Lifestyle footwear and accessories brand Cole Haan (New York) has opened its landmark 500th store at the Livat Centre in Beijing. The milestone locale caps Cole Haan’s expansion over the past decade, which has seen it expand its retail footprint from 13 countries in 2013 to more than 100 countries.

“From the early days of our launch of Cole Haan as an independent company following our acquisition of the business [from Nike], we envisioned the opportunity to bring this iconic American brand to a broader global audience,” said CEO Jack Boys. “Over the past decade, we have expanded our product assortment, our talent, and our partnership with a network of world-class distribution partners globally. As we reach this important milestone, we are focused on a range of opportunities we have created for the future of Cole Haan.”

The brand’s global retail presence includes premium shopping malls and destinations worldwide, including the World Trade Center in New York, Valley Fair Mall and South Coast Plaza in California, and Houston Galleria in the United States. In the Middle East, the company’s partners have opened stores in Dubai Mall, Emirates Mall, Place Vendome in Qatar, and Mall of Arabia in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

In Asia-Pacific, Cole Haan can be found at Taikoo Hui in Shanghai, the new store at LiVat in Beijing, the Harbour City shopping mall in Hong Kong and in Ginza and Harajuku in Tokyo. In Central and South America, the brand has stores within the Polanco district in Mexico City and MultiPlaza Mall in Panama. The retailer has also opened shop-in-shop locations in the United Kingdom at Harrods and Selfridges department stores.

To support its expanded global presence, the company recently opened its first regional office in Dubai, which joins existing offices and showrooms in New York, Toronto, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
