Practical footwear is an absolute must come winter’s slush and sleet. Water stains, salt marks, and more of the like can ruin your favorite suede boots, which means it’s very likely you think extra hard about the shoes you wear to trudge through the snow. Want a pair you don’t have to worry about ruining? Then Sorel, a Kate Middleton-loved brand, is your calling card.

Last year, Kate set the sartorial world ablaze when she was spotted in a pair of Sorels while on an official tour of Norway and Sweden. Why did these boots make such a buzz, you ask? Well, not only were they a smart and practical footwear decision for the day’s activities (which included a round of ice hockey), but they were on the more affordable end for high-quality boots too, retailing for $130.

Considering Kate’s seemingly vast footwear lineup, which includes plenty of styles from luxury bands like Gianvito Rossi and Aquatalia, a pair of down-to-earth (though highly sensible) Sorels proved this royal’s wardrobe is sprinkled with more accessible finds as well. 

Sorel shoes have quickly become a highly-favored option come wintertime, though the appeal around them grew even more once the Duchess stepped out in a pair. Because when a royal owns something, we all want it, right?

Said boots are really going to be flying off the shelves this weekend, thanks to Nordstrom’s Black Friday Sale — and although you won’t be able to get your hands on the exact pair Kate wore in Sweden last year, there are plenty of equally-covetable styles that will get you through the slush and sleet with ease this winter.
