Our beloved Manhattan ballets are getting a chic makeover in beautiful metallics as well as a new crop of colorful patent, nappa leather and suede varieties.
A street-smart update to the sartorial icon, the elasticized topline provides a comfortably snug fit, while a padded insole and bendable rubber outsole make them feel as good as they look.
So I bought the new version today in store - the Manhattan.
It's clear that the leather is not the same quality they've had in the past. I doubt these shoes will last as long or maintain as well. If these flats don't work out, I will look for another brand besides Cole Haan to attach my loyalty, though I won't discard shopping them altogether. I'll just be more picky about their inventory. I want to find what I had before. The old flats had inspired me to buy another four pairs of other cole haan shoes, but I haven't been as impressed with them either. It's just nice finding a good brand you can rely on and not have to worry when you order online.
about these flats on the web (from professional journalists, photographers and travellers)...I had to locate these shoes!
They are just as wonderful as I had hoped-have worn them several times so far on long walks, and they did not disappoint. The flats are very soft and comfortable,
while the interior padding provides nice support. They look great with skinny jeans and leggings, and the fit is true to size. They will be making a trip to Europe with me at the end of the month, and will definitely be put to the test--am confident they will pass with flying colors.
They don't seem to require any breaking in (i walked a couple miles in them on the first day) - they don't run across the big toe joint or cut in at the achilles like some ballet flats. The sole looks like it will last. Very happy!

I literally tried them on for 3 seconds and fell in LOVE. The leather is super soft with memory foam leather insole. It feels like walking on clouds. The fit is beyond perfection! If your feet are narrow I would go 1/2 size down. But for me - I went with my true size.
I own over 50 pairs of designer flats and not one can hold a candle to these.
Extremely highly recommended!
