Introducing The Cole Haan Oxfords With Running Shoe Guts

Cole Haan has unleashed their brand-new shoe line of lightweight Oxfords, ZeroGrand, on the US masses. You should expect the same level of attention to detail, craftsmanship, and style in their brogues, with some serious structural innovation—each weighs around 290 grams (10.2 ounces). For reference, the average Nike running shoe is about 8-10 ounces.

The beauty lies in the near-seamless construction. Simply put, fewer parts and fewer seams mean a lighter shoe. Aiming to rid classy gents everywhere of the muscle fatigue that accompanies clunky dress shoes, Cole Haan engineered these brogues to be sexy and functional with classic perforated detailing and the flexibility you can expect from a running shoe.

They come in black, grey, and army green, in both stitchless leather and suede, and ensure you'll never have tired, unstylish feet ever again.
