Our recent feature on the top 5 Kate Middleton shoe moments of 2012 made us realize just how much the Duchess loves her Jimmy Choo “Vamp” sandals.

You know what sandals we’re talking about — they are seemingly her go-to evening sandals for affairs that require her to wear long gowns and bring out the Royal Jewels.

Kate Middleton debuted the Jimmy Choo sandals at the BAFTA Brits to Watch Gala back in 2011:

As she is the “royal recycler,” Kate Middleton had no qualms about wearing these sandals two events in a row in May of this year:

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Kate Middleton), at Claridge’s hotel for a Thirty Club dinner in London, England on May 8, 2012

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Kate Middleton), at “Our Greatest Team Rises — BOA Olympic Concert” at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England on May 11, 2012

Like almost anything Kate Middleton wears, these Jimmy Choo sandals were sold quickly despite their $750 price tag. But, look at what we found among new shoe arrivals — a dead ringer for the Duchess’ Jimmy Choos!
