Everyone gushed over Duchess Kate’s dress at Wimbledon on Sunday (July 14), and of course, it was gorgeous. The blue crepe Emilia Wickstead number was perfectly complemented by Prince William, who wore a matching baby blue shirt and cornflower blue tie.
But the company behind Kate’s choice of heels was nearly missed. It turns out she had a little bit of Canada with her at the tennis championships!
The Duchess of Cambridge was sporting Aldo Nicholes heels at the men’s singles final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, and she had them on while handing the championship trophy to Novak and the runner-up plate to Roger.
The shoes are suede block heels with an ankle strap, and Kate was wearing them in “bone” colour. Getting them is also pretty easy, since they retail for $85 on Aldo’s website and you can also pick them up at your local Aldo store.
Kate is known for her love of Canadian designers and has helped shine a light on some of the best fashion has to offer here since she married William in 2011. One of her go-to brands includes Erdem, which she wore on her first royal tour of Canada in 2011. Just this past May, she also wore an Erdem dress at the opening of her Back to Nature garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Aldo is sure to receive a major sales bump from “The Kate Effect”!
