Whether you’re a fan of Meghan Markle’s style or a shoe lover (or both), you’ve likely heard of Birdies; it’s the footwear brand behind those fashionable flats that offer the same comfort as slippers. They’re so popular, in fact, it’s extremely rare to find a pair on sale — but you can right now at Nordstrom.

The department store just majorly knocked down prices on tons of Birdies flats, including a pair that look very similar to Meghan’s favorite Blackbird flat, a style she’s been wearing for years. She would often post photos wearing her beloved Birdies on her since-deleted Instagram, even wearing them around Toronto when she first started dating Prince Harry. She loves them so much, she continued wearing them during her time as a senior working royal.

Meghan was last spotted wearing Birdies during her Moroccan tour with Prince Harry in February 2019, just a few months before they became first-time parents. She also wore the same black velvet flats while taking a stroll through the Redwoods Treewalk Rotorua during their first royal tour as a couple in October 2018.

The secret to Birdies’ success? The super-cushioned soles and quilted lining, which all add up to serious comfort. It’s no wonder Meghan, the queen of comfortable shoes, stans these slippers for everything from royal tours to waking through the airport.

Her exact Blackbird flats cost $140, but these Starling Loafers look almost identical and are currently half the price. However, the Markle Sparkle has already taken effect, and they’re only available in limited sizes. If yours is sold out, there are tons of other equally comfortable and beautiful Birdies flats also on sale at Nordstrom, like this leopard print loafer and this satin fringe slide. We have no doubt these slipper-like styles will sell out soon, so hurry and get a pair before they’re gone.
