ANTA bites Nike Air VaporMax

Brands biting other brands is nothing new, but this recent sneaker blatantly rips off Nike’s popular Air VaporMax.

Chinese sportswear company ANTA recently dropped a runner that look nearly identical to that of Nike, including the instantly recognizable air sole.

The price, however, is the major difference. The Nike Air VaporMax retails for $190 USD, while ANTA’s version comes in at around $50 USD.

It was released in various colorways, and as of press time, ANTA had removed the silhouette following backlash from the widespread criticism over the blatant rip-off.
