New Balance Vs Karl Lagerfeld


In another Karl News Of The Day, everyone’s favorite sneaker brand New Balance is filing a lawsuit at Karl Lagerfeld for ripping off their sneaker design. On the right is a shoe from Karl’s own eponymous label, which doesn’t have a show slot at Paris Fashion Week for a few years already but is still being stocked at many boutiques/online stores.

New Balance’s iconic design has been around since the 70s and it’s instantly recognizable. Karl’s version is slightly similar and it’s mainly because of the huge “K” in similar treatment and font type. If you see his version in a quick glance you might even assume the “K” is “N”.

For this case are you #TeamNewBalance or #TeamKarlLagerfeld?
