Kate added a new pair of shoes to her wardrobe in 2019: the Gianvito Rossi Piper 85 style in black suede. The Duchess wore the shoes seven times between March and November. She wore the black pointed heels twice again in January 2020.
The Piper pumps feature an 85mm (3.3”) block heel and a severely pointed toe. Like all shoes by Gianvito Rossi, the Piper is made in Italy.
It’s easy to see why Gianvito Rossi’s ‘Piper’ pumps are a firm favorite of the Duchess of Cambridge. They’re made from supple suede and have a sharply pointed toe and sturdy block heel. Wear yours with tonal suiting.NET-A-PORTER

Kate Middleton wearing Gianvito Rossi shoes

About Gianvito Rossi
Gianvito Rossi is the son of the renowned Italian shoemaker, Sergio Rossi. Gianvito is known for his stylish, sophisticated and timeless designs.
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.– Telegraph Fashion.
