These New Cole Haan Ads With NYCB Are Giving Us That #FridayFeeling

These New York City Ballet dancers (especially the high-spirited Amar Ramasar) capture exactly how we feel on a summer Friday.

Yesterday, shoe designer Cole Haan launched their Extraordinary Comes to Life campaign in collaboration with NYCB dancers, including resident choreographer Justin Peck, principal dancers Sara Mearns, Megan Fairchild and Amar Ramasar, and corps dancer Gretchen Smith. The three dancer-friendly shoe lines are designed to support an active lifestyle, taking you from street to studio in comfortable and stylish footwear.

Stemming directly from Cole Haan's first Grand franchise, ØriginalGrand, the new campaign introduces the dual-gender GrandEvølution collection, as well as GrandMøtion for men and StudiøGrand for women.

We're all for new fashion lines created with dancers in mind, but we're mostly loving the way the photos and GIFs from the campaign capture the dancers in motion. Check out more photos below:

More Than Just a Studio

There's a special connection between dancers and the studios where they spend countless hours—even years—developing their craft. That's why colleges that want to attract and nurture the very best talent invest in the very best resources—like top-quality flooring from a trusted manufacturer like Harlequin—to inspire and support their students both mentally and physically.

Check out these college dance studios—and their sweeping views, eye-catching design, and industry-leading Harlequin floors—that are soon to become a home away from home to the class of 2025.
