Nike has reportedly filed a lawsuit against rival brand Sketchers, in which it alleges the footwear brand infringes upon its patented Air Max 270 and VaporMax designs.
The suit notes that the company has attempted to create “Skecherized versions” of its iconic models, citing the Skechers’ Skech-Air Atlas, Skech-Air 92, Skech-Air Stratus and Skech-Air Blast models as copycat designs.
“Nike filed this lawsuit to continue to defend its design innovation and stop Skechers from free-riding on Nike’s significant investment of talent and resources that are deployed to innovate,” says the Oregon-based sportswear giant in the lawsuit.
This isn’t the first time the two companies have come to blows either, with Nike previously accusing Sketchers of infringing on its Free and Flyknit designs, although that lawsuit has been pending for the past 3 years.
