They’re the Duchess of Sussex’s high heels of choice – and now they can be yours for £355.
Meghan Markle – or, to use her official royal title, the Duchess of Sussex – has always been a fashion icon, with pretty much every single thing she wears selling out almost instantly.
However, the so-called “Meghan effect” has never been more noticeable than it has in recent months, particularly when it comes to her footwear.
First up, we had Meghan’s eco-friendly fashion sneakers – aka the black and white Veja V-10 trainers she donned for her and Prince Harry’s royal tour of Australia in October 2018. In the hours after the first photos of her and Harry’s trip across the Sydney Harbour hit the internet, online searches for Veja V-10s skyrocketed, shooting up by 118%, resulting in it being named “the world’s hottest shoe”.
Next, there was the saddle-coloured ballet pumps which Meghan wore to the 2017 Invictus Games – her first official engagement with Harry. The flats, which retail at £264.63, sold out almost immediately after Meghan stepped out in them (although they’re now back in stock, hurrah!).
And now Meghan’s favourite blush-coloured high heels – suitable for summer weddings, work events and afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace – are finally, finally available to pre-order online, too.
Meghan, as fans of the royal will already know, tends to favour a high-heeled shoe. Indeed, she showed some serious strength and agility when she played netball in a pair of stilettos. And one of her go-to shoe designers is none other than luxury footwear brand Tamara Mellon.
But, while Meghan owns at least five pairs of Tamara Mellons, her most iconic are the blush-coloured heels she wore on her first official outing as the Duchess of Sussex.
Meghan was first spotted in the Siren pumps when she wore them to a garden party in honour of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday at Buckingham Palace.
Since then, they’ve been pretty much sold out online ever since. Now though, as noted by People, the Nappa leather shoes are finally back in stock – and available for pre-order now.
So what’s so special about this shoe in particular?
Well, according to the Tamara Mellon site, “the Siren pump appears to be magically floating on your foot” when you wear it.
“But in reality,” the description continues, jovially taking us behind the curtain, “it’s thanks to the PVC detail.”
Who knew, eh? Throw in the fact that the heels are handcrafted in Italy, and you have something that’s truly fit for a… well, a duchess.
Tempted? The shoes are available to pre-order online from the US store at $450 (approximately £355) and almost all sizes are currently in stock – although supplies are already running low.
Essentially, if you want a pair of Megahn-approved heels, you’d best hotfoot it to your computer ASAP: they won’t be available for long.
