Throughout her time in the public eye, the Duchess of Cambridge has never been too far away from the L.K.Bennett Fern Court Shoes in Nude that have seen her through countless royal engagements. However, it looks like Kate has replaced her nude pumps with a new pair of heels—towering stilettos with three scalloped straps at the ankle, across the foot and over the toes by Prada.
The Duchess first wore these stilettos in black at an event earlier this month at the National History Museum, and she has worn them in a sand colour twice on her Royal Tour of Germany this week. Our editors have always believed that Prada creates the most comfortable high heels, so we applaud her for such a wise choice. Considering she has to spend hours on her feet during these tours, if you can't rely on Miuccia, who can you rely on?
These are a refreshing upgrade—the Prada sandals are more contemporary than her conservative court shoes of yesteryear. Sassy, strappy stilettos like these are making a comeback this year, and they have been highlighted by Net-a-Porter as a key footwear choice for next season.
