Ahhh, Mr. Haan, when are you going to start making shoes we hate? Our closets are filling up, and it is 100% your fault.
We’re officially annoyed, and it’s solely because of Cole Haan’s newest shoe launch, the effortlessly handsome 4.ZERØGRAND Oxford sneaker. After all, there are only so many Cole Haan shoes a man can justify owning. Available in six handsome colors, someone’s going to have to take away our credit cards before we buy one of each.
Like a lot of Cole Haan’s footwear, the 4.ZERØGRAND exists in that sweet spot in between formal and casual, giving us the ability to dress them up or down as we please. And like the recent 2020 Cole Haan collab with Staple Pigeon, these shoes aren’t afraid to use color in exciting ways. While most men’s dress shoes stick to black, brown and gray, the 4.ZERØGRAND use a splash of color that sets them apart from business-as-usual Oxfords.
The overall look will be familiar to Cole Haan fans, as they take elements from the GRAND36Ø and the iconic ZERØGRAND Wingtip Oxfords to create a hybrid shoe ready to take on the town.
Only to add to 4.ZERØGRAND‘s level of uniqueness, the style is available in two different silhouettes for men: the first being a hip Wingtip Oxford and the second being a more semi-professional Plain Toe Oxford style to spice the look up a little. But are they cozy, you want to know? The shoes are from Cole Haan, so they’re obviously designed to be as comfy as sneakers. The footbed cushion is squishy yet dynamic to give the wearer a flawless heel-to-toe transition and flexibility you don’t typically get in a typical Oxford. With that being said, these will probably go down as one of the most comfortable Oxford shoes you’ll ever wear in your life.
The 4.ZERØGRAND‘s slip-on with a sort of sock-like fit, so they’re easier to get on than any alternative. Although they’re pretty complex in style, they’re also really lightweight, so it won’t feel like you’re lugging around your feet all day long. These shoes are built to last with a durable full-length TPU outsole finish that also provides no-slip traction on most surfaces. Tripping and slipping will forever be a thing of the past as long as you have these babies snug on your feet.
All styles are currently for sale on Cole Haan’s site ranging from $220 to $230. Pair these with your most dapper suit and tie look for work or dress them down and give us a bomber jacket, pocket tee and cuffed ripped jean look. They’ll be sure to fit your style however you choose to wear them. If you’ve got a lucky lady in your life you want to surprise, the 4.ZERØGRAND‘s are also available in various women’s styles as well, so don’t forget to snag a pair for her before you check out.
