Cole Haan gives the perennially preppy penny-loafer an update with modern lines and a driving heel.
The perennial preppy favorite gets modern appeal in Cole Haan's Howland loafer. In full-grain leather with a traditional monk strap and penny slot, Howland is offered a contemporary touch by the driving shoe-inspired heel-wrapping rubber sole for premium grip when you put the pedal to the metal. As equally at ease on the road as it is at home, Howland promises sophisticated loafing in any setting.See all Product description

I never know how to answer the arch support question but I did add a gel insert to these about 6 months ago and that seemed to make them even better.
when you walked a lot with it you'll feel ankle pain due to some off balance factor in this shoe I found it inexplicable because I'm not a shoe maker professional myself but only feel the effects of a shoe. I love shoes. I bought a lot of shoes in a year. I know what constitutes a good well made casual shoe.
So, if you're looking for a replacement pair to immediately throw on for the rest of the summer - be wary that these puppies may take some time to break in.
When I purchased these I also purchased a pair of Polo Ralph Lauren Men's Telly Driving Shoe. There is no comparison between the two. The quality of the leather and the fit are the two most obvious differences. I ordered both in my standard size, 11D. The Cole Haan's slide on and off with little effort and both the width and length fit correctly. I noticed some of the other reviews mentioned that they thought they were very narrow. I don't have narrow feet and have had no complaints about the width. As I have worn the Cole Haan's they have broken in very well and now feel almost like a slipper on my feet. The RL's on the other hand were very difficult to get on and off. I am sure if they were broken in more they would have become easier, but who wants to deal with that if you don't have to?
The shoes work well with or without socks. I typically wear them with jeans and an Allen Edmonds Manistee belt in tan. The colors match perfectly and they look great together.
Leave the sneakers at home and give these a try.
