About Kate’s Gianvito Rossi pumps:
Gianvito Rossi’s signature pumps come in a range of heel heights, including 105mm, 100mm and 85mm. We believe Kate wears the 105mm size.
Gianvito Rossi makes the shoes in Italy using fine suede leather. Each shoe is handmade. They feature an elegant pointed toe and a slim heel.
The designer calls the 105 style his “iconic signature pump” and believes the shoe’s shape makes it “timeless”.

The Duchess has taken a liking to Gianvito Rossi’s shoes, she now owns at least ten pairs!
In addition to the five pairs we’ve listed above, Kate owns the designer’s D’Orsay sandals in black suede (pictured below), the Sisley sandals in black suede and the Gianvito 85 pumps in both praline and dark olive.
About Gianvito Rossi:
Gianvito Rossi learnt his craft from his father, the highly renowned shoe designer Sergio Rossi. In 2007, Gianvito debuted his first collection in Milan. The collection was highly acclaimed. Ten years later and Rossi continues to create stylish, sophisticated and timeless shoes loved by celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker. Rossi is known as a perfectionist when it comes to fit and comfort. He believes he’s engineered the perfect stiletto – mathematically balanced, with refined proportions and neither too high nor too pointy.
Rossi is a stickler for quality, even though his shoes sell for the same – or sometimes less – than other equally elevated brands. Producing still from his own factory, he would rather concentrate on impeccable craftsmanship than bling.
