Cole Haan X Maria Sharapova Special Edition Release
Classic American brand Cole Haan and tennis sensation Maria Sharapova serves up an unbeatable special release of a collection classic, the Air Bacara Ballet Flat. For the first time, Cole Haan and design collaborator Maria Sharapova present a footwear style inspired from the colorways of Maria’s ‘day’ and ‘night’ performance dresses created by Nike for this year’s 2011 Flushing Meadows tournament in New York.The special edition Air Bacara Ballets, crafted with style and innovation, suit any young woman on-the-go. The “day ballet,” created in soft perforated leather, comes in a feather grey hue with neon pink lining for a touch of feminine flair. The “night ballet” captures the essence of an evening shoe in black perforated suede with a bold chickadee yellow lining. Both pieces feature the signature corset-lace details at the heel, reflecting Maria’s youthful energy and playful spirit. In keeping with Sharapova’s belief that women needn’t trade performance for style, the Air Bacara’s sleek silhouette also utilizes Nike Air technology, along with rubber pod bottoms and elasticized topline construction to ensure that while you look good, you will also feel good.
“The Air Bacara Ballet is one of my favorite Cole Haan styles within my collection,” says, Maria Sharapova. “We wanted to do something fun and special inspired by my love of fashion and sport.”
