Betsey Johnson Diskko Pump Vs. Madden Girl Mellony Pump

When we posted the six colors of the Madden Girl Mellony platform pump in an album on our Facebook fan page the other day, many of you commented that it was a rip off of a Betsey Johnson’s design, specifically the Betsey Johnson Diskko pump.

As Betsey Johnson’s fun and funky prints are very distinctive and almost instantly recognizable, it was pretty easy to spot this copycat.

Still, we gotta hand it to you Your Next Shoes readers for noticing it and for giving us the inspiration for this Wednesday Footwear War.

We wonder: Steve Madden acquired ALL of Betsey Johnson’s trademarks and intellectual property when they took over Johnson’s $50 million dollar debt last year, so do you think Steve Madden knocking off Betsey Johnson is still in bad taste?

Steve Madden owns Betsey Johnson so that means they can pretty much do anything they want with the label.

So who wins it for you today? Check out the Betsey Johnson Diskko pump followed by its equivalent in the Madden Girl Mellony platform pump:
