Kate Middleton To Wear Flats!

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

None of us would be shocked to see a bride or groom walking down the aisle on their wedding day in flip flops or flats (especially those of us at flexflop!).  As the Huffington Post recently reported, none other than Kate Middleton soon to be Princess Kate, has also chosen flats as one of her “four” pairs of shoes.  Those of us here at Flexflop have tried to reach the soon to be princess and suggest a pair of flexflops, perhaps the bridal line, however, (sigh) we have had a hard time tracking down Kate.  She seems to  be extremely busy, as any bride is before the big day.  The flats are said to look like slippers and be “covered in multiple layers of silk, and heavily embroidered,” Yvonne Yorkel writes for the Huffington Post.
