The Cole Haan Change Forward™ initiative represents our goals and our efforts to better ourselves—and the world around us.

In the nearly 100 years we’ve been here, much has changed. Now, it’s time for us to change too. We are advancing our Grand.36Ø Design & Engineering System—and focusing on finding innovative ways to make our products more sustainable, without compromising our reputation for performance, function, and craft.

It’s a process, but all great change starts with a few first steps to move forward.

Our garden is growing.

Since launching our first sustainable sneaker in the spring of 2022, our assortment of consciously-crafted products has expanded. From performance and casual footwear, to bags and accessories, our Sustainable Collection delivers thoughtful and innovative design, engineered with a minimum of 25% naturally derived or recycled content by weight.

Our mission to deliver Sustainable Innovation in our products.

The mechanics of the human body is the central focus of our Grand.36Ø Design & Engineering System and we are always looking for new ways our products can complement natural human performance. We call this “Natural Design.”

Now, our goal is to give “Natural Design” an enhanced meaning by actively seeking environmentally conscious naturally derived or recycled materials for many of our product components. And, for leather components, we are prioritizing responsible leather sourcing.

Every day at Cole Haan is a work in progress. We’re learning—and unlearning—with each step we take. We’re integrating this thinking into our everyday work. We’re actively seeking partners and suppliers who share our mission. And, we’re making breakthroughs as well as correcting any missteps along the way.


The steps we’re taking to Change Forward.™


When you see the word SUSTAINABLE next to Cole Haan products, you’ll know there’s a minimum of 25% naturally derived or recycled content by weight in that product.


Featuring dandelion rubber and cushioning engineered to keep you going and growing all day, our patented FlowerFoamTM sole is made with a minimum of 25% natural dandelion rubber. Here’s to a little flower power.

Look for this revolutionary sole in countless styles, from boots to sneakers, and even our latest collection of fan-favorite ØriginalGrand Oxfords.


There are four primary benefits we seek to deliver in our products:


Natural Motion

Responsive Cushioning

Energy Return



We will start by asking ourselves how we can bring thoughtful simplicity to our design practices – making streamlined products with less ingredients and less impact in the first place.
