Kate Middleton's court shoes are taking the world by storm and unsurprisingly, they're selling like hotcakes. Here's where to get yours and how best to wear them, because as the weather cools down these gray shoes will heat up your look in no time!


Kate Middleton's court shoes accented her stylish gray ensemble and fans of the stylish royal can't get over her footwear. This says a lot as usually it's Kate Middleton's dresses that get the most attention!

The Duchess stepped out to visit the University College London’s Centre for Longitudinal Studies, where she met with leading early years researchers. Her visit was in order to learn about a new nationally representative birth cohort study launching in England, 'The Children of the 2020s', which will track the holistic development of children from the age of nine months up to five years.

The classic shoes are in the must-have shade of gray that's not only creeping into our homes but our wardrobes too and go perfectly with her Zara dress.

A past season offering from Zara, the dress incorporates both flowy sleeves and a pussy-boy neckline which are much-loved style staples of the Duchess.

Although the gray pointed Hugo Boss court shoes look box-fresh, these are in fact an old favorite of the Duchess' shoe collection.

In November 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge wore the gorgeous pair to an event at the Natural History Museum in London.
