Kate Middleton's Favorite Casual Boat Shoes Are On Sale

Kate Middleton has both a fabulous formal style and a lovely relaxed style. One of the shoes she loves to wear, her trusty Sebago boat shoes, look like they're particularly comfy and practical when Kate is out with kids or traveling with Prince William. And, as Page Six first spotted, the "Bala" style is on sale for just under $95.

Kate Middleton has both a fabulous formal style—see also: her fuchsia Oscar de la Renta dress at the Royal Opera House this week—and a lovely relaxed style. When she's spending time with the kids or at a more casual engagement with Prince William, Kate often loves skinny jeans, a simple top or sweater, sometimes a polished blazer overtop, and wedges or flats. One pair of shoes she loves to wear, her trusty Sebago boat shoes, look like they're particularly comfy and practical. And, as Page Six first spotted, the "Bala" style is on sale for just under $95.

This is yet another example of Kate's uncanny ability to pair classic high-end pieces with more affordable, yet still classic clothes. This was on display earlier in the week when Kate donned a J. Crew sweater that retails for $80 and is still available online.

In case you needed proof that Kate loves her Sebago shoes: Here she is, during her overseas tour to Canada with Prince William.
