Kate Middleton's trainers get nearly as much attention as her stunning evening gowns or on-trend suits. For more low-key looks, the Princess of Wales is partial to a pair of box-fresh trainers, whether that means bright white offerings from brands like Superga and Veja, or her trusty pair of navy New Balance. 

Princess Catherine has an enviable trainer collection, which includes some of the  best white trainers on the market. We've seen the Princess wear everything from light plimsole-style trainers and cut-off jeans in the summer months, to more functional (but still stylish) tennis trainers when hitting the courts. 

Princess Catherine favours a handful of classic trainers for more casual royal outings, active days at work or when taking on a sporting challenge. We've identified her pick of brands and designs, and where you can buy Kate Middleton's trainers on the high street.

It's no secret that the royals love Superga trainers, with Meghan Markle also spotted in the popular Italian brand. Kate's late mother-in-law, Princess Diana was also a big fan of these designer plimsols and often wore them with stylish smart-casual outfits. Made from breathable cotton with a sturdy rubber sole and lightweight design, it's no wonder the vegan-certified lace-ups are part of Kate's comfy, smart-casual capsule wardrobe

Kate doesn't just own one pair of New Balance trainers, she's had multiple over the years, varying in styles and colours, proving that she's a true loyalist to the brand. 
And she's not the only fan. Fashion powerhouse Miu Miu partnered with New Balance for a new trainer line back in 2022 and they're a firm favourite with A-listers like Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon.

These New Balance trainers have an angular reworking of the tried-and-true wedge silhouette, putting equal emphasis on style and substance. They're available in three different colour ways to suit your style.

Kate's been spotted in the New Balance Vazee Transform Trainers (pictured above) previously, as well as a striking navy blue pair (pictured below). Sadly, Kate's Vazee New Balance trainers are no longer available online, but the 327 iteration will add a chic finish to any sporty outfit.

The future Queen Consort is Patron of the Rugby Football League and Rugby Football Union and since taking on her role she's not been afraid to get involved on the pitch. Last year we saw the Princess of Wales don her trusty Lululemon Chargefeel 2 Low Shoe trainers for an engagement in Hull, where Kate took part in a Rugby League Inclusivity Day at Allam Sports Centre. And they might just be the perfect casual white trainer.

Worn by the Princess of Wales on several occasions, the trainers have a dual-density midsole and pressure-mapped outsole. Available in multiple colourways, these classic workout shoes are incredibly practical and look slick, too.

Another favourite when it comes to Kate Middleton's white trainer collection is her Veja Esplar leather trainers, which she wore back in 2021 when she joined William as they returned to the University of St Andrews, where they met 20 years ago. The environmentally friendly, sustainable shoes are bang on trend, and Kate's metallic version adds a touch of glamour.

Back in 2018 and 2017, the Princess of Wales was pictured wearing trainers perfect for high-intensity workouts – a pair of the best running shoes for women from Nike, the Air VaporMax Flyknits. While the exact pair are no longer available, Nike's Air Max 270 make a great replacement.

These stylish running shoes are suitable for higher-impact activities like tennis, with a design that draws inspiration from Air Max icons. Choose from three different colour ways.

Kate Middleton's Babolat trainers

Princess Catherine donned some serious trainers for a match with none other than international tennis champion Roger Federer last summer, investing in a £135 pair from Babolat, who specialises in practical and stylish tennis trainers. The Princess opted for a pair of Jet Mach 3 shoes by the French brand. These lightweight trainers, which retail at £134.99, are designed to give wearers maximum stability and comfort.

These slick trainers are a Wimbledon classic - so there's no doubt that Princess Catherine chose them for her stint on the courts. The Jet Mach 3 offers comfort and stability in an impressively light shoe.
