Steve Madden is in Big Trouble
Can you tell the difference between these shoes? I’ll give you a hint one costs $1,159 and other costs $129.95 a fraction of the cost of the original. Crazy, right? See the problem?
Alexander McQueen(left) is suing Steve Madden for the “studied imitation” of Mcqueen’s motorcycle inspired booty. The Alexander McQueen version has been photographed on the feet feet of Lindsay Lohan, Amerie, Mary-Kate Olsen and Rihanna among others and we can assume the interest to recreate the shoe at an affordable price is intense. I am not sure whether we can blame Steve Madden for creating the Seryna bootie to meet the demand. We’ll wait and see what happens.
