It’s almost a right of passage for the women of the royal family to all become fashion icons. With every appearance they make, fashion lovers are quick to steal a style tip. Thankfully, Meghan Markle’s famed Madison Ankle Strap Pumps came back in stock at Banana Republic, so fans can nab a Duchess’ style right from under her feet.
The popular pumps were first seen on Markle (pre-Archie) when she was strolling with Prince Harry throughout their Australian Tour back in October, which Footwear News reported were from Banana Republic. And while people are fangirling over the idea of Marklles’s less expensive taste in shoes, fashionistas want to know where to get them before they’re gone — again.
According to a Banana Republic brand rep, the dubbed Madison Ankle-Strap Pumps had sold out (likely due to the Duchess herself), but are getting a restock in five new colorways. While the original blueish gray hue that was first seen on Markle isn't offered, the colors available in the restock are still eye-catching. Plus, there's always hope for a restock. The lineup does, however, feature the popular pumps in black patent leather, taupe patent leather, silver leather, peachy pink patent leather, and burgundy patent leather.
All the colors of the Madiscon Ankle-Strap Pump are available online at BananaRepublic.com in sizes 5 to 12. Each of the shoes also retail for $128.
Markle's style has been one that people are always trying to cop, but these cool and edgy Banana Republic pumps are more neutral, allowing wearers to dress each one up or down.

If you've ever been afraid of heels, these ones won't run you back to your classic sneaks. Not only do these babies The Banana Republic website named this show the 12-hour Ankle-Strap Pump is because the show actually offers comfort for that long (and even longer than that).
The leather is flexible to contort to the shape of the foot while the comfort pods in the sole offer comfort, and the skid-resistant outsoles will keep the wearer from an unwanted tumble. Considering the Duchess is out and about — and probably standing — for hours at a time, a decent pair of comfortable heels lets her get through a day's work of royal duties.

For the Invictus Games, the Duchess had rocked a plethora of expensive outfits, however, she dressed down during the day and donned these Veja sneakers that retail for only $150. So chic and so (royally) cheap.
There's not a day that goes by that onlookers aren't waiting for Markle to make her mark in the public wearing affordable pieces. Until next time, fashion lovers will just have to simmer down with these cute pumps.
