Goodman was commissioned by the Royal Mint to create the shoes which are inspired by the saying "Something old, something new" (etc), the famous bridal poem which ends with the little-known line "and a silver sixpence in her shoe". She said of this lavish commission: "I was honoured to be asked by the Royal Mint to design these couture shoes to celebrate such a momentous event. I wanted to create something very classic and traditional using the silver sixpence, but also produce a design that was unique. Rather than placing the coin inside the shoe, I've taken a modern twist by embedding the lucky silver sixpence right on the front."

Could THIS be the pair Kate chooses for her Big Day?! I guess we'll have to wait and see.
