A modern, elegant silhouette from Coach, fall 2012. The black “Cary” bootie has piping detail on the rich leather and large tassels decorating the front zipper … a signature detail that sets them apart. A brown stacked wooden 4.5″ heel and .75″ platform adds contrast and lift. The zipper does tend to gradually unzip throughout the day. It could be the placement of the zipper on the front vamp or the tassels could be a tad too large or heavy. A slight annoyance, yes. But that aside, these shoes are comfortable, polished and compliments abound.
