Cole Haan is known for remixing the classics, infusing its dress shoes with the comfort and technology found in men’s sneakers. But the brand’s success today was largely influenced by its storied years of making traditional dress shoes. From Oxfords to brogues, Cole Haan’s iconic dress styles shine everywhere from conservative offices to the trendy streets of SoHo, and it doesn’t get much more legendary than the Pinch Tassel Loafer.

Cole Haan’s cult-classic Pinch Tassel Loafer is on sale for as low as $70 on Amazon—up to a 56% discount on the normal $160 price. These shoes have earned over 2,700 five-star ratings from shoppers who say they’re “perfect” for work, weddings, and even for weekend nights out. They’re available in black and burgundy in sizes ranging from 6 to 16 with options for narrow, wide, and extra-wide widths. The final price is determined by the color and size combination, but most are still around 40% off.

These loafers feature the same moccasin stitching as a penny loafer, but there’s a leather tassel on top of the strap instead of the traditional slot. It’s a slightly dressier take on this type of shoe while still maintaining the casual preppy appeal that made loafers so popular in the first place. The leather upper is adorned with a glossy, shiny finish, while the leather lining and the midsole are cushioned for comfort. The outsole is leather, providing a very traditional look, but the heel has a rubber cap for improved traction.

Many appreciate the consistency that these tassel loafers offer year after year, including one shopper who called them “old reliable,” and said, “It is a classic and my go-to shoe. I have replaced it twice now and I get a couple of years out of each pair.” Another shopper agreed, saying, “This product works today as it has for more years than I care to count.”

Shoppers also appreciated the versatility of the shoes. “I’ve been a very loyal Cole Haan/Johnston & Murphy fan for the past 25 years,” a shopper attested. “These are among my very favorites—versatile and clean, they match well with day or night functions.” Another shopper who’s been buying them for years said that the “style goes with anything from a suit to jeans.”

If you’re looking for a shoe that can go toe-to-toe with both sneakers and dress shoes, Cole Haan’s Pinch Tassel Loafer is a surprisingly versatile option. Now as low as $70, they offer an affordable way to try this preppy staple, but you’ll have to grab your size quickly in order to take advantage of the current deal.
