This is how Kate Middleton can wear high heels all day

Every time Kate Middleton steps in public, we start drooling her fashion choices (like these 18 times she channeled Princess Diana’s style). But among her signature hats and polished dresses, what we really envy are her high heels. Or specifically, how she can wear them with no sign of pain.

We’ve been dying to know how Kate manages to carry her kids, maneuver in grass, and do basically everything else while wearing stilettos. With all the meeting and greeting a royal needs to do, she’s in high heels a good deal of the time. (You can learn the trick Kate Middleton uses to repeat outfits for those events, too.) Lucky for us, some insiders just gave the scoop on how the Duchess of Cambridge manages to wear heels all day with a smile on her face.

A source revealed to Vanity Fair that Kate is a big fan of Alice Bow insoles. The paddings are made of Italian leather and slip into a pair of heels. Designer Rachel Bowman created them to cushion the foot and heel while you walk—and apparently the Duchess thinks they live up to their hype. “Kate has ordered a couple of packets, she thinks they are great,” the source told Vanity Fair. We wonder if she wore them with her second wedding dress.

The company hasn’t confirmed or denied whether they have a royal customer. Since the news leaked, though, it seems others have been getting on board with the Duchess’s secret. The company says it’s “experiencing an unexpected rush,” so you might have to wait a couple weeks if you order your own.

But the royals aren’t all about high heels and socializing. Find out what fun hobby Kate Middleton loves to do once she kicks her shoes off.
