Why did my post get removed?. Many people overemphasize the care needs of a good pair of shoes. It looks as nice with dark slim jeans, as well as it does with a typical business suit, and it is a comfortable shoe. You're imputing some opinion about their neon shoes to their entire line. Basically, if it's not a deal, discussion, or review don't post it. Visit for more information regarding guides, stores, and tailoring help. This is because leather is very durable, and while it might get discolored or creased, it won't just start falling apart suddenly.
Consider using their Smile program to have a portion of your purchase benefit a charity of your choice! Even well maintained, those will all start breaking down, and when they do there's nothing you can do about it. And if you think their leather feels plastic, then you must have been touching knockoffs. No one is forcing you to only buy their weird colored shoes. I am a bit of a shoe whore, this is the 27th pair of shoes from Cole Haan. What types of posts are allowed? Unlike a well-made leather shoe that ages well, mall-tier dress shoes look like crap with age. I own a few pairs and, while they aren't the top leather, they feel very soft and smooth.
So I suggest that before you drop money on a quality pair of shoes, make sure you have proper shoe trees preferably cedar and split-toed , proper polish in the correct color, and conditioner, I personally use saphir renovateur. I really like double monks. They make a wide range of shoes for a wide range of people. You can't tell me that's bad leather, bad construction or bad design. They aren't bad shoes, they're just badly priced.
Instead of creasing smoothly and conforming to your foot, cheap leather forms fine crease lines and even cracks. To ignore all their more mainstream shoes and only focus on the bright colored shoes is an absurd way to look at the brand. I agree on the retail prices of Cole Haan's being out of wack. If you have questions, message the mods. Wore a pair of the woodberry wingtips last night walking all over town.
Bad leather, bad construction, bad designs. If I'm staring at your Cole Haans it's because I want to rip them off you and set them on fire. You should check out the retail prices for cole Hanns, they rival allen Edmonds on sale or even go higher without giving the benefit of a full grain leather shoe or a Goodyear welted construction. They do make some decent shoes, but unless you get them on a deep discount, the value you get out of them isn't very good. When messaging the mods please include the url of the removed post.

They were recently bought out by Nike and their quality has taken a significant dip as a result of the manufacturing changes that followed. You can find them on sale on ebay all the times, or or on any shoe site. We poll the rules from time to time. Cole Haans, however, have synthetics, cardboard, cloth, glue and foam throughout. This reduces the shoes to a one-time use item, once you wear-out the soles they aren't good for much else. After contacting their customer service, I was told to take them back to the store and see if I can get a refund there or deal with it.
This is a great shoe to add to your arsenal if you take care of it, it will last for years. They have lots of clean classic designs. Many of the designs, like the bright colored soles, are just terrible. Happy savings, the real savings of a quality pair of shoes is half a decade later when you just have to replace the sole and you get to keep your storied upper leather. On top of the lower quality leathers and poor construction quality. I have a pair that I wear on rainy days.
Resources: + Shopping on Amazon? It's a classic looking shoe. I clearly said the neon designs are only some of what they do, but I don't think any of their designs are very inspired. It may be to other people and these posts achieve nothing while adding zero value to the subreddit. On that shoe, the stitching draws the eye but not in a good way. Sure, you're not paying that much total, but relative to other shoes you're buying trash. On sale, Cole Haan's aren't bad. Now, not all Cole Haans are made this way some have stitching making the soles more easily replaced and durable and they do sell styles that are more traditional.
