Innovation isn't a word that normally comes to mind when discussing traditional formal shoes — but the Cole Haan ZeroGrand No Stitch Oxford is out to change all that. Forgoing traditional stitching, these lightweight shoes feature welded seams, helping cut down on the overall number of components, and an EVA outsole, spine, and foot bed that help reduce weight — each shoe only weighs around 290 grams (based on an 8.5 size). The upper is made from polyurethane die cut sheet stock and polyester rip-stop textile, allowing it to stay rugged while providing a more modern look, and making it ideal for all-day wear, whether you're at the office, dinner, or the after party.

Roger Bannister was the first man to run a four-minute mile. But as far as we can tell, the Vivobarefoot Bannister Shoe wasn't named after him, as it's not really made for running. Instead, this casual sneaker — designed in England and made in Portugal — is meant to give you a barefoot-like feeling when you wear it, thanks to a hand-finished and -polished leather upper, leather foxing, a leather footbed, and a 4mm sole that offers natural foot motion without putting your tender toes in harm's way.
Lazy people know it's true: the downfall of most slippers is their inability to be worn outside. That's not an issue for the Mahabis Slipper. These hand-crafted foot coverings feature breathable, cozy uppers, collapsible backs — god forbid you actually have to bend over to put your shoes on — and a detachable sole in your choice of color that takes them from house shoe to outside-ready in a snap.
Looking for a unique lightweight running shoe? Look no further. Available for one day — June 21 — and one day only, the NikeLab LunarGlide 6 sports upgraded Lunarlon foam for fantastic cushioning without excess weight, as well as an upper sporting a thin engineered foam liner, dynamic Flywire and a heel clip for a lock-down fit, an outsole with an anatomical flex pattern for a more natural range of motion, and your choice of white/black or black/white colorways.
