It certainly did come as a surprise that Nike would amalgamate some of its proprietary technologies to its subsidiary Cole Haan. The only surprising part is how long it took for the Lunarlon sole to reach the fine footwear label. Brand new for 2012 will be the Cole Haan LunarGrand, a series of classic oxfords with suede upper in brogue styling and a sole entirely in Nike Lunarlon. The design is understated and just right mix of contemporary and traditional, in other words, just something for every style. You can see this and more from the latest Sneaker Freaker issue, available now at specialty bookstores near you.
