Every day I walk down Michigan Ave. on my morning commute. I walk past the same stores, window shopping at the ones that continually peak my interest. The Cole Haan store is one that always catches my eye and with the new release of the ZeroGrand I had to stop in to take a closer look and slip on a pair. Weighing in at 290 grams ( a little over half a pound), the first thing I noticed was how remarkably light and functional the shoe is. Great for business trips, walking to work and/or walking to the bar after work, weddings –you name it. These brogues are also great to wear sockless, as it breathes easily and allows air to flow through which each step.
“The outstanding thing about ZeroGrand is the fact that it is highly engineered, yet beautifully designed and crafted,” David Maddocks, Chief Marketing Officer of Cole Haan, said. ”We compromised nothing. It’s stealth. It’s sleek. It’s the perfect complement to a modern, slim-cut suit—in a way that says, I mean business, but not business as usual.” See the full interview here.
With Wedding Season in full swing, it’d probably be in your best interest to find your color and pick up a pair here.
