Big W shoppers are raving about a pair of $12 sandals that fans claim are a “perfect imitation” of a designer version.

The budget retailer has launched a new range of women’s ‘cut-out’ slides in three different colors – black, brown and beige – and many claim they are similar to the expensive model.
Despite the huge price difference, many customers pointed out the key features that the cheaper option does not offer.
Hermès sandals with the iconic “H” neckline are made in Italy from calfskin, while Big W’s mules are made from synthetic.
“Big W came away with Hermès sandals,” Abbey said as she walked through the shoe rack looking for mules.
“Oh my God, they are so cute and so kind. They’re literally the same… Of course they’re not exactly the same, but for $12 they’re cute duplicates.
“So comfortable, wore them all day yesterday.”
Her video has been viewed more than 320,000 times – and many confirm they’re obsessed with the Big W foils.
“I also got both black and brown colors. They are actually so comfortable. And so cute,” said one.
Another shared: “I bought these weeks ago and can confirm they are so comfortable.”
One added: “They are so cute, I love them, I have them too.”
Many said they couldn’t wait to head to their stores to get their hands on a pair.
“Thanks dear, literally, I’ll get one tomorrow,” said one.
Another suggested: “And so cute for the great price of $12.”
One said: “Omg slay.”
Meanwhile, some reported that the wraps had already sold out at their local store – one said: “I’m patiently waiting for a restock.”
