A unique, high-impact twist on Cole Haan's signature styles, the wingtip and penny loafer
On November 17th, Cole Haan released a series of classic footwear silhouettes constructed with reflective uppers and available only at Cole Haan SoHo.
This exclusive series of our classic men’s and women’s styles has been re-imagined with the deployment of a special reflective film applied to the upper’s surface. Covered in microscopic glass beads, the material reflects light, giving the surface visual depth and unique texture. Two color choices are offered: silver and black.
“These reflective versions of our iconic wingtips and penny loafers were created to add a flash of visual impact to what's traditionally a black and brown shoe world. It's the idea of taking a classic shoe and adding a bold and unexpected twist" — VP of Design, Phil Russo.
The women's reflective wingtip and penny loafer embody the quality craftsmanship and classic style that is uniquely Cole Haan. The Maliya Wingtip features a leather welt construction, while the Air Penny Moc is designed with a hand-stitched moccasin construction. Both styles are leather-lined with a hand-stained full leather outsole and heel. The reflective upper adds a distinctive flash to any woman’s wardrobe.
The Jayhawker Wingtip is distinguished by an oversized storm welt, heavy stitching and thick leather outsole. A Goodyear leather welt construction enhances the shoe’s overall resilience and durability. The upper features a toe medallion brogue detail inspired by the Trafton, Cole Haan'siconic wingtip named after the brand's co-founder, Trafton Cole. The Monroe Penny Loafer is characterized by a genuine hand-sewn moccasin construction. Fully leather-lined, the shoe is designed with rubber nubs on the outsole to elevate traction and comfort.
Select styles within the Reflective footwear series are constructed with concealed Nike Air technology for enhanced cushioning and support.
The Cole Haan SoHo-exclusive Reflective wingtips and loafers are available at Cole Haan SoHo, 128 Prince Street, New York, 212.219.8240.
