Lidl has released its own branded pair of sneakers which are now being sold for up to £450 on resale platforms at more than 30 times their original retail price.

The branded trainers were released in Lidl stores across Finland, but have drawn widespread attention from sneakerheads worldwide.

Launched as part of Lidl’s wider branded apparel line, which also included sliders, socks and t-shirts, the shoes were sold for the equivalent of £14.

However they have now flooded resale platforms like Ebay and Depop, appearing on both platforms for hundreds of pounds.
