Primark is selling shoes that look exactly like Prada’s for £8 instead of £470

Primark

Budget-friendly high street chain Primark is known for its impressive “copies” of designer pieces and statement sell-out items.

Now, the retailer has upped its game.

Primark is selling an almost exact replica of Italian designer Prada’s £480 bow-adorned, velvet slippers — and they’ll only cost you £8.

Primark’s Instagram post featuring the mules in the three available colours — black, blush, and denim — ignited an outpouring of delight among shoppers looking to get their hands on a pair. The image, posted two days ago, has been liked more than 25,000 times so far.

Fashion influencers have been clogging up Instagram feeds with snaps of Prada’s on-trend pointed flats.

Blogger Aimee Song posted a photo of her in the real deal, and it racked up over 40,000 likes.

Another blogger, sincerelyjules, posted a photo of the mules paired with some cropped khaki trousers.
