The Duchess of Cambridge put L.K.Bennett's Sledge high heel pumps on the map when she wore them in 2011, cementing their status as her go-to-shoes. It's no wonder Kate favoured the versatile pair until 2014 – they're durable, polished and comfortable enough to wear for a full day of engagements on your feet! While the iconic hue is the classic nude, the brand has expanded their offerings for spring. In addition to a classic black, the sleek $460 stilettos with platform are now available in a dusty rose shade and a very appropriate royal blue.
The shoes hit headlines when the wife of Prince William wore them on a visit to a mosque in 2012 - and took them off as a mark of respect before she entered. Since then, the mother of Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, has worn a variety of high heels from the luxury high street brand and also has carried several clutch bags.
The pregnant Duchess loves designer shoes and is often pictured wearing her favourite high heel suede pumps by Jimmy Choo. However – she also enjoys high street stamps and on 3 July 2017, the sister-in-law of Prince Harry wore a monochrome polka-dot dress by Italian designer label Dolce & Gabbana to Wimbledon and added a pair of black strappy sandals by Office. The block heels featured a skinny ankle strap and retailed at a purse-friendly £62. They became a huge hit and sold out almost as soon as the sister of Pippa Middleton stepped out in them.
