Kate Middleton took a trip to London’s Natural History Museum while wearing her favorite Veja sneakers.
Veja was the first French sustainable footwear brand to create sneakers with high-quality recycled materials, organic cotton, and sustainably sourced leather.
Here’s where you can shop her exact pair, as well as similar styles from the brand.
Kate Middleton is known for her effortless style. Unlike many royals before her, the Duchess of Cambridge is often spotted wearing comfy sneakers—and let’s be honest, we don’t blame her. So when she recently visited London’s Natural History Museum in a white t-shirt, light wash jeans, and white leather sneakers from Veja, we had to find a pair for ourselves.
Kate’s exact Veja Esplar Bicolor Leather Low-Top Sneakers are currently available in limited sizes on Bergdorf Goodman for $120. However, there are several other Veja colorways and styles to try available at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-A-Porter, Zappos, and even Amazon.
These comfortable walking shoes feature a rounded toe with a leather upper and thick rubber soles. The white shoelaces are 100% cotton, while the inner lining is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, helping to provide great flexibility and comfort thanks to its mesh structure. On the outside of the shoe, you’ll find the signature V logo which is made from rubber and rice waste. Overall, the entire sneaker is designed with an eco-friendly focus, so every dollar spent on Veja footwear goes towards a greater good.
We also can’t get over the minimalist design and how easy it is to dress these sneakers up or down, proven by the Duchess herself. From her previous outfit on a trip to her alma mater, the University of St. Andrews, Kate wore a nautical-inspired look featuring the same sleek pair of white and rose gold sneakers, complete with a black blazer and high-waisted, straight-leg pants.
So whether you’ve been on the lookout for a comfortable pair of walking shoes for your next vacation, or you simply want to jazz up your summer look, these lace-up sneakers will be a safe, Duchess-approved bet.
