Conventional wisdom says you should never skimp on items that come between you and the ground, like tires, mattresses, and shoes. But that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of great sales, like when Cole Haan takes an extra 40% off sale items via coupon code "EXTRA40" through November 11.
That's tied as the best extra discount we've seen from Cole Haan this year, which means you can pick up some quality footwear without breaking the bank. Shipping adds $5, but orders of $150 or more bag free shipping. (Orders over $250 bag free 2-day shipping.) Some exclusions may apply, and many items are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged.
We've rounded up 10 pairs of shoes to keep you comfortable and chic.
