Kate Middleton’s favorite sneakers are back for spring and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
The Duchess of Cambridge may be partial to designer brands such as Annoushka's pearl earrings or that 70s style Reiss roll neck which looks fabulous under one of your best winter coats but Kate is also renowned for being queen of the high street when it comes to snapping up the latest must-haves, whether it’s Orelia’s gold hoops, a dress from Zara or her favorite Boden sweater.
So of course our ears pricked up last summer when we discovered the stylish white sneakers Kate wore for her visit to the London Stadium were from none other than Marks & Spencer. Oh, and they cost a mere £29.50, around $40, making them an affordable style statement, especially considering sneakers can cost upwards of £70 ($96).
The sneakers in question were M&S Collection Lace Up Ribbon Detail Trainers and came with side stripes in shades of beige and green, which coordinated perfectly with her forest green outfit.
As with anything the Duchess of Cambridge wears, the sneakers flew off the shelves. M&S clearly knew it was on to a winner and the good news is, they have relaunched the sneakers for spring and in three brand new colors.
Now available in silver or navy with pastel stripes, or classic white with monochrome detailing, the sneakers have versatility in spades.
The lace-up sneakers are the perfect off-duty shoes, whether you pair them with jeans, slouchy trousers like Kate or even a floral midi dress in the warmer months.
Best of all, they were designed with Insolia Flex technology, which is unique to M&S shoes and has been endorsed by the UK College of Podiatrists for comfortable walking.
Currently the sneakers are only available in the UK but if you live in the US, keep checking the M&S website as stock sometimes lands a bit later on international sites.
Needless to say, this is one addition we can’t wait to make to our new season wardrobe.
