When Hasan Minhaj arrived in New York in 2014 to audition for The Daily Show he didn’t own a suit or a pair of dress shoes. He slipped on a pair of Cole Haans — the interior of the shoes reminded him of sneakers — and the rest is history. The Cole Haan x Hasan Minhaj Collaboration celebrates both his Indian-American heritage and the storytelling inherent in great comedy. Leading the collection are two styles of 4.ZERØGRAND Waterproof Hikers, one in a subdued black, and one in a more vibrant colorway reminiscent of Bollywood cinema. Both feature the words “survive” and “live” on the pull tabs as an homage to Minhaj’s immigrant father, as well as waterproof leather uppers, insulated lining, a triple-density GrandFøam system for sneaker-like comfort, and a full-length tread pattern on the outsole for outstanding grip.
