The best spring sales in men’s fashion this year have included everything from running shoes at Dick’s Sporting Goods to business casualwear at Bonobos for up to 60% off. Cole Haan also factors into the rankings, as it’s fresh off a major sale of its own that featured one of its most-anticipated business casual sneakers of the year with a surprising discount. Somehow, select colors are still marked down today even though the sale has ended.

The Cole Haan Zerogrand Remastered Wingtip Oxfords are on sale for $150—a 32% discount on the original $220 price tag. Though it only launched in March, this updated version of the classic dress sneaker has already garnered over 100 five-star ratings from shoppers who say it’s even “more comfy” than its predecessor. It’s currently marked down in a classic brown and a medium gray in sizes 7 through 13 with wides available.

Reinventing classics can be a daunting task, but Cole Haan is on a quest to use more recycled content and found ways to implement this ethos without taking away from the lore of the Zerogrand. The Remastered model features a near-identical silhouette, with the same flexible sole and broguing. The new upgrades include the brand’s FlowerFoam sole, which is made from 25% dandelion rubber, as well as a little more cushioning and a slight increase in sole flexibility. The biggest upgrade, however, is the new rubber sole inlay, which solves the decade-long issue of the Zerogrand not having enough traction—a huge win.

While it’s easy to resist change once you’ve found a fit you love, many early adopters of the Zerogrand Remastered are pleased. “A great shoe made better,” as one shopper put it. “I have been wearing this shoe’s earlier versions for many years. I always found the shoe to have soft leather and good cushioning. The recent improvements to the toe box have been a game changer. The shoe is now more comfortable both with and without socks. Also, adding the new FlowerFoam has taken the comfort to the next level. My first time wearing the new shoes was earlier today. I spent all day on my feet and the shoes performed as though they had already been broken in.”

Other shoppers agreed that the new design is still as comfortable (if not more) than the last. “Very comfortable,” another shopper said. “Feels like I’m walking on pillow cushions. After standing up for six to eight hours of instructing, I no longer have that lower back pain from standing too long.”

It’s safe to say that the Zerogrand Remastered isn’t going away any time soon, making it a great time to grab a neutral brown or gray while they’re on sale for just $150.
