MaineLady: Re the Cole Haan site, they have an Outlet page you have to click on to get their most discounted pieces. And Zappos has past season merchandise on sale as well. It’s of course off season and hit or miss, so not great for in season purchases like this, but I like the hunt.

I love these! I find the hybrid gives me the extra cushioning I need with the refinement I crave. Have many Cole Haan oxfords (add insoles) and see why they appeal to you. Enjoy!

Thanks, everyone. I'm high fiving those who have the hybrids too....or are thinking of getting them

Shout out to Laura and cat2 for getting me back into wearing Cole Haan footwear. See below - WINNERS! The brand works for my feet.

An excellent pick that you will be tempted to duplicate imho! Feel free to add a picture of you wearing them with the suit any time !

I will show you the shoes in an outfit, asap

yay! excellent! love the gold. I just recently got a new pair of Cole Haan white leather/leopard sneakers, now im ready for fall.
I have an older pair of the Cole Haan shiny gold loafers--so comfy, and Im ready to put them back into rotation.

Might need to get one of those cute new hybrids, since I can hardly wear any "hard sole" shoes any more. its hard to go back from really comfy sneakers and padded insoles, and I don't really have any reason to!

Yay for finding a brand that works for your feet! Preppy with just the perfect amount of cute.

Very pretty shoes but Jo steals the show. She is SOOO adorable.

I love this look. They will be fab with your suit.
Jo stole the show, though, you know? Cute little assistant!

Oh my gosh! Those are so great!!!
