These are great shoes but I wish I treated them better. In case this is gonna be your first pair of white leather sneakers be ready to shell out some extra moneys if you want these to last more than 6 months and you a careless person like me.
- Get shoes trees, Moneysworth are solid, wooden and pretty good. - A shoe repellent, Let me cut the crap so don't have to research for hours in. Jason Mark's shoe repellent. - A sneakers cleaner, you need something natural to avoid discoloration and marks or any sort of damage, again Jason Mark's Cleaner and their premium brush. - A leather polish, it expensive but you'll probably never gonna run out of it, Honey Leather Conditioner. - Mr Clean magic eraser. For when you get something on your pristine white sneakers.
Do's and Don'ts
-Do clean your shoes after every wear using a dry soft cloth or magic eraser is required. -Do use shoes trees to save form and prevent crease lines that look absolutely disgusting. -Do condition your shoes are every wash or once every 2-4 weeks. -Do use the repellent spray every month or after every wash. -Do take the laces and throw em in the normal clothes if they are dirty -Do use a shoe horn
-Do not wear them on a rainy day, avoid wetting them. -Do not put them out in sunlight when not in use. -Do not throw em in a washer dryer that a ruin these so quick -Do not use them as skating shoes +Do not rub the leather against rough surfaces +Do not rub magic eraser to hard or dry, I know contradiction but again getting them dirty k?
Things to know. Not super sure if this happens with everyone.
- The letter on the inside on insole are gonna rub off pretty soon maybe one wear. - The shoes when new cool off-white but that some layer that fades away revealing white leather. Be sure to condition and then coat it with repellent. (at least 2 coats) - They look better if you don't see a knot, look up you find what I mean - You don't need no show socks, ankles work. - They will last just don't be complacent. - Cole Haan isn't Common Project but it's not a bad sneaker (it's super under rated) by any margin unless you can afford common projects. - Almost forgot main point THESE ARE EXTREMELY COMFY, I have had them on 18 hour long days unless you don't wear socks these are amazing in comfort.
I think that's all. If I remember anything else I put it here.
La marca es muy buena y los zapatos llegaron en muy buen estado. Lo único que sugiero antes de hacer la compra es revisar la talla, ya que normalmente los zapatos Cole Haan vienen muy amplios y grandes. Por ejemplo yo soy 7 mexicano y en vez de pedir talla 9 americana (que sería la que me corresponde), pedí 8 1/2 y me quedaron muy bien. Sugiero pedir medio número más pequeño del que normalmente usas.
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.
The shoes are very light and very comfortable - ok job, Cole Haan.
However, I’ve never owned a pair of shoes that smelt so bad of plastic. These literally smelt more plasticy than putting your head in a garbage bag. I could smell plastic before I even opened the shoe box. They say they’re leather - complete lie. I’m honestly chapped because they fit and feel so nice, but there’s no way I’m paying what I did for a pair of terrible smelling plasticy “leather” shoes.
I've been a fan of Cole Haan Grand Tours for a long time - the fit, the feel, the comfort, all great! These not so much! They rub my ankle to the point where they bleed after less than 30 minutes of walking. Can't break them in, very disappointed. Waste of $100.
