The sneakers come in four styles inspired by “the pandemic-related rise of remote working,” Cole Haan said. And with many workplaces pivoting to virtual work models and utilizing technologies like Zoom and Slack to connect with co-workers, the shoe is on target with casual work-from-home attire.

The shoes, called Generation Zerøgrand, retail for $120 and will be available online and in some Cole Haan stores starting Oct. 7.
