About Cole Haan
Born more than a century ago at the intersection of form and function, Cole Haan has been innovating ever since founder Trafton Cole started making resoleable shoes during the depression. After being bought by Nike in 1988, Cole Haan began introducing footwear with built-in air chambers, utilizing Nike's cutting edge technology to make everything from women's heels to wingtips more comfortable than they'd ever been. Today, the NYC-based brand takes its inspiration from the streets of New York City, offering a range of classic staples with their signature twist—from outerwear and handbags to heels and weekenders—that can stand up to the rigors of the city and still look good.
Latest Cole Haan Reviews
Sorry folks, but styled correctly this is NOT a grandma shoe. If they were a solid color I'd have to say yes but the blue with bright blue sole and black with yellow sole are clearly fun with a little edge - and with a cute outfit that isn't "old lady" they are totally updated. I should mention that with the purple the sole contrast isn't very obvious and makes that one a little granny - same with the brown. As for comfort they are CRAZY CUSHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They do run a touch narrow. I'm an 8.5-9 and had to go with a 9 for the bit of extra width it afforded.

Man, these shoes are sharp! As soon as I slipped them on, I knew I could confidently recycle the box, because they were obvious keepers. Soft, supple nubuck-type leather, good support, perfect fit. The wingtip style gives a solid menswear appeal, while the flexible white sole and white laces make them sporty and cute. The color is a real hot-tomato red, striking and bold with an otherwise all black-and-white outfit. I need all my shoes to look good and work well in an office environment, walking, riding a bike, and standing all day at a computer. Gramercy is my first-ever pair of Cole Haans, and if it's typical of the brand, I will definitely be back for more. A note on fit: I wear an 11 Medium in most shoes (usually a 42 in Euro sizing), but I have a high instep, and many styles that fit me in length and width are too tight across the top for me. The 11M in this shoe fits perfectly, including over the instep--and that's with the laces pulled up snugly. Customers with a lower instep might find this style a bit gappy on top.

A very comfortable shoe. My only complaint is that the toe portion gets worn quickly, but I think this is a trait of all shoes of this type. The shoes work well for business casual occasions or even with a suit. I ordered a wide shoe as opposed to medium width! I usually wear medium width but I needed wide in this shoe.
