Cole Haan Unveils New Shoe Campaign Featuring Maya Angelou

This is a fantastic honor. What an accomplishment for Cole Haan and how awesome is it that everyone featured is 85 years of age, with the exception of one individual. I also love the fact that the beautiful Mya Angelou is the brand’s “Muse.”


Maya Angelouand all of her greatness, appear in the new shoe campaign for Cole Haan. The legendary writer and iconic poet serves as the brand’s muse for the celebration of its 85-year history.

Debuting in Cole Haan’s stores on September 3rd, the campaign also has a video that we’re dying to see.
