If you’re a shoe lover like me then the news that Cole Haan, has just launch Made in Maine, USA – a limited-edition collection blending quality American craftsmanship with timeless designs is something that you will find of interest.
“Creating a shoe that will last a lifetime is an exceedingly personal, painstakingly accurate process from start to finish and is the very definition of American craftsmanship. This quality has allowed Cole Haan to build a legacy that lives on today,” explains David Maddocks, Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager of Business Development.
Hand-forged by artisans in Lewiston, ME, the Made in Maine, USA collection represents a homecoming for Cole Haan, paying homage to the brand’s roots.
One shoe alone requires the expertise of no less than five different artisans, each with their own unique skillsets. An individual pair of shoes can take as long as 30 hours to produce, ending with overnight drying to ensure shape and structure.
The end result is a meticulously constructed and elegantly designed product that, if properly cared for, will last a lifetime.
The Made in Maine, USA Collection is available now on www.ColeHaan.com and in US and international Cole Haan Stores with retail prices $325 and $400 dollars.
