If you want to be reminded of Slack during those rare moments you’re not actually on Slack, just look down at your feet. Footwear brand Cole Haan is out withthat feature the logo of the widely used business communication software, and come accented with the logo’s four colors.
Cole Haan says the new shoes were designed with the Slack crew — over Slack, naturally.
The white Generation Zerøgrand kicks are on sale online now for $120 a pair (that’s about £93, AU$168). The soles, inside upper rims and shoelace tips come in the distinct shades of green, blue, yellow and bright pink that stare up at you from the Slack app icon on your phone’s home screen. Fortunately, no keyboard shortcuts are required to put them on.
On social media, the shoes got mixed reactions. Some liked the clean look, while others couldn’t get in step with the idea of a work productivity tool extending to their wardrobe.
Now please excuse me while I hop on Slack to deconstruct this further.
