Burberry And Nike Flyknits From INR 1,500 At Bangalore’s Knockoff Paradise, National Market

Navya posted on 04 August

Ten-Second Takeaway

One of Gandhinagar’s best-known landmarks, National Market is a budget shopper’s favourite. Navigate the narrow aisles of this crowded complex for amazing deals on luxury knockoffs, export surplus shoes, and second-hand mobiles.

In Good Company

Fashion conscious shoppers should head straight to the basement level of the complex. You’ll find rows of closely packed shops selling up the snazziest of goods. Some of them stock quality knockoffs. You can pick up Burberry sling bags and Michael Kors totes. These begin at about INR 2,200 but you can bring it down to INR 1,500 or even lesser if you possess stellar bargaining skills. Stylish watches are a great buy too.

There are also plenty of stores that specialise in export surplus shoes. We spotted all the top brands here from Vans to Nike, Puma and Adidas. They even have shiny dress shoes that will look perfect in your formal wardrobe. But we had our greedy eyes on the Nike Flyknits, Lebron James sneakers, and Air Jordans that ranged between INR 3,000 – INR 4,000 {before bargaining}.

Mobile Mania

Before the advent of online shopping platforms, National Market was Bangalore’s go-to-place for all things electronics. Yes, it was the grey market but the shops here would source from Japan and Korea, so you could walk away with durable goods at throwaway prices. But things have changed drastically over the past decade. And now a huge chunk of the market is dedicated to second-hand mobiles and repairs. From iPhones to Samsungs and Motorolas, you can snap up mobiles for half of their original price or even lesser.

Those of you looking for quirky and fun mobile covers, you’ll hit the jackpot at National Market. Covers shaped like Batman masks, a pack of Marlboro cigarettes, and ones that have mirrors to check whether your makeup is in place, find them all here. Prices for these start at about INR 450 but you’ve got to bargain.
