Meghan Markle is rarely seen in anything but high heels.
But the mother-to-be broke the fashion protocol when she slipped into a seemingly simple pair of black flats for the schlep up to the Sydney’s Opera House on day one of the Royal Tour of Australia.
It turns out there’s more to the shoes than meets the eye, and currently everybody wants a pair. They are made by US brand Rothy’s and they are already a bit of a cult favorite. These designer shoes come in a variety of photogenic styles and colors.
The best thing about Rothy’s is that their shoes are made from recycled water bottles. So every time you wear one, you will feel like a snobbish eco-warrior.
The shoes and pumps are machine washable, light, super flattering on the foot, and compact enough to stash in your handbag. And pleasingly, unlike everything else the Duchess of Sussex has worn so far on this tour, these shoes are actually very affordable. They cost around $200.
Naturally, as soon as the netizens got the wind of Mehgan’s shoes, searches for the brand name spiked on search engines and bulks started selling out online.
This is a clear proof that ‘Meghan effect’ is alive and thriving. Yesterday, when the Duchess debuted her tiny baby bump in a Karen Gee dress, the brand’s site crashed immediately as people across the globe hollered to purchase the item.
Astonishingly, internet searches for ‘purple folder’ also peaked when Meghan stepped off her Qantas flight grasping two such items.
It seems like whatever Meghan is wearing or holding it sells like hotcakes on the internet within a few hours. Girls certainly look up to her as their role model.
Well, there is no doubt; the Duchess is surely a trendsetter and a fashion icon.
