Yes, Zara’s back at it again. Earlier in 2016, the retailer was slammed by beloved Instagram artist Tuesday Bassen over its pin designs that bore an uncanny similarity to her own work.
Its latest victim is Balenciaga’s Speed Trainer. Demna Gvasalia’s version saw a black knit sock upper atop a textured white midsole – now compare that to Zara’s “High Top Black Sock Sneakers.” It’s the same sock silhouette over a chunky sole.
The copycat will cost you $70 USD compared to Balenciaga’s $545 USD price tag. What do you think about Zara’s latest indiscretion?
