Penneys Autumn/Winter collection is giving us life, and the shoe selection is drawing our eye for one particular reason. 

The high street haven has come up with an amazing footwear dupe for one of the season's most popular shoes. 

Taking Instagram by storm, Vans Old Skool style low-top runner has been seen on every blogger worth her sartorial salt.

Now, Penneys has come up with their own version of the edgy skate shoe.

While not identical, the skater-inspired flats are definitely going straight on our shopping lists. 

The flats carry a pretty reasonable price tag of €10.00, so adding some edge to your look is pretty damn affordable. 

 Pair with mom jeans and fishnet socks for a casual look, or dress down a summery dress and backpack at a festival. 

We may have to purchase a few pairs.
