Water-Draining Boat Shoes

Cole Haan Releases the '4.ZERØGRAND Regatta Boat Shoe'

— May 21, 2022 — Lifestyle
American footwear brand Cole Haan has announced the launch of its latest laid-back sneaker, the '4.ZERØGRAND Regatta Boat Shoe.' Being a boat shoe, the new model boasts a one-of-kind waterproof treatment consisting of a combination of nylon mesh and recycled plastics.

In addition, the shoe features extra-grippy outsoles and a GRANDFØAM midsole for shock-absorption support. However, one of the new sneakers' most innovative features is its 'Tidalflow' drainage system. This unique component works to funnel water out of the sneakers in the event that a wearer gets their feet soaked while seafaring.

For those interested, Cole Haan’s 4.ZERØGRAND Regatta Boat Shoe is now available to purchase on Cole Haan's website, where it is retailing for $140 USD.
