L.K. Bennett Shoes-A Royal Favorite

The more research I do about the shoes that royal women wear the more I see L.K. Bennett shoes come up again and again. I became curious about this brand because royal women seem to favor it but I can never find them in any store near where I live. After searching and reading reviews of the brand I have come to the conclusion that the reason why royal women love this brand so much is because L.K. Bennett shoes are more comfortable than other brands with softer insoles so they don’t hurt your knees as much if you wear them for a long time. Royal women have to wear high heels and stand on their feet for hours as they greet crowds of people so it is imperative for them to choose comfortable shoes.

Probably the most famous royal patron of L.K. Bennet shoes would be Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge who favors simple black or nude patent leather platform court shoes.

She even wore her favorite taupe/nude L.K. pumps to visit a mosque.

This season L.K. Bennett has designed pumps in the same platform court shoe style in this pretty Mulberry suede. This color is very appropriate for fall and I hope to see Kate wearing these.

They also made the same style of shoe in a beautiful lace. Considering how much Kate likes her lace I could imagine her wearing these.

Kate also has a soft spot for wedges, reportedly much to the Queen’s dismay. 🙂 She even wore sandal wedges while running on the beach in Australia, which must have been pretty difficult to pull off. Here she is the day after her wedding wearing a favorite pair of L.K. wedges.

Because of the time of year I managed to find some L.K. Bennett sandal wedges on sale!

Here are the “Maggie” wedges in black patent leather with a peep toe.

And the “Priya” wedge in a pretty bright red. What girl doesn’t love red shoes?

Kate also likes simple black patent leather sledge pumps. She wears these all the time.

But for this season I really love these quilted sledges because it adds a little texture and detailing to the shoes. It’s a nice way to wear classic black pumps with a twist.

Kate tends to wear the same black or nude L.K.s over and over again. While her black or nude pumps are a classic choice, I think that Kate plays it safe with her fashion choices more and more with each passing year. Ideally, I would like to see Kate experiment a little bit with a different style of shoe or maybe more color.

Here are some lovely pointy toe pumps in a bright color that is very in this season.

And these pretty ‘florete’ pumps. I like colorful shoes and bags. 🙂

And since Kate seems to favor neutral colors, maybe she could wear something like these black and white cutaway suede pumps? I know I would. They’re sexy but still classy.

Or maybe these “Inferna” pumps? I love the pattern.

Or maybe…just maybe…she could really try something different and wear these gorgeous printed floret pumps. I’m in love with them. And they can be worn many times because they could really go with dresses/coats of many different colors. I would love it if she wore something like this to spice up her outfits a bit. Princess Victoria of Sweden wears colorful shoes like this.

You can find them right here in case you wanted to do some early Christmas shopping OR if you wanted to treat yourself. Ladies should do that every once in a while, right?
