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.
These are beautiful shoes. And as is customary for the brand, Light as a Feather. However, they are not worth even half the price of their GrandPro series counterparts.
Most importantly, the sizing is woefully inconsistent. I traditionally wear an 8.5 in Cole Haan, 3 pairs in 2 colors and the “Medium” width varied over 1.4 inches in 2 of them, and the 3rd was closer to the narrow ones. The most narrow pair was unwearable.
Secondly, once I picked a pair that “fit” and returned the others, I gave the remaining sneakers 5 separate 1 hour walks thru my neighborhood. Each walk separated by 3-4 days. And after each walk I had a new blood stained area on my sock. I get it, shoes need to be broken in. But 5 hours of walking and 8 band-aids, for sneakers?
Finally, the sole of both sneakers was noticeably separating on the left shoe, and the right shoe already had 3 creases. I wasn’t playing street hockey. I was just walking around a relatively flat 4 mile circle.
My Cole Haan GrandPro slip-on sneakers from (now) 3 years ago, which I wore with religious fervor, show less wear on the soles. And have earned their creases. Love the brand. Stick w/ the higher end shoes. Those are worth it. The $45 I saved on the CrossCourt series was a painful and time consuming lesson.
I love the way these look and were my summer 2019 go-to shoes...However, by the end of the summer, they were no longer able to be used. Since they're leather they don't breath well and can cause some pretty insane odors to emit as you remove your shoes after a long day out. They look amazing, are pretty easy to clean, but if you're prone to sweaty and/or smelly feet, stay away.
I really wanted to like these shoes, but the color bothered me too much to keep them. The uppers are a bright blue-grey white and the soles are an ivory white, and the contrast bugged me. These were really nice leather, and I loved the look overall. Just me being fussy, but there it is.
El calzado es muy pequeño e incomodo., deberían de recomendar comprar medio o un nunero mas grande.,
El diseño esta bien, como lo esperaba. El material de la piel no es tan duradero pero entiendo que es aceptable.
Lo peor y que mas me incomodó fue recibir un calzado que dentro del mismo dice “women’s”., osea, aun el diseño es casi exacto al de la foto el mismo debería ser conforme la descripción del producto, o en su defecto colocar que es unisex y no colocar ningún género dentro del calzado...!
I like the minimalist style. For the price it exceeded my expectations as it’s a well build shoes. I tend to have trouble finding a shoe that will fit well as my feet are a bit wider, however, Cole Haan offers a great option for people with wider footing. We will see how these sneakers pan out.
