Skechers sues Sears

The American shoe manufacturer Skechers has sued one of the largest US chains Sears (over 4000 stores), accusing it of patent infringement on its Shape-ups and Twinkle Toes products. “We have been partnering with Sears for a long time, but even with such a large network we cannot afford to violate our intellectual property,” said Skechers Consul General Philippe Paccione.

Sears sold shoes similar to the Skechers models beyond recognition, under the brands TheraShoe, Melrose Avenue, Paris Blues and Athletech, in Sears and Kmart stores.

“We are not commenting on the unfinished lawsuit,” said Sears PR manager Kimberly Friely.
