I went shopping yesterday and happened by a Cole Haan store. I've got lots of Cole Haan shoes from the 1970s - 1990s, but none more recently made. I love my old CH shoes, especially the Bragano loafers. Looking at CH's offerings yesterday, I was disappointed. I even checked CH's website later and what I saw there isn't any better. <sigh>
Do any of you who've been wearing CH shoes for a very long time also feel they just aren't as nice -- stylistically "cool" -- as they used to be? I'm sure CH's shoes these days are well enough made, but they are just boring looking to me these days, and those that aren't dull have "odd" lines. I was looking for loafers, and admittedly, I have a lot of shoes, so "typical" styles and designs don't strike me all that much. Perhaps that's the issue?
CH's lack of interesting styles isn't that big a deal. Just something I noticed and wondered if others have noticed it too.
All the best.
