Kate Loves: Shoes - Part 2

In Kate Loves Shoes: Part 1 we looked at Kate's fabulous collection of pumps and formal shoes the Duchess generally selects for engagements and formal occasions. Today we're looking at Kate's highly coveted collection of wedges, boots, casual footwear and much more. Let's begin with Kate's Stuart Weitzman Minx Wedges.


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.

Aquatalia

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.

TOPSTAR/Really Wild

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.

UK Scouting Twitter Feed/Orvis

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.

London Sole

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.

Adidas

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.

Mint Velvet

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".

UK In Malaysia Twitter Feed

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 :)

  4. I love the almond shape of the wedding shoes and the same with the pied a terre wedges. Overall she has a great collection, the only ones I can´t stand are those Corkswoon....especially with sporty outfits during the Olympics.
    And I had to laugh a bit to the Angelsey shop assistent remark..surprised? so casually?And what she expected, Kate entering the door in Jimmy Choose Sandals?
    Thanks for another great post Charlotte, always is nice to refresh memories, especially in the time of withdrawal.

  5. Hello Charlotte, thank you for another great post! I have to say that I'm in love with Kate's wedding shoes (mine were red-laced but not so beautiful!)
    While looking at Kate pictures during the Canada Tour, I can't help myself thinking how skinny she was at this period... I hope it won't be the same now that baby George is here. Wait & see!

    1. I thought exactly the same about that picture from Canada...I even thought it looked photoshopped but maybe we are not used to seeing her so skinny anymore...

    2. It really is crazy to look back at the photos right before or right after her wedding and see how frail she looked. I'm so relieved she has a healthier figure now - it probably means she is less stressed by the spotlight, and it's also a better example for young girls who might look up to her for body image purposes.

  7. My favourites are, definetely, all the knee high boots she has, either with high heels or flat. I love to wear high boots with skirts or dresses. And I really, really love those Really Wild Seville Boots :)

    I must say that, at first, I didn't like very much the Wellington boots, but I understand that they are essential in a country where it rains a lot. I think they kind of grew on me and I like them much better now :)

    Needless to say that the ballet flat shoes are also a favourite of mine: super chic.

    Have a nice weekend!

  8. I love, love, love the wedding shoes! Thank you for sharing a picture of them. Also, loving the Rhumba boots! I covet them but can't justify the price as I wouldn't be able to wear them very often.

  9. I have been looking for a pair of boots like Kate's Russell and Bromley Charge boots. They no longer sell that style in suede. I have a hard time finding lower heal boots (I'm 5' 11") that don't gape at the top. I need a narrow calf. Does anyone have any suggestions? Most of the suggestions I have found online are no longer available. I would appreciate any help. Thanks..

    1. Katy Marie, I'm selling a pair of Stuart Weitzman Zipkin black suede boots in size US 11 (they fit more like US 10.5). You see Kate wearing them in the picture with a red dress. These boots are more stunning in person than they are in the pictures. I think they'd work great.for you because they have narrow calf. I can't wear them for that reason, but I'd love to sell them to someone who would love them & wear them a lot. You can contact me directly: victoriastyle777@gmail.com. Looking forward to hear from you, Victoria.

  17. I saw the wedding shoes at BP, too, and they were exquisite. As was the dress, and the veil, and the cake...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wonderful post, Charlotte! I had never seen the wedding shoes until now (actually had no idea whatsoever what she had worn) and they are beautiful! I am not a lacy gal at all, but undoubtedly, these must be amazing to see in person.

    My favorite shoes are the Aquatalia boots, esp. the Rhumba ones. Why do I always like the most expensive shoes, ones that I could never afford? ;-)

    A question for all of you ladies: I love the idea of wearing ballet flats though I don't own a pair. I would worry that they wouldn't be supportive and have the right padding. But what is the attraction of toe cleavage? I spent quite some time on the London Sole Web site and the shoe descriptions talk about degrees of toe cleavage. I have a narrow foot and many of the London Sole styles are supposedly appropriate for my hard-to-fit width, but I don't know that I like the toe cleavage thing. Please enlighten me!

    Replies
    1. Toe cleavage can make a shoe more flattering or "sexy" even, particularly if a woman has nice, narrower foot.

      As for support, you really have to try them on. It's been my experience that not all flats are created equal. I happen to love Anne Klein shoes because of the quality and comfort.

    2. Thank you for the information, royalfan!

      Hmmm, I have long toes, so there might be more cleavage showing than anyone would want to see!

  20. *I forgot to ask this too: what is the difference between the Henrietta and Pirouette styles? The descriptions are almost identical!

    Charlotte, which style do you own?

    Rachel from Arizona

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello Rachel,

      I own the Henrietta's and I've heard they're a little more roomy than the Pirouette but both styles are lovely. They come in so many tempting colours :)

      Delete
    2. Hi Charlotte! Pardon the extra question, but is the extra roominess in the Henriettas in the width or the length of the shoe? I have very skinny and long feet, so a narrow width with more room for my toes would be ideal.

      I love your posts about the shoes because I have been trying to venture out and wear different styles than my usual and because of this blog and following Catherine's fashion, I bought my first pair of wedges ever and I love them! I can't wear the traditional high heel, so wedges give me the confidence that I can walk in comfort and without tripping. Now I need to buy my first pair of suede boots (but at a price I can afford, lol).

      Rachel

      Delete
    3. Hello Rachel,

      I believe the difference is in width, London Sole have a very interesting size chart accompanying their shoes which I found very helpful.

      There's been a lot of interest in Repli-Kating Kate's boots, I've been meaning to bring back the Repli-Kate section and now seems like a good time :)

  21. The shoes are a size 39 - not sure where 5 1/2 came from.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. size UK 39 is approximately a US size 9. A EU size 39 runs slightly larger. Also, the brand shoes she is wearing area higher end and run narrower. You'll notice the thickness of the sole of the boots. Nike has begun collaboration with some shoe companies whereby their athletic insole is added to the boot for added comfort and support on the ball of the foot.

  24. For the shoes... is that in US sizing?

  25. Charlotte, this entire site is so well put together and informative. I absolutely love the Pied A Terre 'Imperia' wedges. Wedges are a great way to give a mum a lift (both literally and figuratively). When you wear wedges, you feel secure enough to carry around baby and fashionable and comfortable when taking baby for a stroll or doing errands.
    I'd like to add that I especially enjoyed seeing your posts re: Kate's post-natal dresses. It was very inspiring. While maternity clothing has had a revolution (thank goodness!) over the past decade or so, I feel that personally nursing/post-natal clothing choices have somehow failed to evolve, with a few exceptions (Isabella Oliver comes to mind). I love that the Duchess is wearing Seraphine maternity dresses (which of course transition well to mainstay wardrobe). I think it many moms will feel a sense of relief to see that Kate is still wearing maternity wear even after the birth. Because pregnancy does not end with the birth, that's for sure! This early post-natal transition time can be emotionally and physically discouraging even to the most well-adjusted and confident women. I've been inspired to order two of the Seraphine dresses to boost my frumpy nursing wardrobe, and I am looking forward to receiving the first soon. Ever since 'mummy tummy', Kate has been a shining example to other mothers with her choice not to hide or conceal the fact that she is transitioning naturally, taking her time, as it should be, and also still maintaining her style and charm!

  26. What is Kate's shoe size? In America, 5 1/2 is really small, which is surprising since she's so tall! Is the British system different?

    Hmmmmm comfort is the name of the game for me,since I'm an oldy. The Really Wild Suede boots are my favorite but I would go with black. I love the boat shoes. I have a pair but wish mine had tiny more bit of color. The Plimsolls speak comfort for walking around at the school I work and casuel cuteness.

    As for the wedding shoes "divine"
    oh I so miss the pumps.

    The Addidas shoes look perfect for comfort and a very reasonable price, need to save my quarters.
    Still love the jungle picture. One of my favorites!
    Thank you Charlotte for the great post. Hope you have a lovely weekend. :)

  28. Kate's style is impeccable. Even when she debuts items that I don't like at first, I find that I would die for them once I get used to them. For instance, the Aquatalia booties -- hated them when she first wore them, but now I have 2 pair and I LOVE them. They are very expensive, but are like wearing slippers, even with the 3" heels after 8 hours at work. I have quite a few of her shoes and always get compliments. They are all very comfortable and well worth the prices. Especially heels, ladies, you know -- it it well worth the comfort to pay a little more for investment shoes.

    I would LOVE to be able to get a pair of Kate's boots as well. Unfortunately for me, I have larger calves, so they won't fit in her styles. The Really Wild Suede Seville Boots in chocolate come in a wide-calf version, but then they are too tall for me :( I wish I had Kate's dainty legs!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm with you, Charlotte - Kate's wedding shoes are *stunning*! I also really like her Pied A Terre "Imperia" wedges and her boot collection.

      If you're crazy, Ruth S, so am I--love the Wellies! I also love the hiking boots (one of my favorite memories of my first trip to Britain involved going on a hike in the Lake District and being told I should have had "boots" and not "those American tennis Things." Ah well, I was a poor student then and the American tennis Things served me just fine, but now I appreciate ankle support when I hike).

      I used to be able to wear heels but cannot anymore, so the flat calf-length boots are to my taste now. And the ballet flats, and the mint plimsoles . . . The heeled boots and Pied a Terre wedges are pretty, but I don't really care for the clunky look of the Weitzmann wedges.

      Of course the wedding shoes are beyond anything, gorgeous!

  32. I don't think it's 5 1/2. In a pic of her shoes the size is 39. Maybe she meant 9 1/2 or maybe the British sizing is different.

    According to a chart I found online a 5 1/2 shoe is a 8 1/2 US. I agree with most no more wedges! I heard also that men voted them the ugliest shoe women wear. Again, I would give up chocolate (and have to!) to see her closets.

    I like all of Kate's shoes and boots with the exception of the ankle boots. I just think they appear to shorten the leg in an odd way.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the wedding shoes; hate the clunky platform wedges. Wish Kate would wear smooth leather, as opposed to her affection for suede, which is so much easier to ruin in inclement weather. Bad choice, methinks, as working shoes, particularly for outdoor events. Oh-I also very much like London Soles, when worn with jeans or slacks. Perhaps its my age, but I really do think that wearing pumps with jeans is ridiculous.

  37. Hi! It's the first time I write anything at all here, but I always follow your comments and I like this blog very much. I love shoes, and if I had more money I'd buy lots and lots of them. I'm getting to love the Aquatalia boots, and the idea of having real waterproof high heels boots, but I'm afraid of spending so much (it's really a crazy sum for me) without even trying them on. Unfortunately I couldn't fine retailers in Italy, but I'll be in the US two months in autumn, and I was wondering ... maybe it will be easier to find them there? anybody from the US can give me advice?

    1. Nordstrom has them and you can go in an try them. I bought my aquatalia booties from online store 6PM. I read the reviews and ordered a half size larger. I actually bought two pair - booties similar to Kate's and another pair of bootie that comes below the ankle. Love them both. I paid $189 for the kate look booties and $89 for the other pair. I happened to catch them in my size on clearance just after christmas. This brand runs narrow and the boot is narrow on the calf. Zappos.com also carries them and I think there is free shipping and returns. Good luck and enjoy your visit to the USA

      Personally I think if it's what they want then great they should do it. I love a good wedding and it would be lovely for Bea & Eugenie I'm sure.

      It would be interesting what Sarah would do in a streamlined RF as I read somewhere that her commercial side is what prompted the divorce in the first place.

      I fear it's a quiet time as the Royals are all on holiday etc. and it's a topic to fill column inches...only time will tell.

      Julie, they live like a married couple, so I wouldn't be surprised. I don't think it will happen until after Prince Phillip is gone. He's definitely not a fan of Fergie. I guess we'll see! I wonder what it will be like at Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie's weddings? I know they aren't engaged yet, but it will eventually come. Sarah will have to sit by or with the Royal family. Wonder how that will work?

    I would LOVE to have Kate's shoe collection, especially the boots. :-) I LOVE the Realy Wild Seville boots. Her pictures taken in 2004 at Blenheim Palace have always been some of my favorites. Also a big fan of her London Sole flats. I posted a while back, but I think I am going to treat myself to some. They looks so comfy and I would wear them all the time. My favorite...the wedding shoes. They are simply exquisite. I wonder how long they took to make? Absolutely beautiful. I was sad not to see them at BP, but was very pregnant with my 4th at the time. My dr said no to overseas travel. Boo.

    I love that Kate can go casual or dressy and always look lovely. Missing seeing her, but I know September 12 is around the corner. Thanks for the fun post!
