Meghan Markle Just Wore Sneakers to a Royal Event for the First Time–Here’s Where to Buy Them
Meghan Markle’s white sneakers are the royal style inspo we needed.
During her travels through Australia this weekend, Markle hit the Sydney Harbour with her husband, Prince Harry, to watch an Invictus Games sailing event. While on the boat, Meghan kept things casual, wearing a windbreaker, Outland black denim jeans, and a pair of oversized sunglasses by Krewe. But, the pièce de résistance of her adorable outfit was her sneakers.
The shoes are constructed with all sustainable materials, including leather upper and are lined with organic cotton. The soles of the shoes are even made from “wild rubber originating from the Amazonian forest,” according to the company. Each pair then comes with a V logo stitched in leather on the side.
While Meghan’s pair were white with a black logo detail, the shoes also come in contrasting black and white, white with green logo detail, and white on white. Best of all, the sneakers retail for just $140, though they’re going fast thanks to Meghan’s fashion influence.

The brand makes many similar styles to the pair Meghan sported, including the same style in more colorways ($150; zappos.com).
If you can’t get your hands on a pair from the brand, here are a few other lookalike options that will keep you looking as cool as the duchess too.
1 Veja Sdu
For a really similar shoe style that has a bit more structure to it, go for another Veja’s line, the Sdu. The shoe is made from recycled plastic bottles and comes with synthetic leather panels along with its signature organic cotton lining. It also comes in pink, black, and white versions.

3 Nike Classic Cortez Leather
Nike sneakers are always a stylish choice, and these could be a dead ringer for the Veja shoes. The Classic Cortez sneaker features a leather upper as well and comes in white with a black logo, contrasting black and white, or white on white.

4 Tretorn Nylite Plus
The Tretorn Nylite Plus is a near identical style to Meghan’s pair. However, instead of leather, these shoes are made with a canvas upper, which may make for easier cleaning. The Tretorn also comes in a variety of colors including white on white, pink, green, blue, and contrasting black and white.
