First impressions mean a lot — and any entrepreneur knows the first mark you make is through your physical appearance. Whether you’re about to make a pitch to a boardroom full of investors or need to attend a networking cocktail hour, it can feel nearly impossible to focus if you’re wearing the wrong pair of shoes. While your best pair of dressy shoes can be visually impressive, they’re probably incredibly painful to wear for long periods of time. And usually, your everyday shoes aren’t the ones you want to wear to the holiday party. 

Luckily, there are shoemakers that are able to confidently stride the line between formal and smart casual — and Cole Haan makes classic, high-quality shoes that are perfect for any situation an entrepreneur might find themselves in. See our favorite picks for both men’s and women’s shoes for both formal and business casual settings — even better, they’re all currently on sale, so you can snag a pair (or two) for a steal.
