Kate Middleton has both a fabulous formal style—see also: her fuchsia Oscar de la Renta dress (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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.

And here, at the America's World Cup in Portsmouth, England:
See? She loves them, and they match all her casual outfits.
