Nowadays, more than ever before, sneakerheads must be very wary of fake sneakers being passed off for big bucks. In the case of the LA Gear MVP, no one will be fooled into thinking they are actually Air Jordan IV’s, but they are close enough that they might as well be selling them out of the back of a Canal Street bodega instead of calling them their own style. In an effort to bottle the nostalgia from their late 80’s/early 90’s hey-day, LA Gear has chosen to adopt some very recognizable attributes of one of the all-time greatest sneaker designs. While many other companies have paid obvious tributes to aspects of some classic Jordan models, the LA Gear MVP flagrantly tries to pass it off as their own.

Both Nike and Reebok have already sued LA Gear for ripping off their designs back in the early 1990’s and it appears that their lawyers should begin prepping for a follow-up. LA Gear, who’s Catapult sneakers were a not-so-subtle version of the Reebok Pump, are no strangers to “improving” on other brands’ success. We know that they are only trying to get some buzz back for their shoes, but sneakerheads in the know will never fall for this weak attempt. If you are not swayed by any of this and are only interested in where you can cop the LA Gear MVP, you can pick up a pair at sportiela and pretend they’re real Air Jordans. Via theshoegame.
