Picking up a pair of designer heals doesn't always have to come with a luxury price tag, as Primark have just unveiled a new pair of £14 heels that are the spitting image of Valentino's - but cost £636 less.

Primark's has created its own version of Valentino's iconic Rockstud stud heeled shoes, which currently retail at £650, and apart from the mesh rather than shiny texture, look exactly the same as its designer doppelgangers.

Both Valentino's version, and it's super cheap replica, feature statement studs and the same T-bar style strap, and is potentially the closest high street copy yet to a designer show.

They will come in three different colours - grey, nude and leopard print - and will apparently hit shelves next month, although there's no word on when exactly.

Just like Valentino, Primark will also be releasing a flat version of the famous studded shoe, as well as heels, which will be available in navy.

There's also a flat version, or in Valentino's words, "ballerina pumps"

Sadly, you can't shop at Primark online, so the shoes will only be available in stores around the country. However if you fancy picking up the real deal, you can get Valentino's £650 Rockstud heels or ballerina flats online at Matches.

The lookalike pair was origianlly spotted by the Liverpool Echo , but it certainly isn't the first time that the bargain fashion brand has released a budget copy of designer footwear.

And it appears the rest of the high-street are also following in similar footsteps, with Aldi having released a range of copycat products over the past year, including Jo Malone candles, Kitchen Aid mixers and even knock off San Pellegrino.
