Coye Nokes makes shoes for the modern woman on the move. And Coye is certainly a woman on the move.

Since her launch in the Fall of 2009, the brand has grown and is now sold in many of the top stores around the world.  Editors love her collection and her styles have been featured in Vogue Italia, InStyle, Marie Claire and Oprah Magazine, among others.

Marcus Lafayette has been actively involved with Coye’s business since before the official launch. Over the course of the past seven years, we have helped her navigate a variety of business matters including sourcing decisions, sales strategy and overall business direction using industry specific knowledge and a variety of deep relationships.

Through her hard work and steely determination, Coye has built a growing business during the worst retail downturn in living memory. Have a look at the result of all this hard work. Her shoes are stunning.
