One of the things we miss the most about pre-Megxit life are the Meghan Markle style sightings. Over the past couple of years, our Duchess of Sussex OOTDs have been reduced to the occasional interview or campaign appearance. 

Sure, we're happy for them living out their California dream, but selfishly, we miss the glitz, glamour and introduction to cool new brands that came with regular royal engagements.  

Because, in addition to the thousand-dollar dresses and heirloom diamonds the Duchess had on rotation, Meghan Markle also introduced us to one of our favourite shoes: the Veja V-10 sneakers (shop here in Canada, here in U.S.).

The mother-of-two thrust the brand into the spotlight back in 2018 when she wore the sustainable V-10 sneakers during a royal engagement in Australia.

The comfy fair-trade sneakers are crafted from sustainably sourced materials, including wild Amazonian rubber, organic cotton, rice waste and recycled plastic bottles.

Meghan's sister-in-law Kate Middleton has been spotted in the sleek tennis sneakers on a handful of occasions, including during her recent visit to The Natural History Museum in London, England.

'They go with everything'

Nordstrom shoppers call the Meghan Markle-approved shoe a "must-have" and say they are "perfection in a sneaker."

"The quality is top-notch," says one shopper. 

"They are chic and comfy," writes another. "I keep getting compliments on them."

With an average rating of 4.8 stars on Nordstrom, shoppers say the Veja V-10 sneakers run true-to-size and are easy to style. "I [feel] very stylish wearing them," writes one reviewer. "They go with everything."

However, a handful of shoppers note the sustainable sneakers take a few wears to break in, something to keep in mind before placing your order. "Definitely very stiff leather at first, but they'll wear in," cautions a shopper.

"Break-in time for me was two full days of wear...walking 5-6 miles each day. On day three, these were super comfy."

Verdict

Sleek and stylish, these classic tennis shoes with a twist are a royal (and shopper)-approved buy for fall. However, if you're looking for a shoe with no break in period, you may want to pass on these.
