Things I Love: Cole Haan Heels

I'm sad to report that my favorite heels (EVER!) are probably on their last legs.  I have gotten these sweeties resoled and buffed and rehealed for the last time.  Also sadly, I cannot find a picture online for you as I bought them several years ago.  They looked something like these (same color, height, general shape):
Cole Haan Miranda Pump
Only they interestingly have a bit more detailing.  Very subtle (somewhat "stippled" and vaguely remniscent of the leather detailing on cowboy boots).  I love it.  I wish I could find the exact same pair again.  Of course, meanwhile, I am pretty sorely tempted by these Miranda pumps.  On sale!  With Nike Air Technology!

Also, I just had to share these.  Which I found while searching for neutralish light brown pumps to replace the beloved pair.  You don't need to tell me that these are not at all a replacement pair for my brown pumps.  But, ohmygosh, aren't they gorgeous?  Don't they just remind you that spring is coming?!
Cole Haan Peeptoes
And finally, I just recently abandoned gave to my good friend who happens to have perfect size 7 feet a pair of beautiful gold sandal heals.  I'd only worn them once.  They look a lot like these:
Cole Haan Sandals
Only, sadly, they were too big on me.  And lacking the Nike Air Technology (or any comfort technology as best as I could tell), so that by the end of the pre-ceremony cocktail hour at the one and only wedding I wore them to (note, I didn't even get through the ceremony, much less the evening, without ridiculous foot circulation being cut off and my heals slip sliding left and right so that there was no way I could dance without leaving the shoes under our dinner table), my feet were KILLING me.  Lucky friend of mine was the winner of that poor purchasing decision by me (how oh how did I think that size 7s fit in the store?!) and I am left lusting after these gorgeous ones which are far prettier, certain to be more comfortable, but yes, sadly, correspondingly more expensive.  Hmmm... Math Man and I have been invited to a wedding in April, perhaps these will go on sale by then?  (fingers crossed)

Once again I find myself wishing that I had one of those magic money trees.  (and yes, if I did, I would spend my money in responsible ways, pay off those pesky student loans and donate to all sorts of good causes first, and then I'd buy myself the shoe wardrobe of my dreams)

p.s. This isn't at all the first time I've lusted after a pair of Cole Haan heels.  See here.


  1. I love the Cole Haan Nike air shoes! I have a pair of flats and they're a dream to walk in. Definitely one of my favorite pairs. I wish I had one of those magic money trees as well. What a great life that would be!

  2. I love them too, well priced and comfortable! Hope you have a wonderful valentine's day! Now following you.
    Thanks for hopping by my blog!

  3. Those green peeptoes are gorgeous and they look really comfortable. I find that a platform of some sort greatly increases my comfort levels in heels, which is sadly uncommon on sandals. Great post, and thanks so much for following my blog and entering my giveaway! Feel free to tell your friends about it too!


Thanks for your thoughts!
