I don't know what is these days with me and replicas :) They just keep popping before me. Like these Demonia boots that reminded me( a lot!!!) of NEW ROCK boots.
The metal heel, over top lacing and buckles were always the New Rock stuff. Or am I wrong?? It's just not nice. And a little bit sad. To me it's the same as the brand admits that it is out of any new ideas.
