Get Kate’s style: LK Bennett Sledge – a great alternative!

Kate Middleton's nude court shoes by LK Bennett

Kate Middleton started a HUGE trend with her nude court shoes!  Many people, both in and out of the public eye, copied Kate and purchased a pair of nude pumps for themselves.  Remember Mike & Zara’s wedding?   Members of the Royal Family and celebrity guests alike turned up wearing nude court shoes, some wearing the L.K. Bennett Sledge (For example Princess Beatrice) and others wearing a similar nude colour, but by a different designer.

Learn ALL about the L.K. Bennett nude heels on this page. I have even tested the shoes myself and written a review of them for you!

At almost £200, the L.K. Bennett Sledge is not a viable shoe option for most of us, that’s why we’ve come up with some alternatives that are so good, we’re terming them ‘RepliKates.’

  1. There are some close-ish examples here at Piper Lime for your American readers (of which I am not one, btw). Am totally OBSESSED with finding a suitable imitation (or the real thing, which would be even better!) here in New Zealand. Any suggestions?

    • Sorry, finding them from outside UK is difficult. I tend to only check for US as well as UK as those are the two countries I get the most requests for and I know the stores fairly well. NZ – no idea!

      However, there are plenty of UK stores that ship to NZ – including most of the ones I’ve listed, Dorothy Perkins & Debenhams for example.

  2. I found two similar alternatives to the L.K. Bennett pump that Kate wears. One is made by ELLE and there are carried in the US by a store called Kohls. They are approximately $60 US (£45) but they do not ship internationally. The other is made by BCBG and can be bought at They run $89 US (£67) and they do ship internationally.

    • Do you know if the shoes your are talking about are just as comfortable as the sledge? I meet hurt in a lot of shoes and need them to be well made but mostly comfortable. Any ideas?

  3. Does anyone know if there are any mid-heeled nude patent heels under £50?

  4. Just in case there are any Dutch readers out here, I found a quite acceptable cheap alternative (for me at least). They’re EUR 33,50 at Nelly:

  5. Nine West has almost exact pair : “ROCHA”. $79

  6. They’re at Target for $29.99 now! :)

  7. Love these shoes there tooo gorgeous can’t fing them anywer been looking for ages :'(

  8. Kate Roberts says:

    My Light Taupe Sledges just arrived at my doorstep two days ago. They’re a perfect fit and really comfortable, and shopping and getting them shipped out was a breeze. Thank heavens they finally stocked up on my size after a year of waiting!

  9. I found the Nine West Rocha is a pretty darn close comparison, and when they’re on sale they’re very affordable!

  10. There are nude pumps available at Walmart for under $20!

    • Yes, but they will not last. It is always best to spend a bit more when buying a shoe that you want to use as a wardrobe staple.

  11. have some decent nude patent heels. They ship internationally.

  12. I bought the Nine West Regola last year and I love them! They look almost exactly like the Sledge and cost $79. I got the Tortora patent leather color. I don’t wear heels too often, so I’m not a good judge on whether heels are comfy or not, but they look fantastic!
