Primark is known for its convincing takes on designer fashion – and its latest addition might be the best yet.
The bargain high street chain is selling a selection of heels that look almost exactly like Valentino’s cult Rockstud range for as little as £12 ($16) instead of £535 ($719).
Up for grabs are classic and ankle strap pumps – as well as a studded ballerina flat – in a range of colours inspired by the designer.
Below, you can see a comparison of the pumps.
On the left are the £535 Valentinos in nude, and the £12 Primark pair on the right:

These are Valentino’s Rockstud ankle-strap pump, which cost £650…
…compared to Primark’s £14 version.
He copping that Valentino, ain't no telling me "no". I love this style of shoe. One day, maybe, when I get my first professional pay check I'll spoil myself to a real pair of Valentinos. Oh wait, you thought these were real? No no. These were £14 from Primark but they're pretty convincing, am I right?

But one shopper was less than impressed and thought Primark should leave it to the pros.
I'm actually embarrassed for Primark trying to mug off Valentino heels, like why bother??????????

This is hardly the first time Primark taken inspiration from high fashion.
Most recently, it launched Minnie Mouse heels that looked just like Italian designer Oscar Tiye‘s for £14 instead of £430.
