    Try Traffic. I bought from them before orange shoelaces for my brown/orange lunargrand chukka. The laces are softer that the lunargrand ones.

    Knot the loops after tying your laces together.

    For those of you that are curious about utilizing the "free maintenance" of Cole Haan, I tried their service. Upper photos are the before, and the lower photos are the after. Truthfully, the blue ones on the left looked the same, but the sole was cleaned nicely (though I could've probably done that . The beige ones on the left, they were able to take off the denim stains at the ankle part of the shoes, so that was pretty nifty. Just be prepared to part with your shoes for a little over 2 weeks.

    Thanks for the advise. Didn't know they offered free maintenance. I should bring my shoes in. Does this apply even to CH shoes bought abroad?

    Yup! I didn't have to show any receipt at all, they took it in, got my information, and texted me when it was ready :)

    It doesn't look like using shoe trees isn't big here :)
    I use them on almost all of my shoes and make sure to put them back after using the pair.
    It extends the life of shoes, especially leather ones, and neutralizes the smell.

    I bought 2 pairs of The Original Shoe Tree Company shoe trees in Amazon last year. I find it too expensive here. There is a good selection of shoe trees in Heel Sew Quik in SM Megamall.

    To those who have ordered from the Cole Haan site before, can you guys check if your account is showing any order history under order status?

    I went online to check the status of the recent order I placed and my account says I have no order history.

    UPDATE: I called them up and they said their mobile site acted up earlier. It's now fixed and I can see my Order Status again.

    Finally bought my first Zerogrand. From a local Cole Haan store, not a bad deal.

    ^ Thanks Chief! Got it on sale with BDO credit card promo, came out to just P10,360 at Cole Haan Rockwell, even cheaper than US prices that I was researching. Also, they had my size here, so it was really God's will. :)

    Had two other choices in mind:

    This one was on sale too:

    But the neon yellow-green was too attractive to pass up.

    I love the 2nd one. It's the no stitch oxford, if I'm not mistaken. I ordered the Black Metallic colorway from their US site. I'm still waiting for the package.

    If you end up loving the Zerogrands, you have to sign-up for email alerts in their online store. I ordered 5 Zerogrand pairs for $490 (tax included). If not for the sale and promo codes, I could've ended up paying $1250.00 + tax. Even with the Php5k shipping fee from LBC Shipping Cart, I still ended up paying way less than what they're normally priced here.

    Not sure if i'm in the correct shoe thread but since we're talking about Cole Haan here. Does anyone here already have a pair of their Grandpro (the white tennis shoes).
    How is it? I'm looking at those white pairs since I don't have white shoes in my arsenal. :) Or does anyone have any other alternatives. Thanks a lot!

    http://cdn8.themanual.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/ColeHaanGrandPro-2.jpg here is image of the pair that I was talking about.
