Nike Takes Legal Action Against John Geiger Collection LLC

Nike is taking legal action for shoe customizer/designer John Geiger for trademark infringement.

Geiger recently released a show called the “GF-01” which resembles the Nike Air Force One. The only difference in the shoe is the “g” in cursive in place of where the Nike swoosh would be.

In Nike’s legal filing, they stated, “By marketing and selling shoes using Nike’s registered Air Force 1 trade dress, John Geiger knowingly and intentionally creates confusion in the marketplace and capitalizes on Nike’s reputation and the reputation of its iconic shoes.”
