Just a quick post to share that Cole Haan’s semi-annual event is going on now (use code FALLEVENT), with 30% off site-wide and free shipping and returns! They make some beautiful shoes that are also comfortable, which is always a bonus. Below are my top suggestions, and I’d love to hear your favorites too!
– If you missed out on my Marina OTK boots in past years, they are fully in-stock in both colors and are at a significant discount with this promo. Read my fit review and see more pictures of how they look over jeans, leggings and bare legs! They’re one of the best-fitting boots I own for narrow calves, and very flattering on the legs. I finally caved and got the “stormcloud” gray to join my black pair! Compared to my Stuart Weitzman boots, these are shorter in the shaft height with a slender heel instead of block. The foot area runs on the narrow side, so perhaps go half size up if you’re usually between sizes or have issues with narrow shoes.
– Cole Haan also makes a classic, knee-high Narelle tall boot and ankle Narelle bootie, both in the same stretch suede materials and colors as the Marina style. I haven’t tried these on myself, but on the website, there’s helpful detailed shaft height and width measurements for each shoe size listed at the bottom of the item page.
– One of their most classic ankle booties that comes back year after year is the block-heeled Hayes bootie, which comes in both a zippered version and a gore stretch panel version for slipping on and off. Happy weekend and happy shopping!
