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.
1. Very comfortable. I tried on a similar pair in store with the Grand OS tech and it is top notch. Minimal break in period required, if at all. 2. Sizing is as expected. I usually wear 10.5 or 11 depending on the type of shoe and brand and these Cole Haan's in 11 fit great for me. I would suggest per my own experience and as other reviewers have said to go at least a half size bigger to get the right fit. I also have slightly above average width and the medium D fit fine (albeit sizing up a half size probably helps). 3. The colour is slightly darker than in the pictures but still very nice. What you can't see in the pictures very well, however, is that the toe is a significantly darker, contrasting tone than the rest of the shoe. It was not what I expected BUT it has grown on me the more I wear it and it does add a little fancier detailing.
Overall, it's a classy, high quality show that I would recommend to others.
I now have these shoes in black, brown and tan. For the record, I'm a lady, and we get pretty excited by solidly built shoes that are both elegant and super comfortable. You should see the crap they make for us gals. Shoes that pinch, rub and with zero arch support that end up in tatters in a couple of months. These shoes aren't like that and they're officially my go-to work shoe now.
These are really nice cap-toe dress shoes! I found them comfortable right out of the box, and loved the construction that gave support often missing in dress shoes. The sole is relatively thick, which make them a pleasure to walk around. Don't make dressing for work or big events more uncomfortable than it needs to be - put your feet in good shoes - like these!
I got the British tan after seeing them in a department store. The picture here does not look like the color you will receive, they are a little lighter color . The picture makes them look almost red in color, which they are not. They are very comfortable after break in.
