What brands of wedges does Kate Middleton wear?
At the moment, Kate's wedge shoe of choice is the Casteñer Carina espadrille. She added this to her shoe collection in 2019. She's worn the brown jute-heeled wedges to seven public engagements over the last two summers. Most recently, she wore the rope-heeled espadrilles during an official visit to The Bahamas (in March 2022).
For a long time, Kate's go-to wedges were the Minx and Corkswoon styles by Stuart Weitzman. She wore both pairs frequently from 2012-2015, racking up around 20 sightings over the three years. Stuart Weitzman might be one of Kate's favourite brands: she owns many of their sandals, boots and bags too.
Before marrying Prince William (and for a year or two after), Kate wore two pairs of Imperia slingback wedges by Pied-A-Terre (now absorbed into the Dune London brand) in black and cream/white. She wore them to go shopping in London, on public engagements undertaking charity work, while watching polo matches and when touring countries overseas.
Finally, the taupe Fleur espadrilles from Monsoon deserve a mention too. Kate wore these wedges pretty frequently between 2016 and 2019. The Fleur's accessible price point made the rope-heeled shoes a huge hit with fans.
