Sneakers: Cole Haan LunarGuard Leather Collection
I have to admit, the first time I saw a pic of the Cole Haan LunarGuards I wasn’t really too interested in the shoe. Overtime they have grown on me and I have come to the realization that the casual/dress hybrid offers a special sense of functionality accompanied with a beautiful wingtip aesthetic that is distinguished above the rest.
For quite some time now companies have been putting out footwear that wasn’t meant to be worn, but rather admired on a shelf in all their exclusivity. It is great that companies are realizing this and making it a point to add the forgotten functionality element back to the shoe.
I definitely see the future of footwear heading back to its origin where shoes were meant for walking and the Cole Haan LunarGuard is the perfect product to help facilitate the revolution of impeccable design and functionality. Let the resurgence begin!
If you are asking yourself where the hell to get these, the answer is the Cole Haan store on Prince St. in SOHO, which is awesome for people with access to the area, but makes it annoying as hell for others living outside the city.
