Comfortable Shoes for Teachers | Round Three: Cobb Hill
Cobb Hill is to New Balance as apple is to apple tree, or some similar analogy that makes more sense. Think of Cobb Hill shoes as stylish flats, loafers, pumps and boots with the comfort technologies of New Balance built in. Find a retailer near you to try on a pair!

Cobb Hill Bethany–a customer favorite from last fall that’s back again for another season. A back zipper allows for easy-on without having to fuss with the laces.
