Move over, Supergas! Kate Middleton may have another favorite sneaker in the running. The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted wearing a pair of grayish-blue New Balance sneakers for The King’s Cup Regatta, a charity sailing race, in which she competed head-to-head with husband Prince William. While Kate is often seen in classic white Superga sneakers when dressing more casually, she’s sneakily been wearing New Balance kicks for years.
Kate’s love of the brand dates back to at least 2017, when she competed yet another race against Prince William during a Team Heads Together London Marathon Training Day at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Facing off against her husband that time, The Duchess of Cambridge wore a pair of black New Balance sneakers with red stripes that matched her red jacket, creating a super sporty look.
Kate’s love for New Balance didn’t end there: She wore another pair of NB sneakers while playing soccer with young girls at The Irish Football Association’s “Shooting Stars” program in Northern Ireland in February 2019. This time, Kate opted for a navy style to go with her athletic pants and lightweight blue jacket worn over a striped sweater.
