A teaser image (which we’ve brightened) shows the upcoming sneaker designs. | Image: Cole Haan Shoemaker Cole Haan is collaborating with Slack, everyone’s favorite occasionally offline workplace messaging service on a new pair of limited-edition sneakers.

Countdown’s dictionary corner expert Susie Dent said she is “gutted” after her book was published with a series of typos. Susie’s book – ironically called Word Perfect – was released on Thursday, but it soon became apparent that an earlier, unedited version of the text had been printed. Susie tweeted: “Thank you to everyone for supporting my book. I’ve just discovered that the initial printing used a pre-edited text. I’m so sorry about this. I’ll be in touch as soon as I can with details on how we’re going to fix it.”The lexicographer later said she could “testify to the effectiveness of ‘lalochezia’”, which describes the use of swearing to alleviate stress and frustration.Thank you to everyone for supporting my book.
