These are my go to business dress shoes. I have had about a dozen pairs over the past few years (my feet sweat, so I rotate daily wear) and while the sole and footbed will eventually wear out as with all leather-soled shoes, they are supremely comfortable, lightweight and versatile. Through Zappos, they are inexpensive enough to simply replace rather than have re-soled after a couple years, and they break in quickly. Get a good set of shoe trees and they will last for a long time.

After reading lots of positive reviews, I purchased a pair of Caldwells shortly before moving to Hong Kong in July. When the shoes arrived, they were stiff and very shiny, and as I walked around in my house I noticed the leather near the toe cap did not bend very well. I assumed the shoes merely needed to be broken in, so I decided to keep them. After three months of wearing the shoes two or three days a week, the toe cap issue has gone from bad to worse. There are deep, noticeable cracks around the area where my toes bend, and pieces of the brown finish on the shoe have started to fall off. No amount of polishing will fix this problem, as the super shiny finish I noticed the day I received the shoes is nothing more than a cheap surface treatment. The leather - if it can even be called that - is absolute junk, and the shoes are still incredibly stiff. I would not recommend this shoe to anybody, and I am looking for a replacement. This review is not meant to be a negative reflection on the customer service I received from Zappos. On the contrary, I could not be happier with the ordering, delivery, and return processes. I wasn't sure of my size when I ordered the Caldwells, so I purchased two pairs and selected standard shipping. Zappos automatically bumped me up to overnight shipping, and I received the items the next day. Returning the second pair of shoes was simple and hassle free, and I got my refund within a few days.

My favorite dress shoes for business! These are built to LAST! Friends ask me about them since they look so sharp and I love bragging that they are the BEST money I ever spent on shoes. If you wear nice suits and don't have quality shoes like these Cole Haan's, you're missing the mark! Shoes make the look complete and bad shoes rob that first or on going professional positive impression. They shine up to an amazing luster with leather shoe cream or polish. They are comfortable and I love the 2EE sizing with my wide feet. Had protective Goodyear tread added to the leather bottoms by local Shoesmith and they may outlive me!!! Speedy service from Zappos keeps me coming back again and again! Now, to talk my wife into more pairs of these... Thank you, Zappos and Cole Haan!

If you need a pair of shoes for a one-time deal or wear dress shoes so infrequently that you do not want to spend a lot of money, then these can be fine. Contrary to what others have said, I do not find the soles stiff at all. In fact, after wearing a pair of these in semi-regular rotation for about two years, the soles are almost worn through at the ball of my foot - not very thick. If you are going to be wearing them infrequently, you will want to invest in shoe trees to help keep the toe creases down (to be addressed below). The finish on them is very smooth, shiny, and easily takes a polish; just a little work with some shoe polish and a buffing rag/brush and that high-gloss shine is back. But the bad: - Shoes develop wear folds where your foot bends just behind the toes. This happens and is unavoidable with any shoes made of leather. These, however, develop a sharp crease in addition to the regular folds/bends/lines that normally appear. The finish (as an earlier commenter has said) is cheap and contributes to this creasing. - I think that the above bad thing is made worse by the quality of "leather" used. I put that in quotation marks, because I am not certain that this is not in fact a vinyl. If it is leather, it is the equivalent of leather veneer. The interior of the shoe is lined with what appears to be some sort of foam. I do believe that this is fused to the leather facing. The ease with which the leather creases and flexes now that my pair are very broken in, leads me to believe that this cannot be top grain, corrected, or any other solid leather. If it is leather, it is a thin sheet of it bonded to some non-leather substrate. Leather just does not feel like these do when you push on them. - The sole is fine. It is not super thick and will wear through, but it is not the worst. Treat it right (i.e., steer clear of the winter salt and water puddles) and it'll be alright -- not great, but alright). - The toe box on mine (in front of the cap toe line) have not buckled, dented, or creased (unlike nearly every pair of Johnson & Murphys that I have had). They will not take a stomping or having your whole closet piled on top of them, but they are not looking for an excuse to deform or anything. I generally take pretty good care of shoes (overshoes in winter, waxing relatively regularly, using cedar shoe trees to dry/wick moisture/hold shape). If you are going to kick these off when you walk in the door and let them lie wherever until you need "nice" shoes again, these will show evidence of the mistreatment. Overall for what these cost at the moment, you can do a lot better. If you are just looking for fine-looking conservative dress shoes and do not care about quality, then these are actually not that bad. But, seriously, get the shoe trees.

I really liked these shoes. However, they are made out of cheap material since after 3 months of wearing them I had holes under both shoes. They were extremely comfortable but alas my search for the perfect shoe continues.

So first I have to say that I do not write reviews often, but felt this was necessary. I have had these shoes for about 6 months, wearing them 2-3 days a week at most. When I first received them I was very pleased. They are beautiful shoes and seemed well made. They were not too tough to break in, although the leather sole was quite slippery at first but that is to be expected with this kind of sole. However, I recently noticed that the finish has started to peel on the shoe at the vamp, where the shoe creases at the toes. I understand that this can happen if you do not take care of your shoes, but I regularly clean them and get them polished. With shoes of this "quality" it should not be happening after 6 months of half time wear. Also, the outsole on the same shoe that is peeling has pulled away from the welt. That should DEFINITELY not be happening. Overall, I am very disappointed with these shoes. I expected better from Cole Haan and from Zappos. The service on this site is amazing and I have never experienced quality issues with shoes on here before, but this has caused some concern for me. I would definitely not recommend this shoe to anyone.

I originally bought a pair in black and loved them so much I bough a pair in burgundy. The black ones are great, but I am about to exchange my second pair of burgundy because the leather cracks where the shoe bends at the toe knuckles. The replacement pair I am currently about to exchange cracked within one week! This is unacceptable and hopefully not a sign of future quality problems with Cole Haan. On the up side, Zappos has been great to work with and will continue to get my footwear business.
