Cole Haan has impacted the men's shoe scene over the last decade-plus in a way that will forever change how guys think about comfort in the workplace. It started with a dress shoe-running shoe hybrid that eventually turned into the lightweight Zerogrand—a now-legendary dress sneaker. Shortly after, the brand introduced a business casual sneaker that was a perfect alternative to loafers and looked great with khaki pants, slim suits, and even shorts—and right now, it's on sale.

The iconic Cole Haan GrandPro Tennis Sneaker is on sale for as low as $75 on Amazon—up to a 50% discount on the normal $150 price. These simple tennis shoes have amassed more than 2,500 five-star ratings on Amazon from shoppers who swear they're the "perfect" sneakers for smart-casual outfits, traveling, and everyday comfort. They're available in sizes 7 to 16 with the option for wide sizes and come in a variety of neutral colors. As usual, the final price depends on the color and size selected, but many are still above 40% off.

The GrandPro Tennis is Cole Haan's fashionable take on the classic tennis shoe silhouette and has remained relatively unchanged for the better part of a decade because they got it so right from the start. It features a leather upper with tonal stitching and eyelets—the epitome of subdued. It also has the brand's GrandOS tech in the sole, which is ultra-lightweight, flexible, and has just the slightest bit of bounce to it. Two rubber caps add traction at the toe and heel. The only downside here is having to choose your favorite color.

Those who have roped the GrandPro Tennis into their sneaker rotations agree that they feel and look amazing, but long-time fans attest that they're built to last. "Best shoe ever," as one shopper put it. "I have had this shoe for eight years and went through everything—mud, snow, rain, absolutely everywhere—and the shoes still look good…Very versatile. The quality is excellent. I have plenty of other brand-name shoes but this beats them all."

Many look to this style for its astounding versatility, with a just-right shape that works in nearly any setting. "I love the semi-matte, sorta shiny leather finish," a shopper noted. "It's just right for dressing down or up, depending on what look you want. Also, the tan trim makes for a nice, clean, contrast. The shoes are also very lightweight, about a third of the weight of other brands I have in the same basic style and shape. No complaints—these are quickly becoming my favorite! I just replaced the laces for a little more pop and they look great!"

Whether you're looking for the perfect slim sneaker to wear with shorts this summer or you just need something comfortable and office-appropriate, the Cole Haan GrandPro Tennis Sneaker should be among your top three choices. Now that it's on sale for as low as $79, it's a perfect excuse to pick up two colors.
