India Repli-Kates - Shoe Edition!

India Repli-Kates – Shoe Edition!

amanda leonor contributor






Hello again! By now Kate and William will be tucked away at home snuggling with George and Charlotte. It was a whirlwind week full of iconic imagery that we will remember for years to come. It was such a treat to have so many engagements and adventures to witness from both of them, and the warmth they experienced from both Indian and Bhutanese people radiated from both images and videos.


I absolutely loved so many outfits Kate chose. Her willingness to play with color and pattern has only grown in recent years, but I really loved her shoe choices. So I’ve rounded up a few Kate-inspired items for you to enjoy!


Nude Pointy-Toe Pumps

Also known as The World’s Most Versatile Shoe. As seen on Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 5, and Day 7 of the tour.

Kate has always made great use of nude pumps in her wardrobe and LK Bennett heels are really emblematic of her style – classically beautiful. The pointy-toe are lovely and it helps to elongate the legs and adds helps Kate to add variety from the rounded toe.

    Lovely post!
    I like the almond toe, not the pointed one but she truly has made the nude pump versatile.
    I’m dying to buy strappy heels! They looks so good!

      Thank you Alejandra for such kind words! I love that Kate is having a pointy-toe moment especially with the midi-length of her dresses since it helps counter the shortening effect on her legs. But when it comes to practicality, I agree with you about the almond-toe shape – it’s WAY more comfortable and practical for daily life.
