You need to buy Meghan Markle’s $120 shoes before everybody else does

Everyone is familiar with “The ‘Kate-Effect” and, if you’re not, it simply goes like this: Kate Middleton wears an outfit in public and it immediately sells out, causing the brands’ website to crash. 

Well, now, that there’s a new Duchess in town, Meghan Markle has crowned “The Meghan-Effect,” which most recently crashed designer Dion Lee’s website when she stepped out in a dress by the brand. 

Most of the time, the Royals are donning something with a pretty price tag, from designers such as Erdem and Aquazurra, but the Duchess of Sussex recently paired her already sold-out Martin Grant Dress with $120 wedges during a visit to Bondi Beach with Prince Harry. 

Her black lace-up espadrilles by the iconic shoe brand Castañer (who famously created the first jute-soled wedge for Yves Saint Laurent in late ’60s) are the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Retailing for just $120, these canvas shoes are about to be well on their way out of stock.

Net-A-Porter is still carrying multiple sizes, so shop them above before you miss out on the ‘The Meghan-Effect’ and check our Meghan wearing them in the gallery below!
