In a fashion match made in heaven, Rodarte’s killer aesthetic meets Cole Haan’s cloud-like soles for a new limited-edition capsule collection. The Rodarte x Cole Haan collaboration looks as good as it feels. The Rodarte designers, sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy, brought their signature aesthetic to the accessories brand. Cole Haan’s silhouettes—think booties, shoeties, pumps and slip-on sneakers—got a Rodarte makeover in ebullient hues like bubblegum pink and true red, with textural touches in embossed faux croc leather, lace, and studs. Though it’s hard not to want to snap up every single piece, these are the standouts from the collection:

Cole Haan x Rodarte Pump

Cole Haan’s classic pump gets a classic Rodarte twist. The timeless heel suddenly feels edgy, thanks to the mix of fabrics—leather, lace, and neoprene uppers—and the bright color scheme. Bubblegum pink and red pop even more against the black, and the pink studs lend punk flair. They’re made with Cole Haan’s signature “GRANDFØAM” cushioned footbed, a lightweight foam outsole and a molded footbed to keep your tootsies cozy all day.
