If your bank account doesn’t quite support your dream shopping list then you’ll be pleased to learn that Poundland is here to answer your sartorial prayers.

The purse-friendly chain has sought inspiration from Gucci this season by launching a pair of £9 trainers which boast a striking resemblance to the luxury fashion house’s iconic £544 ‘Ace’ sneakers.

With the now-famous bee motif and three instantly recognisable stripes, the budget dupes are undoubtedly the next best thing to the A-list footwear.

The Gucci trainers are now a street style staple and were debuted as part of the Italian brand’s AW16 collection.

With an unmistakable green snakeskin leather panel at the back, the white lace-ups soon garnered cult status.

So good news for fashion followers, as the Poundland replicas can be purchased in-store from the brand’s Pep & Co label.

The launch comes after George at ASDA pleased shoppers by launching a pair of trainers also inspired by the Fashion Week favourite.

Although not made from leather, customers made a beeline for the £10 pair courtesy of its three stripes - causing them to sell out (twice).
