My Favorite Shoes from the Coach Legacy Collection

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

One of the very first designers I splurged my pennies on was Coach. Over the years, their designs have evolved and my tastes have shifted, but I keep thinking back to (and hunting on eBay for) the original, classic leather bags from the past that made the brand iconic.

This year, Coach is paying homage to that history with the Legacy collection – a modern collection inspired by iconic styles from their archives. The main material in this line is glove-tanned leather, and it comes in basic neutrals as well as four punchy colors (carnelian, sunflower, emerald, and cobalt). As someone who’s trying to move away from logos and towards quality items that stand on their own, I am very excited to see Coach revisit their heritage of making simple leather goods.

That approach carries over to other accessories as well. In addition to bags, the Legacy collection has shoes featuring the same quality leather and details. I was asked to choose my three favorite pairs from this line to share:

From left to right: Sondra bootie, Sue heel, Zoee heel

My top picks span a variety of designs and material types. The smooth leather Sondra bootie is a cold-weather basic, perfect for pairing with a textured mini and opaque tights. The neutral Sue heel can help tone down busy prints, while staying interesting with snake-embossed leather. Last but not least, the Zoee emerald suede pump provides a splash of color on dreary winter days, and the low heel lends to easy walking. My style must’ve gotten rather predictable, as my boyfriend clicked on over to the website and quickly guessed my picks. What can I say…I’m a sucker for classic styles with small updates.

Readers – What was your first item from Coach (if applicable)? What are your thoughts on their latest Legacy collection?
