In February 2016, Kate Middleton wore a pair of ASICS GEL-Solution 3 Speed tennis shoes at a tennis workshop in Edinburgh.
The workshop was part of Judy Murry’s ‘Tennis on the Road’ initiative. The organisation tours schools in Scotland hoping to inspire children into taking up tennis. (You can learn more by clicking here).
For the tennis workshop, Kate needed sporty footwear. She chose ASICS tennis shoes.
