It seems the Duchess of Cambridge is so much obsessed with one of her pair of shoes that she rarely takes them off her feet. It has been more than 12 times that, the new fashion icon, is seen wearing her LK Bennett nude Sledge Court shoes.
Known as the ‘Queen of Austerity’, Kate Middleton spent most of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration weekend wearing her nude Sledge Court shoes. It remains unclear if she has a single pair of those £185 nude patent courts or has brought a dozen of them when they were first produced in 2009.
Kate was first seen wearing those shoes last year in June to the Epsom Derby and then to Zara Phillip’s wedding, 90th birthday of Prince Philip as well as in a visit to the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.
While Kate was on her tour to the U.S and Canada, she wore her favorite pair of shoes almost six times. During Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebration, Kate chose them not only for the Royal Jubilee pageant but also for the 75 minutes thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Tuesday followed by her appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace and later at a reception.
The ‘safe’ nude Sledge Court shoes have become a trending Kate’s style the same way as her easy smile and classy mane.
Not only does, her four inches high Sledge Courts looks amazing, given the fact how wonderfully Kate wears them, they must be equally comfortable.
Apparently, the versatile shoes does wonder for anyone who wears it since it is easily worn with everything and at the same time it gives a smooth, lengthening effect. It becomes more durable since they are of wipe-clean finish nature.
It was in 2009, when Kate was first drawn to LK Bennett and later to its newest version of Sledge 2, which in contrast to the previous one is made up of patent leather instead of high-shine leather.
LK Bennett’s signature Sledge paved way to worthwhile expansion in the United States, once it became a royal obsession.
Nonetheless, Kate’s patronization of other shoe brands such as Pied a Terre once, Jimmy Coo twice goes a long way since she is one of the most scrutinized women of the contemporary world when it comes to her sense of fashion.
“As a princess of the people, it’s her sartorial duty not to be too flashy or too fashion-y but to send out an accessible and normal through her outfits. And there is nothing more normal than a girl with a favorite pair of shoes”, said Grazia Daily fashion magazine’s Jessica Vince.
