A part of its Fall 2016 range, the latest COACH sneakers add to the American luxury brand's quickly growing footwear offerings.

Emulating a Nike high-top silhouette, COACH's version imbues the masculine model with a surplus of lavish additions. Most prominently, this includes the premium leather that constructs the upper. Complementing it is clean stitching in a light beige tone and decorative leather weaving that appears near the heel of the COACH sneakers.

Topping it off are brown laces that tie in seamlessly to the tone of the rest of the upper. Meanwhile, all this sits atop a thick platform sole that contrasts the colorway in white. With a nod to New York's hip hop past, the COACH sneakers have a retro look that's simultaneously subtle.
