We love a royal repeat, but especially one that we can still snag on sale. This week, Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh, stepped out wearing what have recently become one of her go-to winter styles: her brown suede over-the-knee ‘Piper’ Gianvito Rossi boots ($1,995; $930).

The Duchess paired them with a cream-colored skirt and green blazer while visiting the Katherine Low settlement in London earlier this week. She wore the same boots to Kate Middleton’s annual ‘Together at Christmas’ holiday concert in December, once again pairing them with a bright white.

Details about the boots that are worth noting: They come with a high heel (3 and a quarter inches — go Sophie!). The block style ups the wearability and comfort and we especially love the shade of chocolate-like brown (called ‘Texas’) the Piper boot comes in. Even better, Sophie’s royal repeat nods to a recent trend to wear boots that hit above the knee, which is so chic and modern.

One teeny tiny caveat worth calling out if you choose to invest: Yes, the boots are half off (a total steal), but you’ll want to be certain of your sizing given that to snag this price, these boots are final sale. If you want to buy with an option to return, there are still a couple of other places that have Sophie’s exact style, but the markdown isn’t as high. (Net-a-Porter currently has the same Gianvito Rossi pair for $1,197—still a 40 percent savings, which isn’t bad.)

Just think of all the places you’ll wear them.
