What Kate's Wedding Shoes May Look Like

Footwear designers have shown some potential wedding shoes for Kate Middleton to wear down the royal aisle. What do you think? I'd love a pair of the Blahnik's and the Goodman's. *Le Sigh*





Manolo Blahnik
His design: An ivory silk pump with organza lilies of the valley and sea pearls
“It represents springtime and everything fresh and new, which is what Kate Middleton is all about.”

 

 



Giuseppe Zanotti
His design: A black satin sandal with large sapphire centerpiece and surrounding diamonds, on a metal-tipped stiletto
“I wanted her shoes to match the classic and sophisticated elements of her ring, but with a younger, modern edge. Jewelry for the feet is my DNA, so designing for a princess comes very naturally.”



René Caovilla
His design: A white satin sandal with marabou feathers and multicolor Swarovski crystal gems
“This shoe is fit for a princess because the sandal is elegant, sexy and precious, and it suggests a magical atmosphere.”



Cesare Casadei
His design: A single-soled silk pump with jeweled straps and embroidered floral details
“Kate reminds me of a 2011 Audrey Hepburn. ... This elegant design is customized with embroidery and multishaped clear crystals, to create a waterfall of stones dancing down the foot. I can see Kate dancing all night in this ‘new tango’ heel.”



Georgina Goodman
Her design: An antique Welsh lace pump with 
Scottish seed pearls and pearl-inspired heel
“I wanted to create something special with an intrinsic emotional value; something old and at the same time mirroring Kate’s fresh modernity. ... I have aimed for a balance between history and femininity fitting the occasion; a kind of luxury recycling.”
