Cole Haan Loafers, Moccasins, Oxford Shoes Review: Dress, Sport, Casual; Venetian, Grant, Pinch

Updated on January 9, 2015

Cole Haan Loafers

Cole Haan's loafers and moccasins department of men's shoes offers over a hundred designs in the familiar slip-on architecture (as opposed to the laced Oxford shoe) and in a range of casual, dress, corporate, and even sport models. Taking into consideration the range of height and the contours of the footwear, the selection all in all effectively addresses both winter and summer season, though boots and above mention Oxford categories will cover the feet more assuredly in rainy weather.

In terms of decoration, Cole Haan deploy various buckles, straps, laces, tassels, weaves, and other elements that often determine, or at least complement the character of the shoe – be it driver, boat, or all-purpose. Depending on the ornamental detail and the material texture (all kinds of leather and rubber), a pair of Cole Haans will display a solid, clean, formal appearance suitable for a business occasion, or a relaxed, leisurely design usually associated with vacation and pleasure.

Some of the collections on offer include Venetian, Aiden Classic, Grant, Penny, and others – almost all featuring the iconic Nike Air technology. Let's take a closer look:

  • Air Adams, Colton Venetian, Lorenzo: elongated, smooth casual to casual corporate design that projects supreme confidence and determination (laced Oxford shoes usually allow more subtlety) – a very powerful, classic template.

  • Air Aiden is closer to familiar moccasin layout, equipped with a metallic buckle strap and a stocky short heel to add some weight and gravitas to the essentially leisurely modeling. Anticipates Bryce and Penny lines.

  • Air Grant (Penny, Loafer) recreates an iconic moccasins structure, enhancing it with boat and driver shoe characteristics, outfitting it with black, brown, or light brown leather, capping it all with a low, summer cut.

  • Pinch Penny, Buckle, Tassel shoes present casual corporate patterns, more or less fancy, depending on the decorative detail, that stand somewhere between serious Venetian and the breezy Grant in terms of occasion.

  • Vertner, Neroli, Winslow, Marcello Monk loafers that can be viewed as semi-boots, so tall and enclosed they are – as one would expect from a Monk boot – all featuring the trademark buckle strap, dual or single. Cole Haan embellishes this footwear segment with winged and cap toes instead of the moccasin weave.
