Dress-Inspired Streetwear Sneakers

Cole Haan Releases Two New '5.ZERØGRAND' Sneaker Silhouettes

— September 9, 2022 — Fashion
American menswear brand Cole Haan has unveiled that it will be adding two new footwear silhouettes to its fall lineup: the '5.ZERØGRAND WRK Sneaker' and the '5.ZERØGRAND Wing Ox.' By introducing unconventional elements, such as an automatic cord lacing system and EVA midsoles, both models break from the label's traditional designs while still maintaining their Americana styles

The 5.ZERØGRAND WRK fits into the brand's new style category, which it has described as "dress-inspired streetwear." Meanwhile, the 5.ZERØGRAND Wing Ox features a structure that contours to the shape of a wearer's foot. It also comes with a Grand 360 EVA midsole that features a unique diamond shape.

“Since its inception, the Cole Haan ZERØGRAND collection has exemplified reinvention with purpose by seamlessly combining craft and innovation. What started as a simple dress shoe that was unbelievably light and flexible has evolved into a thoroughly modern collection which has become an industry leader and worldwide best seller,” said David Maddocks, Brand President of Cole Haan.
