Ever since I purchased my first pair of Zero Grands a year ago, I've been a new convert. I had no idea that I could wear a pair of shoes that is professional, goes well with jeans or a suite, AND be comfortable. I could walk in these shoes all day! The first pair I ever purchased were a dark brown upper with a matching dark brown lower sole. I really put those shoes to the test in June 2018 when I wore them at a wedding reception. I danced non-stop for almost 6 hours. The next day, I had no foot pain!! That's never happened before!!
I set out to find another Zero Grand that could be worn even more casually than the brown ones when I came across these Ironstone colored shoes. The pictures on Amazon and a few other sites made them look like a light brown - which I didn't want since I already had a dark brown pair. Ironstone as a color is more of a gray. I read the other reviews of which some stated (out of disappointment) that they are really more of a gray than a brown. I purchased on faith with those reviews in mind and sure enough, they are very much gray with some light brown accents around the material edges. I couldn't be happier! I'm taking them out tonight to a Christmas party and then later to a Birthday party for their debut!
I will say, in general, I find that Cole Haan is outside my budget. When I purchase them, I always shop around and wait until they are on sale, closer to around $100 - it can be done!
Zerogrand wing that melds a future vision with old school craftsmanship. great dress/casual shoe with comfort and flexibility to wear with cords and denim.
