A Review of The COACH Honey Bootie

All last week I was styling the Coach Honey Bootie on the blog, taking it from casual days to nights out, and even to the office. It's probably apparent by now that this is one of the most versatile booties out there. From color, to quality, to design, this is the only pair of boots you'll need for the Fall!

The honey bootie comes in two colors & textures on the Coach website, Black Leather (pictured above) and Sahara Suede (a beautiful sand color). I obviously chose the black leather pair and I'm glad I did. The leather is soft, with no break-in period needed, and has wrinkles and crinkles in all the right places. As I had mentioned in a previous post, although the color is black, the true color in real life is actually a dark grey. I prefer the dark grey because it's not as harsh as black and I think dark grey is more versatile. These boots definitely pass the first look, on the surface, quality test. Let's examine the boot more closely.

There's a laser cut design that covers the back half of the bootie, setting it apart from a traditional leather bootie. What I love about Coach is the attention to detail they put into their products. The leather pull on the zipper is definitely one of those added touches that makes all the difference in the world. The leather pulls really elevate the bootie and look almost like tassels or fringe but not quite as overbearing. The chunky wooden heel measures about 3 inches and I think it's the perfect height; it gives you enough boost without entering into the zone of pain. I was able to walk all day on the first day I got these boots without any problems - no blisters, no pain, no rubbing. If you're looking for a Fall bootie that you can count on for comfort and style, look no further.

The last part of this bootie that I wanted to point out is another one of those small details, the red leather lining. It's one of those things where no one else knows but you. No one's ever going to see the inside unless you take your shoes off, but for some reason it just makes you feel good knowing that the inside of your boot was made with just as much care, attention, and detail as the outside. It's comparable to pretty lining on the inside of a purse or wearing pretty underwear, it just makes you feel good. This bootie really has it all, from quality to comfort to design, the Honey Bootie doesn't leave anything out. Whether you're looking to add another pair of boots to your closet or your looking for your go-to Fall shoe, you won't regret picking up the Coach Honey Bootie!
