While Kate Middleton wore a custom pair of heels for her royal nuptials, she prefers footwear that’s a bit more street-friendly—wedges! Her pair of choice: L.K. Bennett’s patent leather raffia shoes, which she wore for her dress rehearsal at Westminster Abbey and the day after the wedding to leave Buckingham Palace. In response to the shoes’ popularity, the brand is re-releasing the style, aptly named the “Kate,” and they will be available for £165 (or about $271) at L.K. Bennett stores in June. To find the British brand in the United States, head to Bloomingdale’s or its first and only standalone store in Chicago, which just opened in March of this year. Get your order in now, though, as The Daily Mail reported that there’s already a wait list! In addition to Middleton’s black pair, the wedges will also come in red and blue.
