There’s more to Kate Middleton’s shoe collection than just nude pumps. Black ankle boots, classic sneakers, and block-heel sandals are all present and accounted for, but you probably won’t find most of the current crop of controversial shoe trends: flip-flops, clunky sport sandals, and high platforms, to name a few. But there is one controversial shoe trend that’s actually royalty approved, and that’s wedge heels (which have had a history of quickly going out of style in the past).
We’ve been covering the wedge shoe trend a lot lately, especially since celebs like Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston have been wearing it, and everyone seems to have an opinion about it (including the Queen, who is rumored to not be a fan of the style). All of this said, Middleton did choose to wear the most classic of wedge shoes: espadrilles, which are also a French-girl favorite. Middleton wore the nude-colored shoes with a ruffled midi dress for a visit to a photography workshop for kids in England, and they gave the dress much more of a boho feel than her signature nude pumps would have, and it was perfectly appropriate for the occasion.
Last but not least, we’d be remiss not to point out that Meghan Markle is also an espadrilles fan and Middleton just wore the style to a garden event in May. See what we mean by royalty approved? Scroll on the shop the classic yet controversial trend for yourself.
