Spare the Rood
The recent enthusiasm for heritage brands is bringing out the best in just about everyone. Case in point: Cole Haan is getting back to their roots as Chicago cobblers with a smaller label named Cole, Rood, & Haan that focuses more on worn leathers, wooden welting and classic American styles. The Fall/Winter gear (that’s the dark leather shoes in back) should be hitting shops in just a few weeks.
