Hot on the heels of the LunarGrand Wingtip comes the Cole Haan LunarGrand Chukka ($300). Like its dressier predecessor, the Chukka features ultra-lightweight Lunarlon cushioning and a distinctive ribbed sole, as well as nubuck uppers, rawhide laces, and a simple, elegant outline. Available in four colorways, exclusively at Cole Haan SoHo.
Barefoot-style footwear and cross training haven't really mixed well — until now. The Nike Free Haven 3.0 ($100) brings the Swoosh's ultra-flexible platform to 'trainers for the first time, offering a super-flexible seamless upper, a mesh inner sleeve, a dual-pull lacing system and soft "fingers" across the midfoot and arch to lock your foot down, and a DiamondFLX pattern on the sole for added traction when performing lateral or diagonal moves. Of course, that's not to say that you can't run in them — something tells us they'll do just fine for that, as well.
Looking to add a little military flair to your summer wardrobe? The Nike Air Force 1 Max Air VT ($TBA) should do the trick. The fourth entry in the AF1 XXX series, this unique low-top features a full-length visible Max Air unit with total orange highlights, a Vas-Tech upper with a dark camo pattern, waxed laces, and an embossed leather tongue and heel tabs. Avoid pairing with camo cargo shorts, unless you're going for a full-on Army look.
