Cole Haan Marta Review
Here’s an interesting fact about Cole Haan. Since the early days of the company’s inception, Cole Haan sold mostly men’s shoes. It was sometimes later in Cole Haan’s established growth that the company transferred in the making and selling of other types of shoes. Women’s dresses, men’s formal attire, accessories like handbags, belts, scarves, sunglasses, and hats were later introduced.
But the Cole Haan Company is one of the oldest and the most respected in the United States. Especially on the east coast of the country, where the headquarters is located. Founded in 1928, by the two friends, Eddie Haan, and Trafton Cole, Cole Haan is a derivate of the founder’s last names. Catchy isn’t it?
Today the company has stores in more than 70 countries around the world and makes endorsements with the best of the best. The best tennis players like Maria Sharapova and the best ballet dancers like Meghan Fairchild.
But for now, let’s look at the Marta model by Cole Haan. A classic pump with delicate clean lines that will become an asset in your shoe closet. Let’s take a closer look at the pros and the cons of the Martha model. Hope you’ll like it.
Yes, in the revered Cole Haan shoemaking style and technology, even the outsole has a special cushioning. In this case, this is a type of responsive cushioning, and what it does to the foot; it lets the cushioning to rebound. By allowing rebound, the cushioning gives back plenty of that energy that you waste by simply walking in the shoes. Thanks to this type of cushioning your feel will feel rested and will stay rested until the moment that you take of the shoes. Oh, and let’s not forget that a two and a half inches high heel, a stiletto heel of that sits on the back of the outsole. It’s a fairly small heal, but a thin and stiletto styled none the less.
It’s the lining in that midsole, and especially in the sock liner that will give you an extra set of comfort, by having your feet dry and odor-free at all times. However, the height of the heel was taken into consideration when the sock lining was made. The padding is not that excessive, and you’ll be able to feel that padding with each and every step. Your feet will be well taken care of.
The leather in all its glory dominates with the clean lines of the upper and makes you feel confident, strong. It shows you a timeless effortless style that is well equipped to stand the test of time, with a small nod to the past. The pointy toe style of the silhouette is slightly reminiscent of the retro shoes of the ’80s. With the low stiletto heel in the back and pointy toe at the front. The kind of shoes that Michelle Pfeiffer would have worn in the Fabulous Baker boys movie. Simple and elegant without drawing too much attention to the bottom of your body. If you have a statement dress or a statement necklace that needs to be shown off to the world, the Marta model by Cole Haan will become the perfect vehicle for that. The model isn’t ostentatious, and the luxurious feel of the leather makes it a lot more rich and fabulous.
Among the three separate features in this technology, the responsive cushioning is truly the piece of work. The insole, however, has a sock lining that’s not only made out of synthetic material, it’s also lightly padded to help with the comfort but form different area of the pump. And when you have a slip-on style of a pump with a heel that 2 and a half inches in height, every bit helps. So, both the cushioning in the outsole and the padding in the insole are responsible for the comfort, and you really shouldn’t worry about this. It’s a non-issue.
The outsole is highly impressive and it should be treated as such. The support that the outsole has to offer is fantastic, and given the fact that the 2 and a half inch kitten heel is located beneath the outsole, it serves as a great protector and supporter to your feet. Think about it. A kitten heel and a stylish slip-on style of the silhouette? And nothing else for the feet to grab on to, but the sheer presence of the leather upper? You best believe that the outsole will do most of the heavy lifting, and will provide most of the support.
