In July 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) wore a pair of Schutz Dollie sandals to the Natural History Museum in London for an awards ceremony hosted by Art Fund. She paired the peachy pink heeled sandals with a gorgeous off-shoulder white dress.
About the Schutz Dollie sandals:
Schutz’s Dollie sandals have a 4.5 inch heel that is dramatic, but the shoe’s crisscross straps on the front, slim ankle straps and delicate colour stops the shoe looking too bold. The result is an elegant, versatile sandal.
Schutz make the Dollie from smooth nubuck leather. All of Schutz’s sandals are made in Brazil.
Kate wears a peach pink colour. The official colour name is “Clay”.
Where to buy the Schutz Dollie sandal in Clay:
On the day Kate attended the awards ceremony, both ShopBop and The Outnet stocked the Dollie sandals. Each had limited sizes in stock. However, both retailers quickly sold out after photographs of Kate wearing the shoes circulated on social media.
If you love the Schutz Dollie sandals and simply MUST have the Clay colour, as worn by Kate, eBay is your best bet. At the time of writing (July 7th, 2016), there are six listings starting at $250.
Schutz Dollie sandal in other colours:
If you’re happy to buy the sandal in a different colour, a few retailers do have stock left in limited sizes*:
