Thanks to Kate Middleton, Nude Pumps Are Selling Out Everywhere

It's no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge loves her a nude platform pump—she's constantly photographed in her favorite LK Bennett pair, pictured at left. We're also well aware that when the royal beauty wears an item—any item—by a specific designer, it tends to sell out in no time. But now, it seems that even pieces inspired by and/or resembling those the Duchess favors, regardless of their label, are also flying off shelves.

Vogue UK reports that one pair of Middleton-inspired nude "court shoes" has sold approximately every two minutes over the past week. Oh, and that's just at a single retailer—the British chain Marks & Spencer, to be exact. M&S' version, affordably priced at £19.50 (or about $32), is available at Marksandspencer.com. As for those of us on this side of the pond, we thankfully have plenty of tan, beige and taupe pumps to choose from too. Click through to shop some truly Duchess-worthy footwear that isn't completely sold out.
