    We want to produce our own design canvas shoes. The only question is, is the canvas shoes a trademark / copyright infringement?

    We of course don't use logo's, the sole is different, different line etc, but how do we know if there is no counterfeit for this item. There are lot of canvas shoes in the market, so it's not clear what is possible and what not.

    Top of image you see a brand shoe, bottom image you see my example shoe.

    Only the brand will be protected by TM. With regard to copyright, I can't imagine this design is protected by Converse given the number of similar products, even by competing brands. I think you'll be fine so long as they're distinguishable from Converse i.e. no star!
