Size and fit

The men’s Cole Haan ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneakers have round laces in a six-pair eyelet lacing system. This provides a customized fit for the user. The shoes are made of leather, which needs to be broken in first. Users have advised that you wear socks first to break them in. Afterward, they’ll be so comfy on your feet that you almost can’t tell that you have them on.

Cole Haan ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneaker Style

It’s very rare that a shoe can pass inspection in an office with a conservative dress code, but look stylish enough for a night out with a date or friends. Yet these Cole Haan ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneakers are exactly that. 

These kicks are so versatile that they can be taken anywhere and worn with almost anything. Shorts, jeans, slacks, and chinos can be paired with these sneakers as well as tees, collared shirts, polo shirts, and more. Wear with socks, or don’t. It’s up to you. You’ll still look good any which way you cut it.

The elegant design is reminiscent of wingtip shoes while the all-over perforation details not only provide added accent but also keep the feet noticeably cool.

Three colorways are available for Cole Haan ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneakers: black/white,  blue/white, and British tan/white. 

Notable Features

ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneakers carry the Cole Haan brand’s Grand.OS technology, which gives the outsoles a very flexible feel. The tech is designed to mimic the flexibility of the feet and also reduce the weight of the shoes. It gives the soles responsive cushioning so that each step feels bouncy. 

Cole Haan ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneaker History

Eddie Haan and Trafton founded Cole Haan in Chicago in 1928. The men’s shoe range quickly became known for its exceptional dedication to craftsmanship and style. These two traits have continued to be honed to perfection by the brand in its nearly 90 years of existence.

In 2014, Cole Haan launched a new line of shoes that would be equated with comfort and style. It called this the ZEROGRAND collection. All the shoes in this range contain the brand’s Grand.OS technology.

The main focus of this range is to provide users with versatile footwear that can easily go from day to night. The kicks all feature a classic, dressy shoe vibe but all the comfiness of a regular sneaker. Many models sport a perforated design, and they’re all constructed to be light and flexible.

ZEROGRAND Perforated Sneakers have all the characteristics that made people love the ZEROGRAND line. These shoes give a relaxed athleisure spin on Cole Haan’s traditional wing oxfords. Smooth leather fabric with perforation details cover the entire uppers of the sneakers.
