US sports giant Nike has indicted Adidas for copying shoe technology and asked a US trade agency to block imports of a significant portion of its Adidas AG Primeknit footwear range, writes New Retail.

A complaint was filed with the International Trade Commission in Washington, DC, Nike accuses Adidas of copying the company's patented technology to produce a special knit fabric that reduces waste without sacrificing performance.

The company has asked for an import ban on the Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultraboost, Pharrell Williams Superstar Primeknit Shoes and Terrex Free Hiker hiking shoes collection.

At the same time as the complaint, Nike filed a patent infringement lawsuit in federal court in Oregon.

Nike says it took decades of research and cost the company more than $ 100 million to develop an innovative knit upper for the upper. "Unlike Nike, Adidas has abandoned independent innovation," Nike said in a court statement.

Adidas said it is analyzing the complaint and will defend itself against charges.
