A new operating system for your feet.
cole haan is innovation
Cole Haan was born in 1928, but we’re not stuck there. Innovation is as much a part of the company as heritage and craftsmanship, which is why we’re proud to introduce Grand.OS, an ingenious addition to Cole Haan’s reputation for comfort without compromise.
cushioning & flexibility & weight
Grand.OS is an “operating system” for your feet comprised of three major characteristics: increased cushioning, greater flexibility and reduced weight. Applied separately or together, these deliver exceptional comfort without adding bulk. In other words, you’ll know it’s there, but no one else will.
New proprietary cushioning foam that’s stronger, more flexible and longer lasting than anything else on the market. It has exceptional “return,”
meaning it bounces back quickly from each step. It’s far thinner than conventional materials, which allows it to be applied to a much wider range of footwear.
Flexibility is often overlooked, but it’s a key component in creating a comfortable shoe. Grand.OS makes it a priority, with engineered insoles, outsoles, liners and uppers that move with your feet
Grand.OS replaces the heavy steel shanks that have traditionally been used for support with advanced plastics that provide the same stability with much less weight. It also slims down the outsole for a shoe that’s breathtakingly light. The less weight on your feet, the less energy to move them.
