I contemplated buying the Irelands in black when I purchased the Noels the other week, but chickened out because of the height. I couldn't stop thinking about them days after, so I called around NY COACH stores to see if they had any in my size (Columbus Circle, where I purchased the Noels didn't have any in my size). I called around all day last Thursday and I faced long phone waits at each store, only for each one of them to tell me they didn't have them in my size. When I called 44th Street, she asked me, why don't you do a phone order with us? It'll ship very quickly. I agreed, but I had to go, so I told my mother to do it. They arrived today, and I eagerly opened the box. Turns out, my mom ordered the wrong size, a 9 1/2! I wear 9. I was so irritated because I had been so excited. I called the last store on my list, before I prepared to send them back, the Soho store. Turns out the had a pair in my size! I ran down there today and exchanged the shoes. They are very cute and comfortable. Here they are on the COACH website: http://www.coach.com/content/product.aspx?product_no=9167&category_id=159 I'll post pics with my feet in them, tomorrow: I'm too exhausted right now.
