Kate Middleton added a new pair of white sneakers to her shoe collection during her trip with Prince William to Scotland – and it wasn’t her usual choice.
While most of us loved Kate and Prince William’s affectionate jokes on the couple’s Scotland tour, some of us couldn’t help but notice the trendy white sneakers and yet sensitive that Kate sported. The couple’s vacation involved a lot of walking which as we all know doesn’t work in heels. Instead, Kate chose chic Veja sneakers, which is also a favorite brand of her sister-in-law Meghan and celebrities Reese Witherspoon and Katie Holmes.
It shows a move away from the Duchess’s Superga sneakers as she opted to pair her black blazer, striped sweater and black pants with a simple pair of white Veja sneakers.
The shoes also follow its sustainable fashion practices, as French brand Veja is known to be transparent in its production process. The shoes use durable materials including leather from Brazilian farms and a tanning process free from chromium, heavy metals and dangerous acids. Each sneaker is also topped with a sewn “V” (the brand’s signature).
And it’s not just Kate, Meghan, Reese and Katie. Emma Watson is a fan, as are Emily Ratajkowski and Chloe Grace Moritz.
If you’re looking to splurge on a new pair of sneakers, these royalty-approved shoes are perfect for adding a touch of chic to almost any outfit, and what’s more, they’re durable.
