As the speculation over Kate Middleton's wedding gown wages on, our thoughts have turned to the shoes she'll wear to walk down the aisle in.

And we're not the only ones. The peeps over at asked a selection of designers to come sketch their ideas of the crystal slipper she should wear to the ball.

Manolo Blahnik

His design: An ivory silk pump with organza lilies of the valley and sea pearls

"It represents springtime and everything fresh and new, which is what Kate Middleton is all about."

Giuseppe Zanotti

His design: A black satin sandal with large sapphire centerpiece and surrounding diamonds, on a metal-tipped stiletto

"I wanted her shoes to match the classic and sophisticated elements of her ring, but with a younger, modern edge. Jewellery for the feet is my DNA, so designing for a princess comes very naturally."

Georgina Goodman

Her design: An antique Welsh lace pump with Scottish seed pearls and pearl-inspired heel

"I wanted to create something special with an intrinsic emotional value; something old and at the same time mirroring Kate's fresh modernity. ... I have aimed for a balance between history and femininity fitting the occasion; a kind of luxury recycling."
