These shoes are top quality. The Nike Air insoles are very comfortable right out of the box. They come in a fancy drawstring bag within the normal box -- nice touch. Split toe looks good for business casual, or a suit and tie. The smooth bottom also use these for ballroom dancing. Shoes like this are hard to find at this price.

Thin, stiff leather. No arch support. Shoe not up to Cole Haan's usual standard. Overpriced.

These shoes are great. I bought them for my son, and they are true to size and very comfortable. My son has issues with his ankles and needs support in his shoes. These have terrific inner soles with an arch. He loves the way they look and feel.

Great shoe! I bought these for my husband to wear with suits and he loves them. I worried at first about the burgundy color but it is beautiful.

Great shoe. Got 10.5 EE. I was concerned about whether they'd be wide enough (I usually get EEE), but they were great. I can't believe there aren't more shoes in this color - so much better looking than standard browns.

They fit great, no break in needed. They do squeak, not sure what that's about. They look great - the burgundy is so dark that when I opened the package I thought they were black at first.

My Cole Haan shoes are great. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable.\r\n\r\nThe entire Zappos buying experience was refreshing and easy compared to going to 5 stores and not finding what I wanted in my size.\r\n

These shoes are great. True to fit, shiny and super comfortable with the Nike Air system. I had never owned a pair of Cole Haans, but I am a fan now. I would definitely buy again. These are great shoes. Style and comfort, what more can you ask for.

I actually needed a wide in this shoe and Zappos was prepared to help me, but I decided to keep the shoe, and it has been working out well so far. Overall it is a comfortable shoe.

Although these shoes are a bit more expensive than what I am used to paying for shoes, I think the extra cost was well worth it. The shoes are very well made and comfortable. I usually wear a 4E width shoe and although this shoe is just "wide", it does fit well. The finish on the shoes is not "shiny", but it is very nicely polished--looks great. I can\'t think of anything negative to say about these shoes.

These shoes are so comfortable! The Nike Air really makes a huge difference. When I'm on my feet all day, I really can notice the difference between these and other shoes in that my feet just don't feel as tired. My heels are never sore as they sometimes are in other shoes. Definitely would recommend the Cole Haan Nike Air shoes. The leather is so soft and seems to be of excellent quality. For the comfort and quality, I would say worth the price. Hoping to have these for several years to come!

Definitely took a while to break in. I bought a pair of Air Carter Cap Toes at the same time, which fit like a glove after a couple of days. These still aren't that comfortable after a few weeks. The feel good, but not fantastic like the cap toes.

Felt tight at first for an EE. So broked them in by sraying a 50/50 water/isopropyl alcohol mixture and wearing them with thick socks. Excellent cushioning and very comfortable.

Nice shoes overall. \r\nVery true to size. High shine and work well with both business casual and business formal attire. Could be used with a tux potentially. Comfortable all around and can be worn the whole day without fatigue.

I usually wear an 11 wide and these shoes feel about a 1/2 size small to me. Other than that, the shoes are very comfortable. The Nike air technology provides a lot of cushioning and the make the shoe much more comfortable compared to other leather soled shoes.

Shiny! This shoe is shiny! It looks like it belongs underneath a Marine in full dress. Shoe is pretty comfortable (although a little sharp at the top of the heel) and appears very well made.

They way too big to be a 6 1/2. I know that's my size because I'm wearing pair that fits but needs to be replaced.

The shoes are extremely well made and look sharp. I ordered 11 wide and they are still very very stiff. My feet are bruised from the pinching. The shoe repair man has stretched them twice and they are now wearable without pain. I probably would not buy these shoes again.

Great shoe. Took a little bit to break in but I think that's because of the high quality leather they use. A little stiff, but now that it's broken in I feel like these shoes are going to last a long, long time. I've bought dress shoes from a few other makers but these strike me as the most durable and are classy to boot. If you're looking for a slightly dressy shoe (they're shinier than most) then I recommend these. Oh, and the NIke air cushioning is pretty darned nice. I'm often a little skeptical of stuff like that but I've definitely noticed a difference.

Haven't had a chance to wear them around a lot yet, but one thing to note is that the shoes are very narrow. I have never purchased anything other than regular width shoes, but the D width on these shoes was just painful to wear. I got the EEs and they're far more comfortable.

Great shoe! Definitely requires some patience as it took me a solid week to break them in. Instantly they felt tight when I put them on for the first few times but that disappeared as the leather molded to my foot. The shine on the exterior certainly holds up well. I've never owned a more comfortable shoe, something to do with the Nike air inserts.
