Shoes Without A Suit

The United States Supreme Court announced its decision in Already LLC v. Nike, Inc. on January 9, 2013.  The Court forbade Already (a shoemaker better known as "YUMS") from suing Nike (another shoemaker) because Nike had given Already a covenant not to sue for infringement of the trademark "Air Force 1."  Already alleged that it was planning to make shoes that would use that mark, but Chief Justice Roberts seemed dubious, writing, "If such a shoe exists, it sits, as far as we can tell, on a shelf between Dorothy’s ruby slippers and Perseus’s winged sandals."  Since the decision allows Nike to continue selling their popular and lucrative Air Force 1's, it may have a sole-crushing effect on Already.

  1. A Long island podiatrist mentioned something about this one, he said that the company had been facing a lot of cases lately. Hopefully they will get through it and be able to produce comfortable shoes.

  3. I hate hearing these kinds of issues. That’s why to avoid such things I always go to rfid technology in retail for my shoes to keep away from these cases and for “hassle free” shopping.

  5. Product imitations are very much annoying. I tried purchasing items from a local seller, but within days, I almost spent thrice the price of the item due to incidents of destruction. Buy from those who have reputation and can even accompany you through background check and reviews.-Denise
