Sure, she’s got a closet stocked full of Gianvito Rossis. Plenty of elegant Emmy Londons and lots of leather L.K. Bennetts. But which of Princess Kate’s glamorous sky high stilettos cost the most Crown cash?

Here are 5 of Kate Middleton’s Most Expensive Pairs of High Heels:

1. Aquazzura Love Link 105 Slingback Pumps in Blueberry Grosgrain, Cost $1095

These classic crystal embellished pumps are inspired by the themes of sensuality and seduction. With a flirty slingback, towering 4-inch heel and crystal embellished strap, these romantic pumps are perfect paired with a slinky slip or silky mini dress.

Featuring a heart shaped embellished chain strap, the princess has worn the sizzling pumps for Order of the Garter in June 2022 and again at a cocktail reception the following year at Buckingham Palace in May 2023.


2. Aquazzura Bow Tie Pump 105 in Black Suede, Cost $850

A favorite of the Duchess of Sussex, these daring kittenish heels have all the makings of a regal statement shoe. With a perky black bow at the back, pointed toe and sultry peek-a-boo cutouts, these cosmopolitan heels complement any urbanite styling.

Helping to create a classic royal uniform, the shoes are a must-have for upgrading a sleepy Windsor wardrobe into an alluring Firm fashion statement. The princess wore these striking stilettos in May 2023 for a coronation walkabout and again in June 2023 for a visit to the National Portrait Gallery. (Note: Kate’s 5 other Aquazzura pumps cost less than her Black Bow pumps and blue Love Links)


3. Gianvito Rossi Rania 105 Pumps in Silver, Cost $2695

Dazzling and glamorous, these glittery shoes add a luxe note to any look. Perfect for the red carpet or formal events, the Cinderella heels are one of Kate’s priciest pumps.

Studded with fine crystals and doused with clusters of Swarovski jewels, these mesh heels give new meaning to the phrase ‘flashy footwear.’ The princess has donned the see-through organza silk and suede trimmed shoes on six occasions including for a wedding in Jordan as well as for two state banquets (their debut occurred in 2022 at a reception in the Bahamas). It’s not surprising these sparkling shoes cost more than double her other pauper pairs as the silvery stunners are handmade in Italy with artisans embellishing each set with 4500 crystals!


4. Manolo Blahnik Hangisi 105 Satin Pumps in Emerald Green, Cost $1195

Many of Princess Kate’s posh pumps cost around $750, but these designer heels cost $450 more. The princess wore these Manolo Blahnik Hangisi 105 Satin Pumps in Emerald Green for a special portrait painted by artist Jamie Coreth in June 2002.

Kate’s third set of Manolos, these are her most luxe and expensive pair. The luminous jewel embellishment (a crystal encrusted square buckle with gunmetal frame), gives these Italian made heels more glamorous dazzle. The opulent Hangisi heels have been spotted on Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw character in ‘Sex and the City’ in the color royal blue (while Parker owns the shoes herself in black satin).


5. Jimmy Choo Mimi 100 Antracite Metallic Sandals, Cost $845

Originally priced around $850, these glamorous pumps are $100 more than many of Kate’s other high heeled footwear. The princess first wore the strappy silver heels in Pakistan in October 2019 and then during a trip to Belize in March 2022.


The crossed bridles (intertwined crisscross straps) around the ankle give these polished metallic 4-inch heels plenty of regal splendor. Plus, the event friendly sandals are lofted with a stratospheric step back stiletto heel. A delicate buckle, open toe vamp with curvy metallic straps and leather lining ensures these timeless heels are always one step ahead.
