The Find: A Comfortable Heel for Work

Feb 21, 2023

Several years ago, when I was walking the marble halls of Congress, I bought a pair of Cole Haan pumps.  They were spectacular — simple, comfortable — the perfect shoe for the office.  When they finally gave out, I was heartbroken.

I tried to replace them many times, but the Cole Haan brand had changed.  The shoes weren’t as well made or as comfortable.  It was a disappointment.  So imagine my surprise when I tried on a pair a few weeks ago and discovered that the brand had risen from the ashes like a phoenix.

These Vandam Pointed Toe Pumps are the perfect work heel.  The cushioned footbed makes walking a breeze.  The 3.75″ heel is a bit higher than I usually wear, but with such a well made shoe, I hardly notice the additional three-quarters of an inch.

The brand has several more styles to choose from.  I love these leopard slingbacks for spring.  If you need a flat, these Vanessa points give you a little bit of lift with all of the comfort of a heel-free shoe.  Have a summer wedding coming?  These knotted sandals are the way to go.

    Do you think these would work with a bunion?

    I remember fondly my Cole Haan with Nike technology pumps that I wore to death in the 2007-2012 time frame. When the few pairs I had finally wore out I found the same thing, that the brand was just not that well made anymore. I used to go for the higher heels because that cushioning made them comfortable, even for walking around DC. You’ve inspired me to try Cole Haan again.
