Queen Consort Camilla has worn these comfy shoes 80 times – Footwear News
Queen Consort Camilla, like much of the British Royal Family, is known for her classic, formal style. However, the new queen is also fond of specific shoes and even has a must-have style that she has worn many times over the years.
The block-heeled leather pumps most worn by the royal family come from Sole Bliss. The British brand is renowned for their comfort-focused styles, which feature leather-lined uppers and three layers of underfoot cushioning, making them cushioned shoes that can be worn with ease all day long. Its shoes also feature hidden elastic stretch panels designed to comfort bunions and combat joint pain, making them even easier for everyone to wear.
Camilla owns at least 11 pairs of Sole Bliss heels, which she has been spotted wearing numerous times over the years; in fact, since 2018, she’s estimated to have worn one of her most spotty pairs — the Valencia pump — at least 80 times, according to a statement from the brand.
The Valencia pump is a versatile leather shoe, featuring a patent square toe and 2 inch block heel. The $269 style features a wide fit for roominess and comfort, along with the aforementioned padded lining and insoles. Its versatility is also highlighted by its textures and color palette of black, nude and navy blue.
Camilla was also frequently seen in Sole Bliss’ Kitty pumps. Similar to its Valencia style, this $259 pump features a leather upper with comfortable interior additions. However, the Kitty has a more formal appearance with pointed toes and thin 1.75 inch kitten heels.
However, Camilla isn’t the only star to notice Sole Bliss; the brand is also worn by Kate Middleton, Helen Mirren, Judith Light and Emma Thompson. In fact, Light herself wore a pointed-toe set of the brand’s padded pumps on the 2022 Tony Awards red carpet earlier this summer.
The royal is the latest member of the family to align their style with a must-have shoe brand or style. Previously, Kate Middleton was known for her own penchant for pointy-toe pumps over the years; in fact, she even owns the Gianvito 105 pumps by Gianvito Rossi in five colors.
