Kate Middleton is known for her willingness to recycle pieces from her wardrobe, but there’s one item — her Penelope Chilvers leather boots — that she’s had in her wardrobe for more than a decade.
The knee-length boots feature a tassel detail on the zipper and a small buckle on the cuff. They normally retail for $750 but are available on discount now at Moda Operandi for just $450.
Middleton was first spotted in the boots in 2004 — long before she married into the royal family. Then, Middleton posed in a button-down shirt and a green skirt, paired with the classic boots, at the Game Fair at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England.
She was seen in the boots again just a year later, wearing them to the Festival of British Eventing in Gloucestershire as part of a Western-inspired ensemble.
In 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge took the boots on the road, wearing them for multiple hikes throughout the globe. She first took them to Paro Taktsang in Bhutan, where she hiked in them alongside her husband, Prince William. Middleton wore the shoes with slim-fitting green pants and a vest for an adventuresome look.
Then, in September 2016, she took the boots to the Great Bear Rainforest in Canada, wearing them with dark jeans and a tan coat.
Middleton was last spotted in the boots in November, when she paired them with a Barbour coat and black pants while paying a visit to Robin Hood Primary School in Birmingham, England.
