Vans Sues Target For Copying Their Iconic “Old Skool” Sneakers

Well, it looks like Target is next on the list to be sued for copying another brand’s design. 

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Vans is not very pleased that Target began selling their “Camella Lace-Up” sneakers, which is very similar to their 1977 iconic “Old Skool” sneaker. 

Target’s version of the sneaker hit the stands in August and immediately began to receive negative feedback in their reviews, as customers called them “fake Vans.” 

Vans claims that Target’s shoe features a very similar jazz stripe, which they feel that Target intentionally copied the distinctive look because they knew it would create confusion so the knockoffs would sell. 

Vans wants all of the sneakers destroyed and the profits made from the sneakers. 

According to TMZ, Target is aware of the lawsuit and “Have a deep appreciation and respect for design rights.” 

Target reps say their vendor is looking into the claims.
