Kate wore the sandals later in the year too, this time during a Garden Party in Warsaw, Poland.
About the Gianvito Rossi sandals:
The black suede D’orsay style sandals feature a pointed toe, a block heel and an ankle strap with a buckle fastening. The shoes are made in Italy and the heel measures approximately 104mm. Net-A-Porter describes them as a “timeless edition to any well-edited closet.”
If you’d like to copy Kate’s style, the shoes can be purchased from Net-A-Porter.com for $795 USD / £530 GBP.
