However, one thing that did surprise us about Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon 2022 attire was her shoe choice. Where Kate goes, her nude suede court shoes usually follow, but today, Kate decided to mix things up a bit, instead opting for a pair of cream slingback stilettos, complete with a black cap on the rounded toe. Our guess is that Kate Middleton chose the shoes to match the ’40s feel of her dress. What’s more impressive, however, is that she tapped into one of the biggest shoe trends of the year. From Gucci to Chanel and & Other Stories to Arket, slingbacks are integral to every footwear collection this summer. Now, with Kate Middleton’s seal of approval, we’re willing to bet they’ll be the shoes of occasion season.
