Karl Lagerfeld vs New BalanceNew

Posted by Beni Schaub at 4:04 PM
New Balance is waging a sneaker war against one of the most iconic names in high fashion.  They are claiming Karl Lagerfeld ripped off its trademark sneaker for his new shoes.

Shoe Brand Comparison

According to a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- New Balance claims Lagerfeld is using a block capital letter "K" on an otherwise identical shoe design.  NB claims this creates confusion.

The sneaker company points out it's been using this design since the '70s, noting even fashion blogs have seen the similarity ... one with an article titled, "Wait did Karl Lagerfeld just knock off New Balance sneakers?"

New Balance wants to stop Karl in his tracks.

Tune in to TMZ on TV weekdays Monday through Friday (check http://www.tmz.com/when-its-on for syndicated/local for listings)
