Maria Sharapova embodies the blend of fashion and sport that makes Cole Haan Sporting unique,” said Cole Haan Chief Executive Officer James Seuss. “We created this collection as the foundation to a dynamic lifestyle weaving Cole Haan’s history of craftsmanship with Nike’s tradition of high-performance innovation.”

The line presents new technologies like Flywire, which is built on the successful Nike Air franchise by recasting them into fashion-forward designs.
Cole Haan Sporting for Spring 2009 will unite sport style with a accumulation inspired by court, nautical, track, and golf.
The women’s shoes collection includes sleek sandals, heighten wedges, chic flats.
Signature men’s styles include the brand’s edgy lace-ups and boat shoes in bold color gammas paired with classic neutrals.
Maria Sharapova says,
I have a passion for fashion and if I weren’t playing tennis, I’d probably be in school for it or for interior design”
I’m not coming into the company to make the Maria pump. I’m there to add that really young touch and flavor to it.”
She goes on to add,
Cole Haan Sporting proves that fashion and technology can work together to change the way women think about and wear sport-inspired product. I look forward to working with Cole Haan to bring new innovations to this leading fashion brand with such a rich history.”
