In case you had any doubts, the Meghan Markle Effect is very real. Whenever she steps out in a new outfit on her current royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand, for example, the Duchess of Sussex causes a shopping frenzy, resulting in tons of sold-out items. While we're obsessed with her ethically made skinny jeans and her accessible Club Monaco trench coat, we tend to zero in on her shoe choices in particular.
Markle has single-handedly caused shopping spikes for a handful of shoes that immediately sold out, including J.Crew ankle boots, Sarah Flint pumps, Stella McCartney sneakers, and more. Scroll down to see how she's styled the sold-out shoes and shop similar versions for yourself. It never hurts to cross your fingers for restocks, either—after all, her sold-out $65 Banana Republic shoes just came back in stock today.
