I personally have a really hard time trying to find shoes that fit me. When I found these Cole Haan shoes at Nordstrom, I was really excited. They fit perfectly and the leather is really soft. They're extremely comfortable - I walked in them around New York City for a weekend. The only negative so far is that the bottoms are scuffed from walking so much, though that is to be expected from all the walking I did in them. These are the perfect staple that will surely last.
