Inspired by the nonstop pulse of summer, popular men’s style destination JackThreads teamed up with the shoe designers at Cole Haan to create the Capsule Collection, a line of shoes designed for all facets of a man’s life.

For David Maddocks, the CMO and GM of Business Development at Cole Haan, the collection is a perfect compliment to the busy days of summer, when men are rushing from the office to after work drinks to a formal party.

Maddocks remarked that designers were able to echo this hectic rhythm by “creating versatile styles that are not only timeless, but interchangeable for any occasion.”

“We want our guy to be able to go from work to play seamlessly,” he added. “We want them to have a strong foundation of key pieces that will not only keep him fashionable but cover all of his functional needs.”

This fashionable and functional aesthetic manifests in a trio of shoes that marry timeless Cole Haan silhouettes with sport-forward performance technology: the ZeroGrand Oxford No Stitch (pictured below in red, $270), the GrandPro Tennis (pictured in white, $160) and the Pinch Weekender (pictured in blue, $100).

While the three shoes fill different voids in a man’s wardrobe (the Oxford is the perfect work-to-play shoe, while the Tennis and Weekender are ideal options for casual wear), they all received a summer face lift with cushioned gum rubber soles, added arch support and suede details. The resulting designs are sleek, yet playful, classic, yet undeniably modern and fresh.

Though this marks their first collaboration, Maddocks says the partnership between Cole Haan and JackThreads worked well because of both brands’ dedication to supplying their customers with excellent products.

“We always look to evolve with another brand that shares our same deep appreciation and respect for premium craftsmanship, superior quality, timeless style and of course, innovation,” he commented. “So the partnership with JackThreads was a natural fit!”

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
