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.
Adidas Stan Smith
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.
Birdies Starling Slipper
An updated take on the classic smoking slipper, this pair offers seven layers of responsive cushioning and a plush quilted lining. The exact black velvet version Markle selected is available for $95 on Birdies.com. You can also purchase it in a range of other finishes on the site, including cheetah print calf hair and a cognac-colored leather.
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.
Sam Edelman Sally Flat
A classic ballet flat never goes out of style, and Sam Edelman’s Sally is a budget-friendly choice. The Duchess sported the shoe, complete with a sharp pointed toe silhouette, on a royal tour of Africa last October. Shop the shoes on Amazon.com now, with prices starting well under $100.
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.
Castaner Carina Wedge Espadrilles
A high jute wedge and elegant ankle ties make these wedges a go-to summer look. Wear them with practically any off-duty outfit, like a colorful maxi dress, as Markle did on Bondi Beach.
Reebok Classic Leather Sneakers
Before she was royalty, Markle’s style was also defined by a few comfy pieces — like these classic Reebok kicks. The Duchess was spotted wearing them to and from yoga on multiple occasions.
Muck Boot Reign Tall Rubber Riding Boot
Markle stepped out in these sturdy rubber Muck Boots, complete with a waterproof upper and shock-absorbing footbed during an outing in New Zealand last October.
Sarah Flint Grear Sandals
Sarah Flint, by far one of Markle’s favorite shoe brands, offers these chic strappy sandals featuring ankle ties and two leather straps. The shoe is stocked in a number of colorways, including the brown favored by the Duchess as well as this stunning gold and silver variation. Although the the brand’s styles top out at $495, these sandals cost just under $250.
Kamik Sienna 2 Boots
Perfect for braving cold temperatures, these all-weather boots are waterproof, lightweight and insulated. The original version Markle has worn since 2016 is nearly sold out on most sites, but you can still shop a similar version of the style at Zappos.com.
