Will the Nike x Cole Haan LunarGrand Wingtip go down in history as a small piece of sneaker trivia, or a successful mixture of dress shoe and running aesthetics? We’ll have to see how posterity treats them, but for their imminent release you get to be the judge. We previewed this bit of cross branding once before, but we’re back now with some high quality pics that should help you make your decision. They certainly deliver on the front of a top notch wingtip, so it really boils down to whether or not you can pull of them off with the Lunar look mixed in. You’ll wanna make up your mind soon too, as they will be dropping exclusively at the SoHo location of Cole Haan next Friday, February 10th for $248. Follow us after the jump to check out the shots of three of the the five total colorways that have surfaced so far. via Sneaker Freaker
nike owns cole haan so not exactly a collab lol my main problem with these is that they put a comfortable sole on an uncomfortable upper
The price is too high, they're not black, and they're not available at any capacity where people will jump at the chance to get them. Easy pass.
I hope the CH SoHo store ships out shoes ... I will be purchasing both the grey and brown colorways if so!
