The 'Minx' have braided leather straps at the ankle, and a cork platform wedge with a 4" heel. Kate wears the Camel Lanaird colourway (they're currently on sale reduced from $395 to $199 at 6pm).

Kate debuted a new pair of wedges by Stuart Weitzman, the Corkswoon when the Olympic Torch Run passed by Buckingham Palace and they became part of her signature London 2012 style, with the Duchess opting to wear them regularly at Olympic events throughout the summer. The cork-wrapped wedge is perfect for those looking for additional height while remaining comfortable. They're available in limited colours and heavily discounted at 6pm.

The Duchess is a big fan of the slingback Pied A Terre 'Imperia' wedges. We know Kate owns at least a couple of pairs in different colours and elected to wear them at St. Mary's hospital most recently. They appear to be a very comfortable shoe, and a practical choice for new mother Kate.

Time for a look at Kate's boots (my personal favourite) and we simply must start with the iconic Aquatalia 'Rhumba' Boots.
The $698 tall stretch boots are undoubtedly Kate's favourite pair. She has worn them on countless occasions; from her first pre-wedding engagements to the couple's recent trip to Scotland and everything in between. The versatile footwear adds a stylish finishing touch to any look.
Kate's ankle boot of choice is also by Aquatalia, the 'Royal' bootie also known as the 'Regal' and 'High and Dry'.
Kate is regularly photographed sporting her Stuart Weitzman Zipkin Boots. The Zipkin feature an inner zip closure, lined interior, rubber sole and a covered cigarette heel.

Below we see Kate out and about in her Really Wild Suede Seville Boots in chocolate. The £295 boots are made in Spain and narrow fit. The Duchess has a long association with Really Wild since she modelled for them back in 2004 at the CLA Game Fair at Blenheim Palace.
On to a much more causal pair of boots - Wellington boots that is. Kate has worn her Le Chameau Vierzonord neoprene-lined wellies for walks on the beach in Anglesey, volunteering with the scouts in the snow and William's football matches.

The £165 boots are described as:
'Mud, sleet, snow, slush, and bitter cold are no problem for the neoprene-lined, natural rubber Wellington boot. Dual density sole provides traction and flexibility for any climate.'
As much as us girls love our heels, I think we'll agree there's nothing better than slipping into a comfy pair of ballet flats and jeans to run errands or go shopping. Kate chooses stylish flats by London Sole / French Sole and owns the Henrietta and Pirouette (also known as the India) styles.
Many of you will recall the Adidas Supernova Glide trainers Kate wore throughout the Olympics. They're available in an array of colours at Adidas for $115, unfortunately not in the red the Duchess wore.
During Kate's pregnancy, she chose a pair of Mint Velvet Plimsolls for everyday wear. I recall they were first mentioned by a shop assistant in an Anglesey supermarket who was surprised to see the Duchess so casually dressed.
Next, we look at a pair of loafers which proved extremely popular during the Canada tour - the Sebago 'Bala' Boat Shoe.
More from the product description:
'Hand-sewn moccasin construction softly styles a full-grain leather boat shoe crafted with a three-quarter stability board for ultimate support and traction.'
For a visit to the rainforest in Borneo where the Duke and Duchess undertook a tour and a spot of tree climbing Kate elected to wear the Brasher Hillmaster GTX boots. Made from full-grain leather with a waterproof lining, the hiking boots have been described as "Britain's most loved walking boot".

Last but certainly not least we take a look at Kate's beautiful wedding shoes.
Kate's exquisite hand-stitched shoes were designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen and are size five-and-a-half. The detailed shoes were barely noticed amidst the excitement of the royal wedding but when they went on display with Kate's wedding dress at Buckingham Palace they attracted huge interest. The lace detailing is another stellar touch and according to those who saw them up close they appear brand new, not surprising as Kate only wore them once.
It has been so much fun taking a closer look at Kate's shoe collection. I expect we'll see the Duchess bringing back many of the styles we looked at for official and unofficial appearances. Share your favourites in the comments section below. My own personal favourite? Those divine wedding shoes of course :)
