Okay so that might be a little stretch but I can't get Phil Knight or Rory to text me back. They both must be driving. I'm going with my version of the story until they hit me back and say otherwise.

$570 after buying it for $98 isn't that bad. Looks like they will have enough money to cover their new stable of players.

Cole Haan'd are the best shoes. Have multiple pairs and hope this sale does not impact the quality. They use Nike insoles, wonder if they will continue this now not being part of Nike branding anymore.

Nike announced they'd be selling Cole Haan over a year ago, long before they brought in Rory.

I'm a Cole Haan fan. Spendy stuff but amazingly classic designs for today people in mind.

How do you know that they didn't have their eye on Rory 2 years ago?
