Adventures in Copyright: Lucky Brand Claws at Céline's Clog

As the tipster who sent in this AIC lamented, we're surprised it didn't happen sooner. Lucky Brand, best known for its denim, has created a clog for summer. No surprise, right? Clogs are the shoe of the season, if not the year, and finding a pair for $99 is definitely a good thing. Except when the affordable version is just a cheap knockoff.

Lucky's "Lesh" shoe is a direct replica Céline's summer style, right down to the three round studs tacking the leather onto the wooden heel and thin rubber sole.

The slight differences: Céline's hardware is gold-colored, while Lucky's is silver. And the leather on the Lucky shoe is a darker brown (and dare we say, much less attractive.)

We think we'll skip this design altogether and save our pennies for a pair of Swedish Hasbeens. You can't get more authentic than that, right?
