I believe replication of styles and designs is inevitable. Afterall, designers are also humans, not machines. Look at these lace-ups in the coming season. Can you tell who the designers are?
nevertheless, no matter how gorgeous they are, I am not really a fan of such lace-ups because whenever I am in such shoes, I tend to slip. I can only achieve the sense of security in these lace-ups when walking on grass or soil. Perhaps it is really owing to my bad habit of walking.
