Wealthy celebrities are following in Camilla’s footsteps by buying the queen consort’s favorite bunion-busters, but with five-inch platforms.
They are the queen consort’s favorite shoes: comfortable bunion breakers that British makers, Sole Bliss, claim she has worn more than 80 times.
And now, a host of celebrities are following in Camilla’s footsteps, albeit with a more glamorous twist.
Instead of the Queen Consort’s most beloved Valencia pumps, celebrities like Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman have opted to wear the brand’s pumps, complete with 5-inch platform heels.
When Colman, 49, walked the red carpet on Tuesday at the premiere of the upcoming BBC series Great Expectations, she paired her navy lace Vampire’s Wife gown with a silver Louboutin bag. But peeking out from the hem of the sequined dress was a £199 pair of heels.
She certainly looked more comfortable than when The Mail photographed her at the 2021 premiere of her film The Lost Daughter on Sunday, barefoot and in her £895 Jimmy Choo stilettos.

Her stylist, Miranda Almond, also seems to have discovered Remy 5-inch platforms, which come in six colors, including Ms. Colman’s silver suede and snake.
Sole Bliss calls for their shoes to contour around bunions, as well as cushioned soles, wide widths, and a deeper toe box to support the arches. They also contain a device to prevent pronation: the rolling of the feet inwards.
Actress Julia Roberts wore gold Remy platforms to the Ticket to Paradise movie premiere in October. The shoes were apparently so comfortable that she wore them again to the Critics’ Choice Awards in January.
Countryside presenter Anita Rani and actress Viola Davies have since worn them at the Baftas last month. and Dame Helen Mirren wore a pair to the premiere of their movie Shazam! in Rome this month.

“It’s incredibly exciting to see so many celebrities wearing our platforms,” said Sole Bliss founder and designer Lisa Kay.
‘I believe that all women deserve beautiful shoes, whether you suffer with your feet or not.’
Podiatrist Dr. Brad Schaeffer, from the television show My Feet Are Killing Me, said, “When it comes to wearing high heels, there are certain things you need to keep in mind to protect your feet.”
‘Look for shoes with a wide toe box, arch support, a supportive insole, and plenty of cushioning underfoot. These shoes tick all of these boxes.
