To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I always love the quality of Cole Haan shoes. These shoes are very stylish in a minimalist design. Very light in weight, only 215gm per shoe on my digital scale. Insole is well padded and comfortable. Size does run a slightly bit long, but wide enough for those with slightly wider feet like mine. I haven't had much ankle pain from the shoe rubbing, but then I haven't walked all day on these shoes yet. The inside of the shoe does have a slightly grippy suede like lining material, which may rub on the ankle if you wear very thin socks or no socks. The heel height is also a bit higher, but I included a photo comparing to other Cole Haan shoes with similar or slightly lower height backs of their shoes.
I don't do reviews anymore since Amazon seems to be random at removing them, but I feel I should warn you guys...
The back of these shoes is the stiffest, most unforgivable back I've ever worn. First day wearing them to a conference, I was in agony the entire day. I caught two cabs to avoid walking. I don't know what it is, the design or the lack of padding on the heel, but these are not for walking. Driving, maybe?
Only reason I'm giving them 3/5 is because I know you won't read the rest of the reviews. These are torture. They look dope, though.
It's very handsome, light, simple, and fits perfectly at 9D. It could be worn with a suit but is comfortable and grips better than than a lot of expensive dress shoes. I paid $65, $44 less than the $109 list price so there are deals out there.
