    Christopher D. Burns LOL, nah, I actually like NB. Enough so that I design my last shoe after their models. The S.E.A.L. New Balance resold for over 300 per pair and some models still go for that much. This issue is a sign of the times. Everything is taken out of context now.

    -Question: Do you/did you have any problems from NB by using their models?

    • Not a single issue. Once I realized that it didn’t make sense for me as a small company on a bootstrap budget to try and create a shoe from the ground up, I didn’t even try it anymore. I knew that when I made Sho-Shot and I used the And1 outsole on that shoe I saved a ton of money on that release. As long as the outsole logo is removed then there isn’t an issue. BUTTTTTT you have to be very careful. Using a “free” outsole can lead to infringement issues so be careful if you decide to do it. We do live in a litigious society.
