People Are Selling £14 Lidl Trainers For £450

People Are Selling £14 Lidl Trainers For £450

The trainers aren't available in the UK, but launched overseas in April

If you're on the lookout for some eye-catching footwear, I have just the ticket - Lidl's new trainers.

The bold shoes, which look strangely familiar, came out at the budget supermarket chain in April this year overseas, and it looks like they were more popular than anyone would have imagined they would be.

That's because the colourful €15 (£14) trainers are now appearing online on third party selling sites.


In fact, they're selling for more than 30 times their original value, with one pair showing up at €499 (£450) on eBay.

Sadly though, being dramatically ripped off for a pair of cheap trainers might be your only option if you have a penchant for primary colours, because Lidl told LADbible they're not likely to be available in the UK any time soon.

According to Finnish news site Foreigner, the shoes were that hotly anticipated that people were queuing up outside stores in the country, waiting for them to open.


A customer told Foreigner: "There were all the people on top of each other. The seller just shouted, remember the social distance."

Another, who was present at Kalasatama's Red Lidl, said: "Everyone lined up normally. At exactly 8am they run or quickly walked to the shop and the sneakers shelf emptied in less than 10 seconds."

One person even posted a screenshot on Twitter that showed them being sold for €6,000 (£5,440) on Finnish auction site Tori - but we couldn't find that listing to confirm.

And of course, now people in the UK have cottoned on to it, photos of the jazzy trainers are popping up all over social media.

At the time of writing, there are still a few sizes available on Lidl's Dutch website for the absolute barg of €12.99 (£12) - although they don't offer international delivery.
