Cole Haan GrandExplore Waterpoof Alpine Hiker

Category: Style

Combining contemporary sneaker technology with classic dress shoe silhouettes is kind of Cole Haan’s thing. They’ve been rolling out distinctly modern kicks for years now, but this new GrandExpløre Waterproof Alpine Hiker is something else altogether.

While most weatherproof leather boots will feel as hefty as they look, this pair from Cole Haan barely moves the needle on the scale. This is thanks in large part to Grand.Os, a special amalgam of mid and outsole technology that gives the boot a lightweight, flexible, and breathable feel. More than just featuring a lot of specialized materials, these boots look great thanks to the suede upper construction, handsome brass hardware, and leather heel. Whether you’re just looking to stay seasonal this winter in the city, or actually need a pair of tough boots – these will surely stand up to whatever task it is you’re looking to take on.

Purchase: $350
