12 Affordable Shoes Meghan Markle Loves

Ever since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, it’s no secret the world has been inspired by her seemingly effortless fashion choices — right down to her shoes. While the Duchess of Sussex has been known to rock plenty of pairs from Manolo Blahnik and Aquazzura, she also has some affordable footwear favorites that make it easy for many to copy her style without breaking the bank. From staple flats to warm winter boots, shop some of her most wallet-friendly looks under $250, below.

Rothy’s Black Solid Point Flats

Meghan swapped her heels for these Rothy’s flats twice during her 2018 tour of Australia with Prince Harry, and we can’t blame her. Not only is the knit style comfy, but it’s also eco-friendly (made of recycled plastics) and machine washable for instant freshness.

Another comfy pick on Meghan’s list is the Adidas Stan Smith. This iconic tennis sneaker has become beloved by many other A-listers and social media mavens, thanks to its easy to style silhouette and classic cushioning.

Veja V-10 Sneaker

These white sneakers made with sustainable leather are another eco-conscious pick from the Duchess. For casual outings, pair them with skinny jeans, a simple blouse and oversized sunnies like Meghan did while sightseeing with Prince Harry in the Sydney harbor. Or, you could dress them up a little with a breezy summer frock.

Adidas Ultraboost Sneaker

Markle may usually be dressed to the nines, but for a flight out of JFK airport in February 2019, she kept things more casual in Adidas Ultraboost sneakers. The comfy kicks are designed for maximum comfort, with a breathable knit upper and a sock-knit fit that’s made to move with the foot.

Everlane Editor Slingbacks

Markle is a big supporter of conscious fashion, and Everlane’s use of ethical materials was likely a selling point for her. The Everlane Editor flat has a classic look with pointed toe and low vamp. It pairs perfectly with a button-down and slacks for the office or a breezy dress like the Aritzia one the duchess chose.
