Whether you're an avid runner or a fan of casual walks and hikes, we all know how important it is to find the right pair of shoes if you'll be on your feet all day. And if you're in the market for a new pair of sneakers, either for everyday or athletic activities, Cole Haan just released two new running shoe styles for men and women that seamlessly blend comfort and style.

The new launch includes the ZERØGRAND Overtake, which stands out for its responsive cushioning, and the ZERØGRAND Outpace, which is designed to be supportive yet impressively lightweight. The brand as a whole is known for its comfortable shoes, from boots to sandals, that feel good on your feet without compromising style, and these new athletic styles are no different.

These shoes have a shock-absorbing foam sole that provides rebound in every step, helping to propel you forward while you move. A breathable stretch mesh upper provides enough ventilation to keep feet cool and comfortable. Plus, plenty of traction on the soles helps you move over any terrain with ease.

I tried these running shoes out for myself, and I loved how the cushioning felt, particularly on long walks. The sock-like fit is impressively comfortable, and makes the shoes feel as if they were made for me. Plus, with four color combinations for women and six in the men's version, you can be sure to find a shoe that fits your style. The black and rose gold combo adds just enough flair to my athletic looks, making these shoes an instant staple in my wardrobe.

The Outpace style is a lightweight shoe that's sleek enough for everyday wear yet still functional and supportive enough for running. Layers of cushioning provide soft padding in every step. Plus, achilles padding and a molded synthetic heel counter hold your heel in place, adding comfort and stability. There's just enough traction in high-contact areas to prevent slipping without adding extra bulk to the shoe. These shoes are available in five colors each in men's and women's styles, and they also feature reflective elements for visibility in low-light.

To buy: (women), $150; (men), $150
