Royal Fashion: Kate Middleton’s Shoe Choices

All eyes are on Kate Middleton, or as I should probably Princess Catherine’s, fashion choices now. Even before she was so famous, she has shown a great sense of classic fashion. Not surprisingly, she has also had some great shoe choices.

The day after her wedding, Kate stepped out in on trend rope-bottom wedges. Wedges are everywhere for spring, especially with rope bottoms. For Kate, the shoes add a pop of spring and lend a slightly more casual air to her outfit. According to, the wedges are LK Bennett Greta Wedges. They are not from this season, so finding your own pair will be difficult.  

It is common to find Kate in classic black pumps, such as those she wore in the official royal engagement photos in November 2010.

 Kate is also known for wearing purple heels, usually with black ensembles. The purple gives a pop of color to the outfit making it look more young and modern. See the top picture for examples. 

Oftentimes, Kate can be found in different styles of boots. In December 2007, she wore flat black boots to add weight and contrast to white lacey ensemble.

YouTube user elijahendtre made a video of pictures of Kate in boots sets to what else but, these boots are made for walking.

Showing she could be casual, Kate stepped out in Ugg boots along with jeans and a t-shirt in May 2007 (Ruderman, n.d.).

Kate has also been pictured wearing sneakers for a walk through the lawn (Danye, 2011). A practical choice.

Kate’s choices seem to reflect her classic but fun fashion sense and down to earth nature. What do you think of her choices?
