The Design of Cole Haan’s GrandPro Slide

Former Cole Haan designer, Brett Brown recently shared some of the initial 3D modelling of the Cole Haan GrandPro Slide.

“This was such a fun project to work on, the Cole Haan GrandPro slide sandal. Cored out diamond pattern for traction, the same pattern but inverted on the footbed for an elegant look and soft feel, big branding on the straps.
This was primarily all designed in 3D. I only did a handful of initial sketches before jumping into 3D to start blocking out the forms. Modeled in maya, rendered in zbrush.” – Brett Brown

You can see some of the initial models, and also some pictures of the final product, below.
