Christmas 2011: Not all so well in shoe town

Ivanka Trump has been accused of stealing a design from designer Derek Lam. It has been reported the entrepreneur come fashion designer received a cease-and-desist letter from Lam, who claims one of her recent shoe designs is an exact replica of his Ayami wedge design. The shoe in question is a common wedge-style from the Ivanka Trump Footwear Collection. Although Ms Trump denies the claims, Derek Lam has reportedly given the heiress seven business days to pull the shoe off the market. Singer, Cheryl Cole has come under fire from fans after a pair of heels from her new shoe range was deemed faulty. Suppliers have now warned buyers there is a slight possibility the shoes may have a minor fault. Talking of ‘flesh shopping’ there was a frenzy when Nike released the new Air Jordan basketball shoes across the US. Scuffles broke out and police were brought in to stamp out unrest that nearly turned into riots in some places.
