Golf fashion takes a nostalgic twist as Cole Haan joins forces with Byrdie Golf Social Wear to create a stunning limited-edition women’s golf collection inspired by the love of the game, heritage, and a touch of vintage flair. The Coastal Collection combines the classic charm of the 70s country club era with modern functionality, designed to empower a new generation of female golfers.
Rachelle Wates and Hayden Shoffner, the founders of Byrdie Golf Social Wear, found inspiration in their grandmothers’ love for golf, which they fondly passed down. Their brand carries the essence of those cherished moments and celebrates the timeless elegance of vintage golf styles. And now, in partnership with Cole Haan, they present the Coastal Collection, a must-have ensemble featuring eye-catching stripes, seashell prints, and refreshing light blue and vivid green hues complemented by neutral earth tones.
This collaboration brings together the heritage of both brands, reflecting on the past and embracing the future of women’s golf apparel. The Coastal Collection pays homage to the 70s and also celebrates Byrdie Golf Social Wear’s origin—the grandmothers who inspired the founders to create a brand that would revolutionize the industry.
Central to the collection are two iconic Cole Haan golf shoe styles, specially designed for women: the ZERØGRAND Fairway and the ØriginalGrand Shortwing Oxford Golf Shoe. Both shoes effortlessly combine fashion and function, catering to the modern female golfer’s needs. The spikeless design with rubber traction ensures stability and performance during swings, while Cole Haan’s signature GRANDFØAM™ technology guarantees unparalleled comfort for hours on the course.
David Maddocks, Brand President of Cole Haan, shares his excitement about this collaboration, saying, “Cole Haan is continuously making waves in its women’s style across all categories. We are excited about this collaboration with Byrdie Golf Social Wear because our missions are in lockstep—we both want to bridge the gap between modern fashion, comfort, and performance.”
Rachelle Wates, Co-founder, and CEO of Byrdie Golf Social Wear, expresses her enthusiasm about this partnership, saying, “We are thrilled to work alongside the creatives at Cole Haan as we debut our first women’s golf shoe with the limited edition Coastal Collection. We created Byrdie Golf Social Wear with the female golfer in mind and wanted to bring fashion-forward pieces to a male-dominated industry. Our goal is to inspire confidence and comfort in the younger generation of golf enthusiasts on and off the course while showcasing their personal style—we believe Byrdie’s collaboration with Cole Haan does just that!”
The Cole Haan x Byrdie Golf Social Wear golf shoes are now available on ColeHaan.com and in select stores in the US, Japan, and internationally. With every purchase, golfers will also receive a special wooden tee and ball marker adorned with seashell prints, adding an extra touch of elegance to each swing. The limited-edition packaging features actual photography of the founders’ grandmothers, making this collaboration even more unique and personal.
