COYE NOKES Footwear Fall/Winter 2013 Pumps, Boots, Flats, Sandals


Moroccan landscape by Inslee Haynes




Midtown, NYC

Architectural lavishness takes many forms---as destinations and their structures-inside and out,  near and far flung- serve as decorative muses for artists and designers.

This year-the exotic colors and shapes of Morocco are the sources for the colors and shapes of Coye Nokes new footwear styles for Fall 2013.

 Nokes...a seasoned professional, crafts wearable boots/shoes for women who lean towards understated luxury---preferring footwear that compliments her outfit-not dominates it. Charming too-she wonderfully interprets that popular destination's older buildings-that allure beholders with its exotic mix of Islamic and African design influences.

 PLUS-new materials for classic C. N. selections.


black, desert, flint and cobalt toned suedes...eye catching Anisa Booties will be available at Piperlime
























FYI: all shoes and boots-whether flats and high heels-have padded footbeds and -for 'taller' styles-hidden platforms. Coye Nokes footwear is made to really be worn in when in a vertical position---as this talent takes comfort seriously---


made beautifully-suede zipper tab,  suede covered heel...
...being an active runner herself---who goes the distance on her feet all day long!!!!


Highlights: For Fall 2013 -but really there were many selections we think are year round suitable...we loved these two toned/color blocked,  solid heeled, ankle ANISA booties ($475)- with  distinctive double ankle metallic leather bands (in gold, bronze or pewter mirror)...





walker friendly-there is an embedded platform heel inside-preserving the elegant-more single sole looking silhouette...vs. chunky, heavy looking platforms

 Open toe-siblings to the above---- Shakira Sandal $395
open toe triple strap 'winter' sandals...wear with hosiery or not...
solid heel done well-sculptural quality to it 
slim silhouette-very solid  heel












Alice Peep Toe $375 


silver glitter-also available in gold glitter (and leopard/black calf hair-pictured below)


 Alice peep toe pumps adds sparkle to any outfit---as versatile as they are-can be worn with cocktail frocks or dressed down with jeans and a tee. Great travel choice too.












every shoe/boot by Coye Nokes has a padded footbed


Cobalt python in a Catherine Flat and Mara Pumps---classic C.N. styles in different materials...



refs the evening slipper-INAS Flat comfy with the ease of a slipper... but with enough foot coverage for colder temps


Catherine Flat in Leopard and Black Calf Hair $385




a fellow Blogger-instagramed this shot---





 Ashley Flat $345 and Mara Pumps $395 in Leopard print---











Mules are easy to wear-our go to when we need a polished shoe and we're too lazy to figure out what  would add to an outfit---these suede ones are great staples...Aisha Mule Pumps-here in Cerise Suede $385


Aisha Mules...






that same profile-the elegant curve of Aisha Mule---in a MIA Peep Toe pump($315)---comes in patent leather too.  


not quite spiked heel-very sturdy...


What would a Fall collection be without boots---and we loved how these equestrian style Sarah Tall Boots-in leather/suede ($625)---have an over the knee look -but the lower back actually accounts for the fact that legs bend when moving... full back zipper is eye catching and allows for easy one/off-a bonus for athletic calves....where those side zippers are tougher to maneuver (imo).


sweeping archways -came to mind with this side view of boots






 A year round option---these open weave leather directly references the distinctive Moroccan mashrabiya screens ...gorgeous (and chic).
Lasercut Leather Aisha Mule Pump $398
Farida Tall Boot-in flint


Farida Tall Boot $625-laser cut leather...


Aisha Mule Pumps-(L-R)...with Malika Bootie-in desert $475
Amani Bootie $495-ideal---the way the booties is cut-so that it ends in a pointy curve on the front of the foot-this lengthens and thereby enhances- the look of the wearer's legs---unlike a lot of booties we try on that we can't wear cause they make our legs look blocky




close-up of Amani Bootie in flint---shows details of how well the footwear is made-tiny gold stub on leather zipper tab


lattice criss-cross straps-on the leather (also in black suede) Jamila Tall Boot $595







Understated usage of hardware-these mini gold studs in geometric patterns---as heel embellishments on RANA Bootie-in suede-$495




lace-ups-Victorian style re-interpreted...LINA Bootie leather/suede $595


Gold stud pattern---also on the Maha Pumps in suede




inside zipper-allows for easy on/off
