We've all been yearning after Kate Middleton's closet for years now, and by the looks of things, this isn't going to stop anytime soon. As long as Kate continues to step out in the most chic and stylish royal outfits, we're going to continue to live in our jealousy (and wonderment). And while her dresses and coats often steal the show, it's important to also pay attention to her footwear. As a royal, she is somewhat required to be sporting heels most of the time, but the things this duchess can do with a pair of shoes is astonishing. Not only does she brave long days in pumps and stilettos, but she also makes them look freshly stylish all the time. 

Yes, we do envy Kate's access to unbelievable accessories, but that doesn't mean that we can't stop and take a moment to appreciate all of her best footwear moments -- and there have been plenty of them, trust us. We'll be the first to admit that we marvel at everything this duchess does, but it's for good reasons. She's been somewhat of a pioneer of royal fashion, breaking a few rules along the way, of course, but she's always stayed true to the regal sensibility. 

And it shows in her shoes. The duchess has donned heels, wedges, flats, and boots, and of course, she rocked them all. And somehow, with every new outfit, she seems to look even better than she did before. We aren't quite sure how she does it, but it must be some closely kept royal secret. 

So here are 40 times we wished we could steal Kate Middleton's shoes. Be prepared: These photos are known to cause a sudden urge to go shopping for footwear. Don't say we didn't give a warning. 

  • Thick Black Heels

    When you're pregnant, walking in flats is difficult, so we can't even imagine what it's like for Kate to battle heels. Luckily, she chose this wide-heeled pair to make things a little easier. 

  • Nude Heels

    There's nothing more classic than a quality pair of nude heels. Kate rocks these like the best of them.

  • Coordinating Navy

  • Working Boots

    Now this is a rare sight: the duchess in short booties. Normally, if Kate is going to go the boot route, she'll opt for tall riding boots. But not this time. She went uber stylish in this pair of black booties.
