They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It happens a lot. So often, in fact, that we like to ask our readers "Who did it better?" from time to time when we see a new release that closely resembles something we've seen before.

Not even grandma's spiked eggnog kept us away from the blogs over the vacation, so we were on it when Louis Vuitton posted photos of its latest silhouette for summer 2011. The Louis Vuitton Acapulco is super sick (in a heavily logo-heavy hood rich kind of way), and features perforated calf leather and an ankle strap. But when we saw it, the resemblance to Nike SB's Dunk Mid were a little craze. What do you think? Has the high-end brand one-upped Nike SB's version of the Dunk Mid, or does SB take it? Check out detailed pics after the jump and let us know who did it better...
