They say "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery," but more often than not, imitation just leaves us questioning the designer—really?

Bape continues its legacy of re-working classics into their own creations, this time using the Converse Chuck Taylor as their canvas. The Chucks are time-honored and have a strong following including Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi. But who wins? Has Bape fixed what wasn't broken? Or was Converse the 1st and the best? Check the pictures and see for yourself. Cast your vote below, and tell us Who Did It Better?
