Cole Haan has recently introduce the next-generation shoe: ZeroGrand.
Weighing only 290 grams each, ZeroGrand is the lightest and most flexible shoe Cole Haan has ever produced. Fusing centuries-old broguing details with biomechanics, modern materials and today’s manufacturing techniques, Cole Haan has considered every detail in the make, mass and motion of this shoe. Shot by World-renowned photographer, Kenji Toma, he captured the innovation and craftsmanship in this highly engineered shoe.
With Cole Haan being such an Iconic brand with a long lifespan, it’s quite awesome to see them adjust to the word I loathe the most “Trend”, but it is also very savvy of them to keep up with the times; especially in a day where everyone wants to wear tennis shoes “Running shoes
” around town. The first shoe you see is the ZeroGrand Oxford No Stitch
. This is definitely the perfect shoe for me, being that I wear black a lot, and I’m usually dressed in dress clothes, with that being said these would be a great alternative to my hard bottoms that sometimes crease when I’m doing a lot of kneeling or all that walking that comes with living in New York City. The No Stitch is also being offered in different colors on the Cole Haan site. The Wing Oxford
is one of the lightest weight casual shoes to hit the market. Made of reverse full-grain suede, one of the highest quality suede leathers from C.F. Stead Tannery
in the United Kingdom. The suede has been laser treated to add pinking and decorative stitch details; talk about running in your Cole Haan’s these shoes look as if they’ll make you run faster. Is Cole Haan new competition for Nike & Adidas
? I never would’ve thought Cole Haan would have been so sporty, but with this collection their proving they too can produce more than just a shoe for the gentleman who wants to be heard coming down the hall!
The Wing Oxford also comes in Black as well as an array of different colors on the site for the days when Grey just don’t quite go with the look you’re going for, and it’s great for the days when it’s raining here in New York City, and you don’t want your grey shoes to get dirty, because we all know how Clean NYC is haha just a bit of humor, but in all seriousness these are perfect for the everyday man living in an metro-area where walking is your man means of transportation; even if you can’t keep these shoes on once you get in the office. Say you’re a lawyer or a guy on wall street and it’s all about which hard bottom shoe you have on these are a great second shoe to carry while you’re waiting for the subway or walking up to the office!
I’ll have to be honest, and say the ZeroGrand Oxford No Stitch
is my favorite out of these three shoes presented before you.
Ready for winter already? ZeroGrand also has a Tall Boot releasing on October 1st, 2014. The ZeroGrand Tall Boot is a casual lace-up boot. The rubber heel and toe pods increase durability and a break in the welt and flex grooves increase flexibility. No Picture yet, it’s a surprise!
