Ok, enough small talk. I've seen the following picture circulating the web lately. It's a Jeffrey Campbell shoe, and it's supposed to be a "great knock-off" of the Acne Atacoma shoes. Now, is it only because I own a pair of Atacoma's that I can't for the life of me see what's so great about the JC pair? Sure, the shoe is only an inch or so lower, but I think that inch makes or breaks the silhouette, and makes the JC shoe downright ugly.
And then there's this. A different Jeffrey Campbell shoe, and a different brand that's been knocked off. And in this instance, I don't mind at all. I honestly wouldn't mind wearing this Burberry look-alike, and I'm not sure if that makes me a hypocrite or not. Knock-offs are ok, but only when they look good, and when I don't own the shoe that's been copied?
