Last week me and Nick took a trip into town. We popped into Foot Asylum in the hope there would be some interesting trainers to temp us, however our eye was drew to something completely different. What we saw was an advert, similar to the one above but it was blue... Funny we though, what a complete rip off of a munny design.

Today I went back in said shop, and noticed that this design was appearing on more than just a shop advert, but that Genius Madness was in fact Foot Asylum's own brand and that they were producing god awful t-shirts of this total rip off design. Its one thing to us the design for ads, its another to profit from the £24 t-shirts.

Ugly.. in more than one way. I hope Kidrobot, sue the ass off them (as i very much doubt they gave there permission for this, and if they did, it was a big mistake! lol) I will be sending all these pics, and the others I have to my friends over at KR. You'd think national chains like Foot Asylum would know better than to completely plagiarise someone elses design.

Just stole this pic from kidrobot, cough i mean foot asylum's website...

Genius??? I think not!
