Spring 2010 shoes: Coach Stefanie platform is gorgeous and easy to walk in

Coach is better known for bags than shoes. But every year the company comes out with a great line of spring platform shoes and sandals. Two years ago I bought a pair of strappy platform shoes but I need to replace them. I looked around in department stores and shoe boutiques, and concluded that these are my favorite pair. It is called the Stefanie platform and it costs $188. Although the heel looks dramatic, it is easy to walk it because of the platform. The difference in height between your heel and the ball of your foot is minimized. The hell is 4.5 inches (11.43 cm); the platform is 1 inch (2.54 cm).

You can wear these shoes with a mini- or maxi dress or jeans.
