Asics Gel Oberon 8 sneakers

Gel Oberon 8 pink and white sneakers, as worn by Kate Middleton

pink & white sneakers

Kate Middleton owns several pairs of sneakers (tennis shoes, or trainers for those in the UK), including these Asics Gel Oberon 8 trainers in pink and white.

In February 2014, Kate took her dog Lupo and Prince George out for a walk in a London park.  She wore the sneakers with a pair of leggings, a white long sleeved t-shirt, a knitted tunic and a white scarf.  (View images by clicking here).

The Duchess recently wore the sneakers again, during a shopping trip to Lululemon on King’s Road in Kensington, London in February 2016. She wore the trainers with a pair of black leggings, a black polo neck sweater and a black gilet vest. Click here for more information.

About the Asics Gel-Oberon 8 sneakers:

Amazon described the shoe as follows:

The ASICS GEL-OBERON 8 Women’s Running Shoes feature rearfoot and forefoot cushioning to attenuate shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance for superb comfort underfoot while a California slip last provides stability and comfort. With an air mesh upper giving you great breathability and a compression moulded EVA midsole giving you a spongy layer to provide improved cushioning, these Oberon 7s give you an excellent ride while you run. With 3M reflective material, these shoes provide excellent visibility in low-light conditions for the runner who requires technology in the shoe and a great design on the outside too.

The sneakers boast a number of pro athletic features, which is probably why they’re a favourite amongst runners. They also have a number of A-list celebrity fans, including Lena Dunham and Reece Witherspoon.

Buying Kate’s sneakers:

The Asics Oberon 8 running shoes can be purchased for £30.00 from British company Start Fitness, where they’re described as lightweight, durable and comfortable.  Very few sizes remain.
