It’s official: you only have 24 days to Christmas. If you’ve already got that gifting list all sorted out, maybe it’s time to treat yourself to some sartorial upgrades. Because these shoes are just too good that you’d want to keep them all to yourself.
As much as style is about looking good, feeling good is just as important. And because great design takes into consideration both aesthetics and functionality, there’s no reason for any compromise.
Cole Haan is one of the leading footwear brands that has been championing the integration of comfort technology into shoes. The result? A range of shoes with elevated designs that feels as great as they look thanks to Cole Haan’s revolutionary patented technologies.
Perforations are a common theme throughout Cole Haan’s new range this season. They provide increased breathability just like pores on skin. The brand’s ingenuity is in the way the perforations are designed – interestingly arranged like on the Zerogrand Laser Perforated Sneaker or discreetly integrated as brogueing like on the Zerogrand Wingtip Oxford.
If sleek black Oxfords are more your speed, the 2. Zerogrand Laser Wingtip ($459) and Washington Grand Laser Wingtip ($539) variations are certainly unlike any other. The former comes with a fully padded interior sock lining that gently moulds around your feet for increased comfort. The outsole is packed with GRAND ØS technology (just like the Zerogrand sneaker) for flexibility as well as that all-important lightweight feel.
The most formal pair in term of aesthetics, the Washington Grand Laser Wingtip Oxford is crafted for performance too. With running shoe-inspired cushioning and thoughtfully designed leather outsole, it still retains Cole Haan’s comfort-driven aesthetic while looking at home with a tailored suit.
Comfort, style and versatility? Santa would give you a pass if you keep any one of these (or all of them) for yourself this Christmas.
