Cole Haan Grandexplore Reviewed
Founded in Chicago in 1928, the name comes from founders Trafton Cole and Eddie Haan. Back when the company was founded, it was originally named Cole, Rood & Haan, because it catered merchandise solely aimed at the male part of the clientèle.
Today Cole Haan offers both male and female merchandise and it has more than 70 store locations all over the world. And today they create the shoes, bags and the rest of the accessories for people that are stylish and resourceful at the same time.
In recent times, the Cole Haan label has become a favorite among celebrities like Taylor Swift, Olivia Palermo, and Emma Watson, but for now, let’s focus on one the most highly sought after models in the Cole Haan shoe lines. The Cole Haan Ggrandexplore Boot.
Iconic as the label itself, the Cole Haan Ggrandexplore Boot is a must for every winter outfit, and a staple in every closet but for the details on the boots you can read below in the post.
Premium suede construction
Shearling padded collar
EVA midsole and outsole
No vegan option
The GrandExpløre Waterproof boots incorporate the innovative technical features and quality fabrics with a fashion-forward style ready to make the most out of both the Great and the city streets. The boots are a progressive fusion of technical engineering and outdoor style that elevates the wearing experience and brings an explorer-level of performance. The winter comfort has never looked better.
The Grand.ØS technology is astonishingly lightweight, adaptive in its flexibility and responsive to the terrain that’s facing on the daily basis. The white is dominant color in the entire outsole while the tiny fraction is covered with just as durable black outsole to make things a bit more visually interesting.
What about that gorgeous fur that can be found on the opening of the boot? Well, it’s real fur and it originates from sheeps that were breed in Australia. The dyed shearling comes from the premium grade Australian sheeps, and it just helps with the temperature regulating properties. Although it may seem like a decorative piece, the shearling piece on the top of the upper is there to keep your feet warm as well. It doesn’t allow the cold, the moisture and the dirt to penetrate within the shoe, and coincidently it has the ability to keep you well and safe. Amazing isn’t it?
And last but certainly not least, the lace up system is done with the classic lacing pattern. The laces are thick, round and durable like the rest of the shoes and they go all the way up to the opening of the boots. You’ll be impressed with the quality of the laces alone, not to mention the quality of the Ggrandexplore Boot.
What will surprise you the most about the Grand.ØS technology’s properties is the longevity that’s been added to a simple material like a rubber. Yes, rubber is found in plenty of other boots, sandals and even sneakers, but the Grand.ØS technology makes the outsole long lasting, unbreakable and indestructible to any type of weather conditions or terrain.
The only thing that could improve the overall quality of the boots if the fur used in the collar, was also used in the lining of the boots. It would make the boots even more comfortable, and it would enhance not only the fit, the aeration and moisture wicking properties, it would make them more comfortable to the skin. But overall, this is one fantastic boot. It works well for just about any terrain and works fantastically with any style. With the skinny jeans that you own, with a mini dress and thick leggings, and even with the thick yoga pants that sit in the back of your closet.
The GrandExpløre Waterproof Hiker boot is a versatile, sturdy, curable and comfortable boot that will last you a lifetime. You won’t regret buying this boot, and you’ll reap the benefits of that boot in the years to come.
