Cole Haan & Maria Sharapova Serve Up Stylish Ballet Flats

Cole Haan and Maria Sharapova continue to put a sporty spin on a classic shoe. With the U.S. Open underway, Sharapova will be serving up style on and off the court. And while fashion is important, comfort is a priority. The Air Bacara Ballet Flat has been one of the tennis star's most popular styles for the brand. This season, the shoes are done in the same color scheme as Sharapova’s ‘day’ and ‘night’ performance dresses, which were created specially for her by Nike. “We wanted to do something fun and inspired by my love of fashion and sport,” said Sharapova.

These ballet flats are prime for any girl on the go with a day version done in soft gray perforated leather and soft black perforated suede for night. Both feature corset-lace detail at the heel and Nike Air technology.

The Maria Sharapova Special Edition Air Bacara Ballets with be available Sept. 8, 2011 at select Cole Haan locations and for $148.
