What are Kate Middleton’s favorite shoes

What are Kate Middleton’s favorite shoes?

Boots, pumps, ballerinas … Vogue analyzes the shoe collection of Kate Middleton.

Kate Middleton’s shoes did not appear in the portraits made for her fortieth birthday by Paolo Roversi, but we can

imagine that to accompany her three custom Alexander McQueen dresses, she had chosen a pair of Gianvito Rossi 105.

These pointy-toed pumps with high heels and a lightly padded insole have become a favorite of the Duchess. But as

royal style watchers will confirm, this silhouette is far from the one displayed by Kate Middleton at her debut in

the royal family. Back in pictures on its evolution shoes.

Let’s remember her nude patent LK Bennett pumps, very Ladies Day at Ascot. Kate Middleton was as attached to her

shoes as she was to her curling iron, but luckily only her signature blowout has stood the test of time. Since then,

Kate Middleton has replaced those flashy heels with sleeker suede options; the round-toe pairs with pointy ones,

and the wedges with simple leather soles.

Different designers

In addition to the Gianvito Rossi, a safe bet that the duchess has in several colors and several heel heights, Kate

Middleton is also particularly fond of the Romy pumps by Jimmy Choo (of which she has, among other models, a festive

and rhinestone version) and some elegant pairs from the house of Prada. The small thick heels from Emmy London have

recently joined her closet, while Rupert Sanderson has long provided her with shoes perfectly suited to her royal

function. She regularly wore Manolo Blahnik BB pumps before they became a favorite of her sister-in-law, the Duchess

of Sussex.

Another sure thing

When it comes to boots, the Duchess’ choices reveal her taste for nature and outdoor activities. A fan of Penelope

Chilvers, she regularly wears brown wellies that double as chic rain boots (she even bought a pair for Princess

Charlotte), though they are only seen on the most rustic of royal occasions. Recently, the Duchess was spotted

in trendy Ralph Lauren and Saint Laurent thigh-high boots, elegantly worn with her usual dresses.

A more sportswear side

The Duchess’ sneaker collection confirms that she understands not only what looks best on her, but what will

stand the test of time. While Nike’s VaporMax showed a more sportswear side of Kate Middleton, and her Marks

& Spencer sneakers highlighted her simplicity, Kate Middleton ended up returning to her first loves, Supergas

and Vejas. These affordable white canvas sneakers highlight the Duchess’ eco-friendly approach and confirm the

image of a Kate Middleton who is increasingly comfortable with her style.

long time, she puts on her wedge espadrilles as soon as the summer heat hits. And she is not the only

one to be part of the Castañer fan club: Grace Kelly, Lauren Bacall, Alexa Chung, and Penélope Cruz have

all succumbed to the comfort of her canvas and jute shoes.

The shoes we’d like the Duchess to add to her collection? The ballerinas she wore when she was younger, as

she slowly acclimated to her new status. If Kate Middleton had a predilection for those of the French Sole

brand, the timeless models of Repetto, made famous by Brigitte Bardot and Kate Moss, would bring a chic touch

to her skinny jeans that, unlike the LK Bennett pumps, have not yet been put in the closet. One thing at

a time. sarkropigen1972 The Duchess in her Castañer wedges and an Erdem floral dress, in 2022.
