Amazon called out for by Allbirds for similar-looking footwear


Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery — and Allbirds is passively aggressively touting Amazon for its reproduction  The eco-friendly shoe brand, based in San Francisco, called out the multinational e-commerce retailer in an open letter on Monday, accusing it of ripping off its shoe design with a nearly identical copy Advertisement  But instead of threatening to sue Amazon, which Allbirds co-founder Joey Zwillinger likened to “bringing a knife to a gunfight,” he urged Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to be better Most Read Actress, model file lawsuit saying they were beaten in anti-white attack at Midtown nightclub New Jersey hospital gave kidney transplant to wrong patient Now, China must relent: Beijing is being intransigent in the wake of a historic defeat in Hong Kong  “As we’ve done with over 100 other brands who were interested in implementing our renewable materials into their products, including direct competitors, we want to give you the components that would make this shoe not just look like ours, but also match our approach to sustainability,” wrote Zwillinger on Monday  While Allbirds’ wool-blend sneaker will set you back $95, Amazon’s version sells for less than half the price, reported GeekWire [More U.S. News] Disturbing video of horse being dragged by truck lands two in jail » Allbirds isn’t the only company that Amazon has apparently copied It has over 100 brands of similar products offered at significantly cheaper prices, according to GeekWire  Zwillinger then appealed directly to Bezos to utilize the same materials in Allbirds’ shoe with its version, notably the sustainable foam used on the shoe bottom  “Not only were we able to crate a natural version of what has historically been petroleum-derived, but we’re also removing carbon from the atmosphere and locking it away with one of the most photosynthetically-efficient crops, fighting climate change in the process,” wrote Zwillinger “You can use it. We want you to use it.”
