Sure, this Pierre Hardy shoe's from 2008, but the print's so distinct that when we saw Nine West's Bonfire pump we immediately knew what we were really looking at. Prints on shoes are rare anyway, let alone 3D squares of bronze and black stacked upon each other. The size, the angle, the shadows of the square are all perfectly imitated (on an almost identical shape, too). We'll stop short of calling the shape irrelevant and focus on the fact that prints represent a danger zone for high street knock-offs, especially given the success of past print-based lawsuits from Anna Sui and Diane von Furstenburg. Nine West makes the shoe in another print, one we haven't seen before, no need for them to push it.
