Love the Cole Haan look
on November 6, 2013
Just ever so slightly smaller than my other Cole Haan 9.5 D's. I have worn Cole Haans for 20 years, and always bought the same size. For my Cordovan tassle loafers, the fit is perfect. For these and the driving shoes I recently bought, just a touch (maybe a quarter of a size) smaller than I'd really like. Not sure if it would be worth going up to a 10. But, if 9.5's are usually perfect, then I would go up a half size with these. Otherwise, you'll get what you expect out of the name.
Another con is the half rubber sole. These have been a problem on previous Cole Haans and required re-sole sooner than expected (the rubber came unglued and then completely separated from the sole). I would prefer all leather soles.
