Where to buy Kate’s Aquatalia Rhumba boots:

In addition, you can buy the Aquatalia “Rumbah” style from a number of retailers.  They’re new for the AW16 season.  Though,  they seem identical to the original Rhumba boot.  On their website, Aquatalia says “our coveted most popular boot is back.”

The Duchess is believed to have purchased her Aquatalia boots from Russell and Bromley in London.  They’ve renamed them from “Rhumba” to “Hi And Dry.”

Aquatalia Rhumba Review:

One of our readers, Bobbi Jo bought the Aquatalia Rhumba boots, after we posted about them on our Facebook page.  Later, she left a comment and told us that she is “obsessed” with them now.  She said: 

“[I] love the boots! I’ve worn them the past two days and they’ve been very comfortable. I walk a lot at work and we get a ton of snow here. The suede does great with water.  I’m usually a size 7.5 and I need a 7 with Aquatalia. But, that didn’t affect me this time because I had ordered the Aquatalia Rae booties before, as a close replacement for the Royal booties. I would definitely recommend their boots and booties”.
