Cole Haan Boots&Booties Review: Leather, Suede, Rubber; Air Petra, Daughtry, Marisol, Vail, Talia, Other

Updated on January 9, 2015

Cole Haan Boots

Cole Haan boots constitute a quintessential department of shoes made for colder seasons – though quite a few of the collections can be worn practically during any kind of weather. The brand offers both women's and men's designs: ladies' segment includes tall, over-the-knee, shearling, lace, and other types of boots, as well as short, weaved, and buckle booties; men's selection, though smaller, provides a broad variety of strap, lace, convertible, and other footwear in this category.

Materials

Cole Haan employ a familiar range of materials – several types of leather (nappa, patent, burnished calfskin, and other), as well as suede, rubber, polyurethane, and nickel and brass (the metals are used for the buckles) – to lend the boots waterproof, comfortable, and aesthetic properties.

While the classic, elegant approach to styling all but secures strong visuals, especially in the solid models that deploy a single material, it is the combo boots – leather&suede, leather&rubber – that present more experimental, riskier, and high-fashion architecture.

Boots and Booties

The majority of women's boots display one of the traditional tall configurations: just below or over-the-knee, high heel or flat, shearling or rain – this kind of footwear keeps the foot, ankle, and calf protected in cold or rainy (or both) climate situation.

Booties offer an important spring and summer alternative, releasing the feet and the finger by removing the shaft, layers of leather, fabric, and introducing the subtly flirtatious peep toe. Let's take a closer look at some of the collections:

Collections

  • Tantivy exhibits a rigid, solid architecture enhanced with buckles reminiscent at once of engineer and saddle boots. Very functional, this collection relies on rubber for the smooth, seamless finish.

  • Air Cassandra is a classic weave bootie (black, brown, beige) that brings to mind baskets and country picnics. Though the 3 ¾ stacked heel hardly renders the shoe suitable for an outside of town stroll, the texture of the leather endows the shoes a strong, expressive character.

  • Jane and Air Daughtry booties recreate an instantly recognizable cowgirl design using lots of leather for a durability and comfort. Features Nike Air technology in the heel. Black, brown, light brown, and beige colors.

  • Air Talia, Kennedy, Josephine, Stephanie pick up where Cassandra left off, taking the collections towards more corporate, formal direction: closed toes, ultra-elegant python-embossed leather or soft suede, and saddle-like metallic straps around the upper. Stephanie arrives with a broader heel.

  • Air Tali Lace (short and shearling) collection goes for semi-military look with a glossy finish (bright red or black) that combines suede, rubber, and patent leather. Air Michelle shearling line deploys the softer oiled vachetta instead of the latter.

  • Cole Haan men's boots segment includes classic Chelsea shoes (elastic gore – Adrian Chelsea, Air Lenox), the massive buckled, oiled calfskin Air Brando, the elegant Air Chukka (winged or neat toe), and such laced and strap designs as Ardennes, The Hague, and Air Liam.
