Why do you hate them?

They seem understated and appropriate; not as pricey as ,say, Jimmy Choo...

I dislike them as well, they just look bad. We have an LK Bennett where I work and they have much better shoes than these.

I agree, those pumps are perfectly acceptable. They match well, are broadly on-trend, so I see absolutely no reason for Catherine to not continue to reuse them till either they start to look less than pristine, or until trends change materially.

Let's clarify I don't think they are inappropriate. I just don't like them, for a variety of reasons: the platform - while it probably makes them more confortable, it also makes them less elegant, IMO, more casual-looking, I would have chosen different nude pumps for a christening and for most of the events she attends; the shade of nude - a nude pump to look good (and to have the nude effect) needs to be as close as possible to your skin colour (like choosing a foundation for your make up), that's why there are many different nude pumps from the same brand. This particular shade of nude is too "white" for Kate, specially when she is a bit more tanned, and thus, don't blend in with her feet (ie, don't have a nude effect), they stand out, and that doesn't look good.
Of course, my "hate" (please, do NOT take the hate word too serious) is intensified by the fact that she wears them everywhere, even when they don't go with her outfit (I don't follow the trend that nude pumps go well with everything).

This said, I think she could have chosen far better shoes, far better nude pumps, even from L.K. Bennett

I really like the silhouette of the dress and I love that pastel color, glad she didn't go with blue.

I like the shoes, they are very pretty, elegant and very useful to match with other clothes.

We're just talking about those nude pumps she always wears, nothing special.

Are those the LK Bennett pumps or the Prada pumps? Either way I love them! Nothing wrong with a comfy pair of shoes esp for a woman who just had a baby.

They were identified by whatkatewore.com as the Park Avenue style by Russell and Bromley.

I was asked why I didn't like them, and I answered. Just that.

She appears to be wearing the same pair of earrings she wore to George's christening. How she must love them.
