Editor’s Notes: H&M is back at it again with a blatant rip-off of a high-end sneaker. This time the Balenciaga Speed Trainer serves as the inspiration for H&M’s budget version.
While “homages” such as this are nothing new, it’s always interesting to see how similar the designs end up looking. That being said, a market for sneakers like this obviously exists, as not everyone is able to shell out hundreds of dollars for a pair of shoes.
So, if you’ve been looking at adding a sock-sneaker to your rotation but have balked at the price for the high-end models, this might be the sneaker for you.
