Vans recently filed a lawsuit against Target over a sneaker design. The skate shoe mainstay alleged that Target’s Camella Lace-Up shoe boasts the same makeup as its signature Old Skool silhouette. The classic sneaker first made its debut in 1977 while Target’s Camella kicks only released this past August, according to TMZ.

Moreover, Vans claims that the retail giant directly stole its trademark white jazz stripe, embellishing it across the uppers of the Lace-Up. In addition, the company said that Target decided to deliberately mimic the design to stir up confusion and sell the knockoff. Nevertheless, head over to Target’s website to view the ostensible copycat shoe and stay tuned for updates on the lawsuit.
