In September 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) visited Canada on tour. During a visit to Victoria in British Columbia, she debuted a new pair sneakers while helping to sail a ship around the city’s harbour (pictured below). They were the Superga 2750 Cotu Classics in white canvas.
Kate’s worn the Superga sneakers on a number of occasions since. They’re perfect for the casual engagements where she’s representing the Royal Family. Pictured below: Kate attending a reception for Heads Together runners at Kensington Palace in April 2017.
About the Superga Cotu Sneakers:
Kate wears the Superga 2750 Cotu Classics. The tennis shoe was invented in 1925 and it’s been a wardrobe staple ever since. The shoe features a strong cotton canvas upper and a vulcanised gum sole. The fully breathable pure cotton shoes come in a range of classic colours.
Here’s how Superga describes the sneakers:
Our Classic Superga 2750 Cotu shoe is Fashion’s trainer of choice. With an extra strong, fully breathable, pure cotton upper, our timeless shape trainer is a lightweight, simple canvas tennis shoe with our vulcanised rubber sole. In production since 1911, this is the staple shoe with full versatility, and is the very definition of smart casual.
