While the Yeezy slides, originally designed by Kanye West, are not available in Australia, Adidas sells a nearly identical version for $350.
But the affordable Big W ‘Wave Zone’ women’s slippers are perfect for those on a budget.
Ideal for summer, the contoured, no-fuss design features textured soles for easy on and off.
The product is available in-store and online in brown, black, khaki and gray.
At first glance, there seem to be few design differences between the two shoes, other than a variation in the sole of the shoe.
It is likely that the more expensive shoe will feel more comfortable compared to the cheaper version.
But despite this, many said they needed Big W’s pair “immediately.”
One person commented: ‘These are insanely cheap and they look way better than Cotton On’s! brb (be right back) run to Big W!’
Another said, ‘I want this one!’

Last month, Chelsea stumbled upon another ‘dupe’ of a popular $200 pair of sandals while browsing the aisles at Target.
She found the Maia Double Band slippers to look almost identical to the Alias Mae Paris sandals.
At the store, Chelsea captured her excitement and shared images of the budget shoes in a TikTok video that was seen by thousands.
“I found the best dupes for the Alias Mae sandals,” she wrote in the video.

In the comments, Chelsea confirmed that she has bought the Target shoes which are “surprisingly comfortable”.
According to the product description, the sandals are made of soft synthetic leather and have a slightly cushioned insole for comfort.
