Nike And La La Land Agree On Settlement On Warren Lotas Dunks And More

The Warren Lotas and Nike saga continues.

Last year, Nike filed a lawsuit suing designer Warren Lotas for infringing upon their famous Nike Dunk silhouette. While it seemed all but over in favor of the Oregon sportswear brand, La La Land, Lotas’ Dunk-manufacturer, has cooked up a counterclaim defense.  

La La Land has taken a slightly different approach than Lotas’ legal team, ready to bring up significant points that are sure to shake up the discussion. Among others, prominent counterclaims include that La La Land and smaller American creatives/manufacturers pose a threat to Nike’s market share and that Nike’s proposed infringement marks are not enforceable trademarks under various patent law.

UPDATE 5/3/22

Looks like there has been a settlement between Nike and La La Land as La La Land agrees not to make any more Nike infringing products such as the Warren Lotas Dunk, John Geiger GF-01, and the Air Jordan 1 Mars Yard shoe that was done by Shoe Surgeon on the grounds of a Court grants Order that terminates the infringing patent law claims made by Nike.

Although Geiger’s GF-01 is featured in the lawsuit, that has no effect on the current lawsuit battle between him and the Swoosh as he states he hasn’t used La La Land as a manufacturer in a while and Nike is still suing him.

Stay tuned to Nice Kicks as we learn more about Geiger’s ongoing legal battle with the Swoosh.
