Cole Haan ZeroGrand Stitchlite

Cole Haan is known for shaking things up. A few years back, they were the first to put sneaker midsoles on their dress shoes, and now it looks like they’re the first to use sneaker-like uppers on a pair of wingtip oxfords. Just take a look at Cole Haan’s new Zerogrand Stitchlite and you’ll see what we mean.

As far as styling is concerned, they look just like any other pair of sharp, work-ready dress shoes – but with a couple of major differences. The upper, instead of being made from leather, is purely constructed from a stitched fabric. Not only does this allow Cole Haan to do some fun things with the color of their shoes, but it makes them lighter and more breathable. Summer may be a bit away, we know, but just imagine how much more comfortable wearing a pair of these around the city would be compared to those suffocating leather shoes of yours. Prices start at $180. [Purchase]
