Nike ends its lawsuit against BAPE

Nike filed a lawsuit a year ago against BAPE for copying some of its signature footwear designs.

Nike ends its lawsuit against BAPE

Nike on Monday settled its trademark infringement lawsuit against BAPE (also known as A Bathing Ape), which accused the Japanese streetwear brand of illegally copying its designs, including the Air Force 1, Air Jordan and Dunk, according to a new filing in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

The lawsuit states that the two parties have ended the litigation with a “stipulated dismissal”. As part of the settlement, BAPE agreed to discontinue production of its BAPE STA Mid, COURT STA and COURT STA High models, as well as to redesign its BAPE STA and SK8 STA trainers, according to a statement from Nike.

What happened?

A Bathing Ape is “a significant danger” to its rights as a “copycat whose infringement has grown recently and whose current footwear business revolves around copying Nike’s iconic designs”, the sports giant told the judge.

The BAPE STAs appear to bear too many similarities to the Air Force 1 Low; the BAPE STA Mid to the Air Force 1 Mid; the SK8 STA to the Dunk Low; the COURT STA High to the Air Jordan 1 High; and the COURT STA to the Air Jordan 1 Low. A conflict that has been brewing since 2005, the year in which BAPE first launched its designs, and which has been settled once and for all in court.

adidas N BAPE is already the silhouette of the moment.
