On her recent royal tour, Kate Middleton has been giving us epic style moments one after another. First, she stepped out in a floral midi dress that screams summer, and then she found a way to make cargo pants look sophisticated. For her latest fashion statement, the Duchess yet again wore her go-to pair of espadrille wedges, and you can get a similar version of the espadrilles from the same brand for $135 at Amazon.

The Castañer wedge espadrilles have been a staple in Kate's warm-weather wardrobe for years; she's worn them for plenty of occasions since 2019, including an outing with the Queen. But the love for this brand in the royal family doesn't stop with Kate. Pippa Middleton has been wearing Castañer espadrilles since 2017, while Meghan Markle wore them repeatedly on a royal tour in South Africa in 2019. And though she only played a princess on TV, Anne Hathaway is also a fan of the brand's shoes

You can shop Kate's exact pair of Castañer Carina wedges at Net-a-Porter, and while this specific version isn't available on Amazon, you will find similar options from the same brand — the main differences being thicker straps and a lower price point. Available in 10 colors, the Castañer wedges on Amazon have a 4-inch heel with a 1.5-inch platform, rounded toes, a canvas upper, leather lining and insoles, lace-up closures, and raffia wedge heels. According to one Amazon reviewer, the shoes are "absolutely beautiful" in person, and they're "perfect for summer."

To channel your inner Kate Middleton, wear the espadrilles with a vibrant pink midi dress, like this $61 silky one from The Drop. Or, you can take a cue from Anne Hathaway and dress them down with a pair of straight leg jeans, a casual tee, and a tote bag. 

Even if you haven't worn wedges in ages, you can't deny that both the reviewers and the royal family are making a strong case for bringing them back this spring and summer. Especially if you have any outdoor weddings or events coming up, espadrille wedges are a great way to stay comfortable and stable regardless of where you may find yourself standing.

Grab a pair of the royals-approved Castañer wedge espadrilles, and you may be surprised by how much use you get out of them this season.
