The launch of the Cole Haan Lunargrand earlier this year had us curious about the potential of more hybrid-like models between Nike and its subsidiary dress-shoe brand. That excitement was enough to keep Cole Haan in the radar of the sneakerhead constituency, but the news of Nike’s divesting of Cole Haan was a sudden roadblock to whatever conceptual ideas were in mind. Until Nike and Cole Haan officially part ways this coming Spring 2013 season, there are still more ‘Lunar’ models to be had; check out the Cole Haan Lunar Penny Loafer, currently set for a release this Holiday 2012 season. Like the LunarGrand WingTip, this fresh design combines the classic Penny Loafer upper with the astounding Lunar outsole for another dress-meets-sport appeal. We’ve got a detailed gallery of two of these four colorways below, so take a look and if you want to cop one of the samples early, check out the available listings from louislouboutin on eBay.
