Hm. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Is it a fashion moment of "What goes around comes around"? Is it a blatant ripoff? Is it a homage to the late shoe genius? Either way, it makes me uncomfortable, although I love both designers. If you've got an opinion, let me know in the comments section. I'd love to hear someone else's take on this.
