The Duchess of Värmland became the latest blue blood to sport the Italian tennis shoe brand’s famed trainers, wearing a more fashion-forward version of its everyday kicks on a family outing with husband Prince Carl Philip and 2-year-old son Prince Alexander.
With its 1.5-inch chunky heel, the sneakers added a bit of height to Princess Sofia’s already long and lean frame. They also featured a cotton upper in crisp white — a classic choice that gives its $80 price tag an extensive wardrobe life.
Kate Middleton, on the other hand, has been spotted on multiple occasions in Superga’s Cotu trainers (also affordable at $65), with the brand even acknowledging that the Duchess of Cambridge has helped double sales of that very style.
The shoes couldn’t have been a more practical choice for the 33-year-old royal, who joined her family on a horse-drawn carriage ride to visit the Nynas Nature Reserve in Södermanland, Sweden. She kept the rest of her outfit clean and simple, wearing a navy blouse with white trousers as well as minimal makeup and loose waves.
