At least the mens version hasn't reach this level...

...yet.

But yeah there are at least 5-6 brands that rips-off that design on Macys alone.

Even Nike took a shot with the silhouette with their Dunks.

Well at least that is actually approved by whoever is running MMM these days, I can guarantee you that all these Target and Macys brand are all just rip-offs.

I mean no matter what people say about Diesel coming out with "Margiela-like" sneakers, it still doesn't come close to the OG Hi's and I never really seen any brand ripping it off that sells for $50 at a Target or any department store. I've seen Kenneth Cole try to copy the old Lanvin Hi's but you'd never mistake it for real Lanvins. The only one I remember that was a blatant rip-off is the Danielle Alesi-something, which probably wasn't even a rip-off because it probably came from the same factory and I believe quality was on par too ands till retailed for several hundred bucks.

Fuck, I guess I spoke too soon. $130 by Steve Madden.

At least it's still not the OG hi's but I have a feeling they'll come out with a rip-off soon enough once Margiela decides to release the OG hi's again.

Madden and Aldo... I actively loathe the shit these companies make... ugh. The more I see those HMMMM f'g GATS the more I hate them as well.... they really look like shit and will last all of approximately a month or so before looking like total shite!

RFX: I was gonna say there's an Adidas knock off of the velcro too



Well to be fair, MMM makes "replicas" which are copies others anyway.

Speaking of velcro hi's, do you know if MMM will they release any for SS'13?
post #17384 of 21218
agree with you jet.... but it's a blessing and a curse of the nature of the industry. I actually read a legal paper on this about fashion IP (intellectual property) as a very low IP regime... meaning that without the cannibalization and bastardization of legit designs to the trickle-down masses there cannot be any innovation for new designs (as horrendous as some of them may be). It's just create, forget, create again...


* I'm sure you realize most of this... just my 2 cents smile.gif
post #17385 of 21218
I can't knock Adidas because they've probably been doing the same style (in low-top, like Sambas & Re-split?) longer than MMM has been doing GATs.


I do not remember seeing velcro hi's from the previews I've seen here and there but then again I don't remember seeing the velcro hi's that came out this season either.
