The Duchess wore them earlier in the year too. In May 2017, she wore them to visit a farm in Gloucestershire, England.
Before that, she wore the boots on two Royal Tours in 2016. First, during a three-hour trek up a Himalayan mountain in Bhutan and then later, for a visit to the remote island of Bella Bella in Canada.
Kate first wore the brown boots in 2004. (Image below right: courtesy of Penelope Chilvers).
When you have two photos of Kate taken over a decade apart, and she’s wearing the same boots, you know they must be good quality! Penelope Chilvers acknowledged this on her website. She wrote:
“Penelope is delighted to see Kate wearing her Long Tassel boots eleven years later. As with so many of our boots they just get better with age.”
About Kate’s Penelope Chilvers Boots:
Kate’s Penelope Chilvers Boots are made from Spanish vegetable-dyed leather. Kate wears the colour ‘conker brown’.
The boots have a feminine appeal due to a special design feature: they’re cut close to the ankle. This gives them the sleek and elegant silhouette. In addition, the boots feature a scalloped detail near the zip, and of course, the hanging tassels. The boots are fully lined with leather and they feature a Goodyear Welted Commando rubber sole.
Where to buy Kate’s brown boots:
At the time of writing (Nov 2017), there are three different sized boots in the designer’s Tassel Boot Collection. There’s the long size (worn by Kate), which come in three different colours: black, seaweed and conker:
There’s also a mid-calf size and a cropped size. They come in a range of different colours too, including nut, seaweed and black/slate grey:
