Footwear News interviews shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti. His take on knockoffs? “..they’re good. I know a lot of the time people buy my shoes to copy them, but I think, “If if my shoes cost $1,000 in the window of my store, why can’t a girl with a love and passion for shoes buy my shoes one season later for $89?” Creativity is [what’s] important to me.
