cole Haan from Nike for $570 million. Currently, the brand’s products are sold at its own retail stores all across the US and high-end department stores like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. Outside the US, Cole Haan products are available in various outlet stores, making it accessible for everyone.

Cole Haan offers a broad range of products for men and women such as clothing, lifestyle footwear, sunglasses, and a variety of accessories. One of the latest additions to its collection of women’s lifestyle kicks is the Cole Haan Studiogrand Knit Sneaker, which was first released in 2018. So far, most of its colorways are tonal.

  • Cole Haan defines the Grand.ØS as an “operating system” that is engineered to address the foot's complex demands.
  • The color schemes available for the shoe are Black, Marine Blue, and Rainy Day.
