Cole haan: quality or no?
What can the shoe experts here tell me about these shoes that I got today? They are black leather, made in Italy, stitched leather soles (how do you know if the stitching is good, how do you know if the soles are any good?). I couldn't find them with Google to find out if they were good quality, how much they retail for, etc. The numbers inside next to the place where the size is stamped are: C10219 9 1/2 M840. I couldn't find any information using these numbers either. So I turn to the folks here.
Here are a couple of photos:
I got these brand new today for $60. Was that a good price? Yes they are Cole Haan but they appear to be good Cole Haan.
