The Classic £50 Sneakers That Come Kate Middleton–Approved

Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, Preen—these are the usual go-to brands that the Duchess of Cambridge likes to wear. But she's not always attending big fancy red carpet events, oh no. Instead, she's often out on activities that require a much more dressed-down approach. For this type of event, she often wears high street, such as Zara or J.Crew, and even Topshop.

Most recently, during the royal visit to Canada, Kate Middleton wore a pair of £50 white sneakers for a visit to the Sail and Life Training Society. The royal paired the trainers with skinny black jeans from Zara and a wax jacket by Troy London. The look was perfect for a bit of sailing (not that we really know sailing, but if we were to go, this is definitely what we'd wear), but it's also just a chic way to do casual style. A perfect gentle stroll in the countryside type of outfit. 

The trainers in question were the classic white plimsolls from Superga, which we know Alexa Chung is also a fan of, so that definitely makes them a must-have pair of trainers. We suggest you wear yours with a pleated skirt and T-shirt, a pair of skinny jeans and your favourite jumper, or just with a midi dress. Keep scrolling to see the full look worn by the Duchess of Cambridge and where to shop the trainers right now.
