Designer Peter Jensen Receives Death Threats Over Boots

Of all things that would could earn death threats from, who wouldn’t assume it would be for a certain boot design.. if you’re with me on this one, prepare you get your boat rocked.

Apparently this is a sore lesson to all: don’t screw with Greenlanders, because they’ll take you down if you mess with their traditional designs. I personally think this is a case of massive overreacting, though when a country has a teensy population of 57k that makes them fight fiercely from having their traditional dress hit mainstream fashion tastes.

Compare the images below; there is no denying the similarities, but I wouldn’t say it warrants death threats.
