Kate Middleton owns a pair of brown combat boots from See by Chloé.
Let’s take a closer look:
Kate’s worn the brown lace-up boots to eleven/twelve official royal visits (there’s some discrepancy on how engagements are counted! Kate wore them twice on the same day, to two different engagements with slightly different outfits!)
We last saw Kate in the boots in December 2023, in a video showing the Princess volunteering at a baby bank with her three children.
About The See By Chloé Combat Boots:
This robust yet stylish boots have a distinct utilitarian chic vibe. They are crafted from a rich brown suede material, which gives them a luxurious feel. The boots feature a lace-up design with gold-tone metal eyelets adding a touch of elegance to the sturdy construction. The thick, layered sole has a contrasting light brown leather detail which provides an interesting visual break and enhances the boot’s rugged appeal. The outsole appears to be made of a durable rubber with a deep tread pattern, suggesting good traction and practicality for outdoor wear.
The design is finished with a pull tab at the back, aiding in ease of wear. This type of boot could easily be incorporated into a casual, outdoorsy wardrobe while still maintaining a sense of high-end fashion flair.
Sadly, you can no longer buy this exact style…
The See by Chloé boots are from a past season and the brand no longer stock the style. You could always take a peek at their current season collection instead. They have a few lace-up styles you might like.
Alternatively, I’ve hunted down another pair that’ll help you copy Kate’s style:
Here are two great alternatives!
Whether you’re traversing city streets or country paths, I’ve found two pairs of combat boots that are your ticket to nailing Kate’s coveted look with aplomb.
First up, the Strokestown style by Dubarry. A perfect alternative to the sought-after See by Chloe pair that flew off the shelves:
I think they echo the same sartorial spirit with their lace-up fronts and metallic eyelets. The robust silhouette, accented by a contrasting sole, offers both resilience and refinement. They come in walnut brown or black.
Ideal for those who cherish the blend of luxury and practicality, these Dubarry boots promise to elevate your outdoor ensemble with an effortlessly chic flair that mirrors the charm of the See by Chloe originals.

Next, the Heidi style from Barbour. These exquisite ankle boots are an impeccable choice for those who missed out on the coveted See by Chloe pair.
These boots are designed with a refined dark brown leather, enhanced by detailed stitching that adds a touch of sophistication. The adjustable strap with a buckle around the ankle offers a nod to equestrian elegance, while the lace-up front and gold-tone eyelets maintain that urban edge.
With a sturdy sole that promises durability and comfort, these boots don’t just emulate the style of their See by Chloe counterparts; they set a new standard for chic, versatile footwear.
Kate Middleton wearing See by Chloé:
While See by Chloé isn’t one of Kate’s go-to labels, we have seen her wear the brand once before. She wore a dress from the company’s Fall 2016 line. It was cream-coloured with long sleeves and a fit and flare silhouette. Pictures and more details on this page.
