I used these to replace the Cole Haan Caldwells that now seem to be discontinued. They were my go-to for about a decade. These shoes fit as expected if you have a history with Cole Haan. The built of the sole is not good for long periods of standing, leading to pain in various parts of the feet. I find this is caused by shifts in the inner sole lining which is disappointing considering the cost of the shoe. Outside of that, I find that each pair makes an annoying squeaking noise as I walk; again I think this is caused by the fact that the inner sole lining does not stay put. This is very disappointing considering the cost. I would not purchase again.
I was in the market for a new pair of dress shoes, and my friend let me try his on, he had a pair of these and the moment I tried them on I fell in love with how comfortable they were, the only problem was they were incredibly squeaky. I though that was specific to the pair potentially due to their level of wear so I ordered a pair for myself and my father as a birthday present. Right out of the box, both of those pairs squeaked too! Frustrated, as I am a regular Cole Haan customer. This isn't just your light leather on leather dress show squeak. This is your "everybody within 50 feet of you can hear you approaching" squeak.
I liked the first pair I ordered. When I bought my first pair, it took about a month to break them in and then they fit well. With my second pair, they have never broken in and they gave me a permanent scar on my heel as I tried to wait for them to brake in. Also, the sole on both shoes separated from the shoe at the toe within 60 days of wearing them. The shoes look great, but I'll never buy them again.
I love these shoes. I have received so many compliments from this shoe. The leather has a good stiff feel and it ages nicely. The style is pretty much classic. I would definitely buy another pair in the future.
This is my second pair. And when they wear out I will likely get a third. I wear them to the office every day. I have a nice standing desk where I am for at least six hours out of each day. Feet always feel great. Nice fit. Good look. Get compliments on them.
LOVE these shoes! These are the first real pair of good leather shoes I have bought and couldn't be more satisfied. They didn't have the British tan in a size 11 so I went 10.5 and they are a little snug, but what if expect out of going a half size smaller. Still comfortable though. The color is a very rich and nice brown. I expect to wear these shoes for many years to come!
Couldn’t be happier! Absolutely a beautiful shoe! The British tan color looks amazing with jeans or dress pants. I order the same size I wear in all my other shoes and they fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable.
