It’s nearly impossible to overstate our love of white sneakers. Versatile and comfy, they’re the footwear phenomenon we hope will never go away. One person we’re pretty sure shares our love of fashion’s MVP trend? None other than the Duchess of Sussex herself, Meghan Markle. Before becoming royalty, Meghan was spotted in a pair of the Reebok Classic Leather white sneakers on several occasions, often wearing them to and from yoga class.

Reeboks have become hugely popular among other celebrities, too, including Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid, and Priyanka Chopra — and for a good reason. They can easily be dressed up or down, meaning they look as polished with Meghan’s favorite skinny jeans as they do with her high-end Strathberry handbag. Actually, you’d be hard-pressed to find an outfit these kicks couldn’t pair with; from distressed denim to floral dresses, they go with everything and make a cool (and comfortable) alternative to traditional flats. Plus, they’re an ultra-wearable way to get in on the chunky “dad sneaker” trend without actually looking like your dad.

If you’re in the market for a fresh pair of white sneakers, you’re in luck! For a limited time only, you can score a similar version of Meghan’s beloved white Reebok sneakers for just $50 on Amazon (other colors are even on sale for as low as $36!) Nearly 1,000 Amazon shoppers love these classic kicks, too: “So comfortable!!” wrote one reviewer. “I have been wearing these two times a week, more than eight hours a day and the cushion on the inside has not gone down at all!! These shoes are amazing for long wear.”

“These shoes are SO CUTE…They go well with basically anything in my closet,” said another customer. “Considering getting the black pair to match with some darker outfits as well.”

Fashion’s obsession with this shoe has yet to show any signs of slowing down. And with Meghan cosigning on this style, suffice it to say: The white sneaker is bound to stick around for a while. Long may it reign.
