A Very Special Giveaway!

We have a delightful surprise to share this morning: we are doing a giveaway for (insert drum roll) a pair of London Sole shoes! Most readers are familiar with Kate’s fondness for this company’s ballet flats, she has been seen wearing them on many occasions.

So when the company got in touch and asked if readers might be interested in winning a pair of the Duchess’s fave flats you can imagine my reaction, I almost crawled through my monitor with glee!

To be more specific about the prize, one lucky lady (or gentleman) will win her choice of either a pair of Pirouette or Henrietta flats. Below, the Pirouette is shown in Burgandy Croc patent leather.

London Sole ‘Pirouette’

The Pirouette is one of the brand’s more popular styles, a classic ballet flat with working drawstring ties, retailing at $165. Below we show it in an uber-elegant Grey Patent with darker grey trim, Leopard Ponyhair with red trim and Black Patent.

Here are two pair of Henrietta quilted flats, the shoes on the left are what Kate is seen wearing up above (the chocolate croc in patent leather) on the right we see the black croc in patent, these are both wonderful basics that can be worn time and again.

London Sole Quilted ‘Henrietta’

The Henrietta is made in Spain, it actually provides more support than the Pirouette, has a leather bottom and adjustable laces – think of it as an all-day trip to the spa for your feet. This style retails anywhere from $195 to $255.  Below, the Henrietta in Quilted Black with Gold Stud detail, Red Double Stitched Patent in the center and Platine Leather on the right.

London Sole Henrietta

Some of the Henrietta styles come with a rubber sole as opposed to the more standard leather sole, the Ginger Blue Croc shown in the center is one such shoe, that pair is flanked by the Multi Glitter Fabric on the left and Silver Sequin Fabric on the right. (Can you say fun party shoes?!)

London Sole ‘Henrietta’

One editorial note, something that almost always comes up when chatting about this brand: in the UK the brand is French Sole, for those of us on this side of the pond the name is London Sole, the company is the same.
