As the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has access to pretty much anything she wants. You might have to hunt down the coolest designer sneakers on your own, but all she (and her sister-in-law) has to do is ask, and a fresh pair will be sent her way. And the trendsetting royal could totally jump the line in any waitlist on earth—but when it comes to sporty style, she keeps it classic (and attainable).

On a recent trip to Belize, style bloggers spotted the Duchess of Cambridge stepping out in her tried-and-true white Superga 2750 Cotu Sneakers ($65), which cost less than a pair of studio-ready leggings. Instead of hiking boots, Middleton laced up her crisp white sneaks to visit ancient Mayan ruins alongside her husband, Prince William, confirming what we knew all along—Supergas are as functional as they are fashionable.

Superga, 2750 Cotu—Classic White — $65.00

Yes, even royals love a steal. For $65, you can dress like a Duchess, too.

This isn't the first time Middleton has been seen rocking the Italian footwear brand. In 2018, The Daily Mail noticed that Middleton repeatedly slipped into her Supergas on casual strolls and media events alike. While her love of fitness has been well documented, most of the time, she's wearing them as a comfortable walking shoe, paired with skinny jeans and an easy-going top—out and about in Canada, cheering on marathon runners in London, and campaigning for better mental health care with Princes William and Harry.

While the shoes will only put you back a cool $65, completing her look will cost you a little bit more. According to the blog Royal Fashion Police, her effortless-but-elegant look was rounded out by a white John Lewis T-Shirt ($29), olive green G-Star Raw Pants ($100) and Ray-Ban shades, which typically run in the triple digits.

Without a doubt, it's a look fit for royals. But if we had to choose, we'd add those Superga sneaks to out cart ASAP. For just $65—less than a pair of leggings—you might as well get a second pair while you're at it. Just act fast—every time Middleton wears something, sales tend to soar, and in this case they've doubled. But FYI they actually aren't sold out yet—and besides the Superga website, you can also score a pair at Amazon or Nordstrom.

So, it might be near-impossible to replicate the crowning glory of Middleton's blowout or any other of her designer clothes, but now at least your feet can get the royal treatment.
