These Are Quite Possibly the Most Comfortable Oxfords You’ll Ever Wear
Gone are the days when they were made only from top grain leather—usually in black or brown— and worn only with tailored suits. Oxfords have evolved, and these shoes with a closed lacing system now come in different materials, textures, and colors. One such footwear innovation is Cole Haan’s Zerogrand collection, which infuses flexibility and cushioning into the Oxford shoe, and makes wearing that wingtip or brogue more comfortable.
The 3.ZERØGRAND Fuse Oxford is the third and latest generation of Cole Haan’s ergonomically designed dress shoes. The first two Zerogrand generations focused on delivering unparalleled flexibility, and then exceptional bounce—each time resulting in the kind of dress shoes that bore the functionality and style of sneakers. The third generation combines everything everyone loved about the previous releases into an even sleeker model.
The 3.ZERØGRAND Fuse Oxford’s most noticeable new feature is its upper, which is made from crafted fuse nylon with a wingtip pattern for style and superior breathability—suitable for the Philippine climate. The shoes are incredibly lightweight and easy to slip on and off when you go on trips.
Apart from the fuse nylon upper, the newest Zerogrand model is outfitted with an energy foam-infused midsole and rubber traction pods for (incredible performance in terms of ) cushioning and flexibility.
The 3.ZERØGRAND Fuse Oxford is a handsome shoe. Cole Haan has once again walked the line between sneaker and dress shoe to invent a nice, svelte sneaker that can rub elbows in the boardroom and cut loose in the streets without skipping a beat. It truly is a footwear innovation—comfort and style-wise.
