Mystery Solved: Pippa’s ankle boots are by Kate Kuba.

A few days ago we posted an article taking a closer look at Pippa’s ankle boots.  We stated that we didn’t know the designer of the boots and provided you with some affordable alternatives.

The same day Tanya, one of our readers, posted that she had found the exact pair of boots on eBay.  She informed us that the boots are by ‘Kate Kuba‘ and the style is the ‘Marvin’.

I contacted Kate Kuba on Facebook, where a member of the team excitedly explained that they remember seeing Pippa shopping regularly in their Kings Road store when it was open, before the Royal Wedding.  So it looks like Tanya’s ID is spot on!

I asked Kate Kuba to email me with any information regarding the boot and they confirmed it was an older design:

“The Marvin boot is from 2 seasons ago, and is a fashionable mid heel ankle boot from Kate Kuba. It is cast in rich leather (suede) and features lace up front and cone shape heel. Suede upper/Leather sole/2″ heel.  Originally £129”

Where to buy:

Because the shoe is from a past season, it’s no longer for sale on the Kate Kuba website.  You can, however, buy this exact boot on eBay at the moment in UK size 2.5.  They’re currently listed at £25. Click here to see them on eBay.

If you’d like to buy this same boot as Pippa, but in a camel colour, they’re currently available on Amazon, on sale for £78 in a UK size six:
