How are Cole Haan shoes? - Page 3

post #31 of 43
While I didn't buy any, I did check out the Cole Rood & Haan series recently. They appear to be better made and use better quality than the typical Cole Haan shoes. I wanted to see what their "archive" offerings were like and they're not bad. Of course they have a price to match the better quality.

Compared to what?? puzzled.gif What were you wearing before you got these?

I've never been able to figure out how you can tell the difference between a glued shoe and a blake stitched shoe simply upon site.

Can you share some wisdom with us?

It would be nice if the new owners of Cole Haan would bring back the quality at least to the level it was during the green label made in Italy days. Unfortunetly said owners seem to focus on discount brands.

I have prosthetic feet due to an explosion from a mine in Kuwait, sooo I wore my combat boots then? Now I love to out do my prosthetic feet with nice shoes such as Vintage Boots and Shoes. And don't get hung up on my User name there Mr.Monty. Josey Wales is a fictional character anyways! 😕 And also what difference does it make if I was wearing boots issued by the Army or flip flops from a dollar store Monty? Bless your heart.

I rotate about 10 pairs of shoes, 2 of them being Cole Haan with the Nike Air soles.  They have held up well so far (about 1 year) and seem very comfortable.  They are disposable shoes basically, not something you would pay to have re-soled or anything.   I actually like them a lot and people compliment them on a regular basis.

Nothing wrong with Cole Haan shoes at a discounted price.  Some of them are even GY welted and some vintage ones are made by EG.

 

Had a pair for ~$60 brand new, wore it for 3 years until a hole in the sole with cork exposed, threw away.  I guess I could've just glue something to the sole to give it another year or so.  It's comfortable, shines up well.

This.  

 

I have one pair like that. Paid a little too much for them (just over $100) but I'd buy them again if I could get them cheaper. Not at full price.

I have their Air Morris Wingtip Oxford as my walking shoes. They are comfortable, really good shoes for the task.

I have a pair of penny loafers I purchased on sale, so far their great. I would never pay for price for Cole Haan's.

Agreed Nike nearly ruined the name of this brand. I am glad Nike is now out of the picture. What business pro wants air technology in his shoes...gonna play basketball on his lunch break?
