With the ever thinning line between fashion and sportswear, creations such as Cole Haan’s ZeroGrand Short Boot are becoming ever more prevalent. As fashion labels look to athletic or sporting goods as their inspiration for design, we will continue to see the unification of sportswear and fashion as much more than a flash in the pan trend, but a new direction for contemporary menswear/footwear.
With the Cole Haan Holiday 2014 ZeroGrand Short Boot, we see a cushioned sole unit similar to those recently popularized by Nike and Adidas. The sporty ‘sneakerboot’ is the perfect addition to any gentleman’s footwear collection—dress them down with joggers and a denim jacket, or up with some raw denim and a wool overcoat. In Cole Haan’s chic iteration, we see three new colorways; limestone/ash gray, black/camo, and folkstone/blazer blue. The impeccable level of craftsmanship is apparent in the Short Boot’s weather-resistant construction; including leather uppers washed in rich hues, EVA midsoles with deep and inured rubber outsoles, natural storm welts, and lastly Cole Haan’s ZeroGrand technology ‘for ultimate comfort.’
The Cole Haan Holiday 2014 ZeroGrand Short Boot collection, priced at approximately $298 USD per pair, is now available via Cole Haan’s webstore.
