Prince William and Kate Middleton released their annual Christmas card over the weekend, and the couple's two youngest children are spitting sartorial images of their royal mom. In the black-and-white portrait captured by photographer Josh Shinner, the family-of-five is coordinating in white button-up shirts and black jeans. While the Prince and Princess of Wales and their eldest son, Prince George, 10, opted for black dress shoes, the youngest siblings, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, appear to be wearing one of their mom's favourite shoe brands — Superga.
Charlotte and Louis' back canvas sneakers closely resemble Superga's 2750 Cotu shoes, a wardrobe staple of their royal mom. Kate Middleton was first spotted wearing the brand's white 2750 Cotu sneakers in 2016 on a trip to Victoria, B.C. Since their royal debut, the 41-year-old has been photographed wearing the shoes on several occasions, including the couple's royal tour of the Caribbean and the family's 2022 Christmas card.
Retailing for just $80, the canvas shoes might be one of the Princess of Wales's most affordable accessories. However, finding your size in the 2750 Cotu sneakers can be notoriously tricky, probably due to the "Kate effect" of their most famous wearer.
However, if you're willing to search, you can find the royal-approved shoe at these retailers in Canada and the U.S.

Anthropologie shoppers call the Supergas "great shoes" and "love the classic look" of the royal-approved sneakers.
They're "my go-to," writes one reviewer. "I've worn Supergas for years."
However, several shoppers note that finding your perfect size can take time, something to keep in mind if you want to take a pair home for yourself this holiday season.
