For footwear, the Duchess honored another tennis legend with a shoe from On Running and Roger Federer’s collaborative line. The On “The Roger Advantage” silhouette features everything from a Tailored Speedboard for smooth movement to the brand’s signature patented CloudTec technology to create the ultimate cushioned feel. Fans can shop Middleton’s choice of an all-white colorway for $140 via the On website.

“The minimalist design and easy comfort of On’s shoes had me hooked years ago. I wanted to infuse the tennis sneaker with the same lightness, comfort and agility for every day,” Federer said in a statement when he first joined forces with the brand. “I love working with the On team, using my knowledge of performance footwear and personal interest in fashion to contribute to product development. I’m proud to be a part of the creation of The Roger, which is the most comfortable tennis-inspired sneaker you will ever wear.”
