Nike Sues Adidas

It’s not a secret that there’s a huge rivalry between Nike and Adidas. They’re two of world’s biggest sneakers manufacturers and it’s natural that there will be issues raised from time to time between them.

So what happened now? Nike discovered that its competition may be using a technology that they’ve patented a while ago to manufacture several models of sneakers that competed directly with Nike.

And you guessed it! Nike filed a suit on Adidas so stop them from expansion.. for a while.

The sneakers in question are the Adidas Adistar Cush M shoe, Adidas Cushion shoe and the shoes from the Kevin Garnett line.

These are supposed to infringe Nike’s patent for its SHOX system.

The court documents say that Nike asks Adidas to pay for the prejudgment caused, plus all the cost associated with the lawsuit.

We’ll see how this ends.
