And read below for some insight into the designers’ inspirations:

Sophia Webster:
“The coloring for [my] shoe is representative of British heritage — red, white and blue — and the zigzag trim lends itself to bunting, usually seen at royal celebrations.”

Sam Edelman:
“The world today is all about equality: same-sex marriage, unisex fashion and [my] perfect equal-opportunity baby slippers.”

Ralph Lauren’s Phoebe Goodman:
“Ralph Lauren’s iconic preppy style was easily translated into British royalty with Royal Stewart plaid. The gold soutache trim and luxurious linings felt perfectly fit for His Royal Highness.”
