New Balance Sues Karl Lagerfeld

One hundred thousand shouts to fashion's evil overlord Karl Lagerfeld for these terrible Canal Street bootleg versions of a New Balance sneaker. But New Balance ain't having it. According to Hypebeast, who says according to TMZ, the sneaker company is suing Lagerfeld. And yeah, sure, they're basically New Balances, but c'mon, New Balance, no one is going to confuse an incredibly expensive, uglier version emblazoned with the wrong letter of the alphabet with the real thing, primarily because I'm pretty sure anyone that purchases sneakers from a guy that most definitely owns laser cats has no fucking clue what the fuck a New Balance even is to begin with.

    Is the new trend with high-end designers to knock-off lower price point shoes blatantly? Tom Ford Aldo’s and then this.
