Call it the ‘Meghan effect’ or the ‘Markle Sparkle.’ By any name, the Duchess’ influence is no joke. And what better example than the massive waitlist she stirred up for a single pair of perfect flats?

If you’re not yet familiar with Sarah Flint, now is a great time for introductions. Based in New York, this direct-to-consumer shoe brand caught Meghan Markle’s attention way back before she landed at Kensington. A loyal (royal) fan, Markle has been spotted wearing a multitude of Sarah Flint styles on countless occasions.

Her most frequent go-to, though, is easily the Natalie flat, a luxurious, pointed-toe style. When Meghan first stepped out in the Italian leather flats on an outing with her boo Harry, the internet just about lost it. The style sold out almost immediately, and quickly racked up a waitlist of 25,000 people eager to channel Meghan’s effortless style.

As of this morning, the Natalie has finally been restocked, not just in her preferred Saddle Vachetta, but also in Black Vachetta, Red Calf, Chocolate Leopard Hair Calf, Gold Nappa, and the newest color, White Calf.

This isn’t the style’s first restock, and it won’t be its last. The Natalie is notorious for its fast sell-out rates and periodic dry spells as the creators work hard to keep up with demand. The style only just came back in stock today, but inventory is already running low (or out) for some sizes.

If you want a shot at scoring these Meghan-loved shoes, you’ll need to act fast. Shop the Natalie for $345 at
