It’s no secret that footwear companies borrow various technical aspects and stylistic details from one another. Often times, this ends in a lawsuit, however, as now we may have a fresh controversy brewing.
Norwegian brand SWIMS currently has a shoe for sale, dubbed the Breeze Leap Knit. Upon first glance, you’ll immediately notice the midsole that bears a striking resemblance to adidas’s patented Boost tooling. SWIMS simply refers to the it as an “airy Leap outsole,” though, but we’re not sure adidas will see it that way.
In addition, the slip-on welcomes a fully knitted upper, with a stretch collar.
So, is this a blatant ripoff of Boost? Hit us with your thoughts in the comment section.
